Paris Apartment: A Modern Twist on Classic Haussmann Design
Explore the Parisian Apartment, a 2023 marvel by Christèle Remy, where classic Haussmann charm meets eclectic modernity in the heart of Paris. This renovation highlights original features like parquet flooring and moldings, paired with unique finds like a Chesterfield sofa and bespoke headboards, creating a space that’s both timeless and contemporary.
Reviving Parisian Elegance
We embarked on a transformative journey, renovating a 95m2 (1023 sq ft) Haussmann-style apartment while preserving its original charm. This included the iconic parquet floors, elegant moldings, and a spacious living area. Moreover, the project entailed thoughtful room layouts, intricate decoration, and meticulous furniture selection.
Additionally, we focused on sourcing distinctive second-hand furniture to enhance the apartment’s character. Key pieces included a leather Chesterfield sofa, office-designed armchairs, and a vintage 1950s Scandinavian piece.
Modern Touches in a Classic Space
Furthermore, the architectural renovation primarily involved creating an additional bedroom. This new space emerged from a section of the large living area overlooking the boulevard. Subsequently, we revitalized the well-worn original parquet, infusing chic style into the kitchen. This revamp featured a sleek black granite worktop and backsplash.
Finally, every bedroom benefited from custom-made headboards. We paid special attention to lighting and wallpapers, ensuring each element contributed to the apartment’s unique ambiance.
