Elegant, lavish and stylish is how one can describe the renovation of a Haussmann style apartment in Paris, signed by Patricia Mauguy Flores from PFBDesign. The renovation of this private residence had one main goal, and it was successfully achieved: to enhance the majesty the high ceilings and the ornate moldings give to the apartment, with a creative symbiosis between luxury furniture and an eclectic color scheme.

Patricia Mauguy Flores was requested to work in the overall design of the apartment, which meant that the designer had one big challenge: to manage the space of a large living room and the contiguous dining room, entrance hall, and kitchen.
In the living room – a very light and airy spacious chamber – the designer made the most of the herringbone parquet floors, marble fireplace, double doors and floor-length windows. She chose neutral colors for the sofas, rugs, and baccarat style lighting fixtures, which were key to making the apartment feel timeless and even more spacious, while decorative items like throw pillows and other furniture pieces such as ottomans and armchairs bring a pop of bold purple hues and ochre. One of these key items was the DUKONO armchair from Brabbu, placed in a joint area, set for reading.
The color palette used in the dining room was based on a neutral background. It’s a chamber with plenty of natural light, filtered by white and lilac curtains, which give greater height to the room. This allowed the designer to go for a bold turquoise set of chairs and an audacious purple rug. The two grand chairs at both tops of the dining table, NAMIB also from Brabbu, were custom made to perfectly match the room design.
And, what happened in fact, was that the passion Patricia has for interior design, noble materials, and the association of colors reflects on this spacious apartment in a way that her clients, a young family, instantly surrendered to it too.
Indulgence and amenity define the master bedroom, which is vestured with beautiful velvets. Dramatic black curtains, toning with the throw pillows on the bed and armchairs, make the room cozier and prevent all the light from coming in. A large patterned headboard fills one of the walls, while an imposing golden mirror lays on the other, lodged on the floor.
The bathrooms were planned for a better functionality. One of them, mainly used by children, didn’t have natural light or ventilation, so the solution found was to implement two doors. Marble walls and white vanities aggrandize the room, whereas colorful art makes it more appealing for the kids.
The guiding principle of Patricia’s work was based on her client’s expectations and the creation of the desired ambiances for their life. Mixing innovation and tradition, comfort and originality, the designer effectively transformed this apartment and made it a space unique for this family.
