In the first caption above, the dressing room is a mirrored chamber lighted by a 19th-century brass-and-glass chandelier. In the second caption, we see a Louis XVI sofa dressed in a Lelièvre velvet from Scalamandré; The pillows are from Casa Lopez.
Sauvage worked with designer Franz Potisek on the renovation of the dining room, which required painstaking restoration. Blue hues cover the walls and give a pop of color to the floor.
An oculus in the ceiling opens the master bath to the dressing room above. A big window allows natural light to come in.
The bedroom, also designed by Potisek, is dressed in bespoke fabrics. For instance, the sofa is upholstered in velvet, giving the room a luxurious feel. The home decor mixes some styles, but it all works out as a very lavish apartment.
