TODAY’S DECOR INSPIRATION is a two-bedroom from the 1930’s, located on the Left Bank of the Seine, Paris. The owner, an avid contemporary art collector, had wanted the heavy plaster cornices, marble star on the floor and gilt of the apartment’s “old-fashioned grandeur” removed for a “light and unpretentious interior”. While it may never, ever occur to this maximalist to remove the grandeur from the bones of a paris apartment . . .
. . . the calming shades of parchment and tobacco, Louis XV of Massant-style chairs, David Hicks-covered sofa and recliner, chic mirrored pieces and vintage chandelier are lovely, and then of course, there’s that view from the study . . .
