15 OF THE MOST STYLISH ROOMS IN PARIS
This dreamy French living room evokes the outdoors with its sky-inspired walls and ceiling. The living room's Cubist lamp is from the 1930s, and the rug is custom made.
SLEEK AND MODERN DETAILS
This modern dining area sits in a historic Parisian apartment that was gutted and renovated to the owner's liking. The Eros marble dining table is by Angelo Mangiarotti, and the Seagull chairs and light fixture are by Arne Jacobsen.
This bold sitting area combines color, texture and pattern in one cohesive, stylish space. The armchair by Carlo Colombo and a 1970s French desk are paired with a Biedermeier chair; the walls are painted in Farrow & Ball's Brinjal.
ORNATE GILDED MIRROR
The living room in a 19th-century Parisian apartment screams glamour with its ornate detailing and gilded accents. The daybed is upholstered in a Lelievre velvet, the 1930s cocktail table was found at the Drouot auction house, and the gilt-wood mirror and marble fireplace are original to the apartment.
The kitchen in designer Cordelia de Castellane's French home is accented by wine-red cabinets and airy windows. Plastic reproduction Henry Massonnet Tam Tam stools set the tone in the room.
RUSTIC DOME CEILING
The guest bedroom in Bryan Adam's Paris home fits perfectly with the basement's rustic stone-and-plaster ceiling and walls. The bench was a flea-market find, and the bedding and pillows are by Calvin Klein Home.
Nothing screams Paris quite like the combination of black and white stripes with antique-inspired metallics. The master bath's nickel-and-brass tub is 19th century, and the chair is by Honoré Paris from Galerie Yves Gastou; the wall stripes are painted.
In the worldly library of an apartment in Paris's 7th arrondissement, the 18th-century desk is English, the armchair is from Westenholz Antiques, and the desk lamp was made from a Ming vase; the Italian mirror dates to the early 1700s, the Japanese wood deity is from the Heian period, and the curtains are of a Ralph Lauren Home striped cotton.
The living room of Pierre Yovanovitch's 17th-century château is the epitome of streamlined chic. The custom-made sofas are covered in a Rogers & Goffigon linen, the circa-1940s armchairs are by Otto Schultz, and the cocktail table is a 1949 design by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings.
WELL-EDITED GALLERY WALL
Plates from a book of Picasso works and a drawing by Eric Fischl hang above a pair of custommade sofas in Sabine de Gunzburg's living room; the vintage parchment-covered chairs are upholstered in a Rubelli fabric, the bamboo side tables are family heirlooms, and the rug is by de Gunzburg.
ROMANTIC, AIRY CURTAINS
In the romantic dining room of Andrew Gn's apartment, the English mahogany table and the Swedish chandelier and commode are 18th century, and the Louis XVI mirror is from the South of France; the chairs in front of the windows are Directoire, and the curtains are silk.
STATEMENT MOSAIC TILES
The opulent tiles on the walls and floor of this bathroom make it the perfect oasis. The marble mosaic tiles on the walls and floor of the master bath are original to the apartment; the 19th-century Chinese-style light fixture was found at a flea market in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.
The mirrored walls and floral details in the dining room scream Parisian chic. The dining room's ceiling color was matched to a ribbon found in India; an Italian chandelier is suspended above a vintage Royale table by Jansen.
In the entrance room of this colorful Parisian home, the console is sheathed in leather and mussel shells, and the chaise longue is upholstered in a Donghia fabric. The pillows and throws are made from antique Pakistani fabrics, the stool is African, the lithograph is by Jean Cortot, and the porcelain fireplace is late 19th century.
This bohemian master bedroom makes great use of the apartment's layout. The bedcover and throw are by Le Monde Sauvage and the rugs are by Muskhane; the 18th-century Italian headboard belonged to Midy's grandmother, and the 20th-century French desk was her father's.
