Dreaming of Paris...
The idea of Paris in the Fall is enchanting. The idea of this beautiful apartment in Paris is dreamy. It was designed by French designer Jean-Louis Deniot - for himself. Having relocated from a tiny 485 square foot apartment to a larger apartment in the heart of the Carre Rive Gauche antiques district, and just a two minute walk to his office. The apartment had been run down, but Jean-Louis worked his magic in creating a stunning transformation!
The living room with a 1930's Cubist lamp and custom made rug.
In the entry wall the pedestal was designed by Deniot and the walls were painted to match the marble floors.
In the dining room hangs a chandelier from the 1840's and the walls are covered in a custom wallpaper.
The kitchen cabinetry was made by a craftsman in Morocco from clad hammered silver, the countertops and floors are marble, the sink is from Franke.
In the master bedroom, the pendants suspended over the night tables are from Stilnovo, the night tables were designed by Deniot, the upholstered wall behind the bed is by Zimmer + Rohde velvet.
In the master bath, the cabinetry is painted to mimic the plaster-fluted walls, a custom-made medicine cabinet is flanked by Felix Agostini sconces, and the Duravit sink has fittings by Dornbracht.
The guest bathroom features alternating strips of French and Portuguese limestone.
