When thinking of the french capital, we all instantly come across the concepts of design, fashion, good cuisine and of course, beautiful interiors. People who love the so-called “French style” are really into that particular modern-meets-traditional-meets-glam look so often found in Parisian apartments. It’s a mix of old and new, traditional design offset by modern, and always very chic and stylish, just like the fashion sense that only the french manage so well. To give you proof of that, here’s a rooftop apartment in Paris that is a vision of la vie bohème. You’ll love it.
The armchairs in the living room, as well as the sofa, cocktail and side tables, are designs by Casamidy. The rug was bought at Ikea, and the wall is painted in Farrow & Ball’s London Clay.
Generally speaking, you don’t see a lot of bold color on the walls of French homes. Particularly in Paris, it’s all about white. That’s what we see in this dining space.
In this apartment we can witness how the French know the value of minimalism and aren’t afraid of empty space, on their walls or their floors.
The terrace, overlooking the rooftops of the 3rd arrondissement, is a must in this home. Who wouldn’t love to live in an apartment, in a central location, with a beautiful view over the city?
In the master bedroom, the bed cover and throw, as well as the 18th-century Italian headboard are very bold in their colors. Also, looking at the furniture combinations, we see that the French don’t seem to suffer from a preoccupation with new. Older, worn pieces of furniture are placed next to newer pieces and antiques with little concern.
The kids’ room combines color in a very simple way. White walls are matched with colored details in the furniture and decoration items. The result is a modern interior design.
Recreating Parisian interior style and adding that certain je ne sais quoi to your space must seem very easy to accomplish now that you’ve seen the beautiful interiors of this rooftop apartment. What did you love the most?
