Chic Parisian Apartment

September 18, 2020

 

 

Last year we spent a week in a chic Parisian apartment. I wanted to share this beautiful space with you since it’s just as stylish as the rest of the city.

After spending the day seeing the sights, we’d return to the apartment and collapse onto this comfortable leather couch. I loved the green accents in the living along with that vintage chair in the foreground.

On the other side of the living room, the custom cabinets followed the architectural curve of the building. The simple decor against the walnut paneling emphasized the mid-century vibe of the room.

Want a budget-friendly travel hack? Stay in a place with a kitchen. You can grab some groceries from the local market and save money by preparing your own meals. Most days we ate a simple French breakfast at home (toast, butter, and jam!) and then we made sandwiches to eat when we were out and about.

Another plus is that Kitchens usually include a coffee and tea situation so you are sorted for your morning caffeine. Absolutely necessary when you are battling jet lag!

Now can we talk about this guest bathroom?! It’s so incredibly tiny but really packs an interior design punch. The statement lamp, the modern art, THE GOLD MIRROR.

Speaking of the gold mirror, it deserves a closeup. The color, shape, and angles are all so unique.

My friend always says that the French do color well. She’s right! I’m usually into neutrals but fell hard for this dusty pink with it’s lilac edge.

The designer was smart to paint the built-ins the same color as the wall. It made the desk nook look streamlined and intentional. The cabinets also provide storage, something that’s usually lacking in Parisian apartments!

Since this is the guest room, there was a modern sofa bed opposite of the desk set-up. it was a great place to lounge and read a book during the day, and then turned into a surprisingly comfy bed at night.

Now the grand finale! Feast your eyes on this serene, minimalist master bedroom. The light teal color is so calm and soothing, and who would have known that you can pair it with rust and purple linen pillows? More evidence of great color choices made in France.

Gold accents elevate the room by adding a bit of flair while also calling back to some of the other golden accents present in other rooms. That golden palm tree also doubles as a lamp and gives off the sexiest light. Oh la la!

The real hero of the master bedroom was the walk-in closet, even better that our stylish friend had it fitted out with all the cutest vintage, high-street, and designer pieces!

Unfortunately I didn’t get a great picture of the closet so I’ll leave your with this last shot of the master bathroom. Another example of simple and understated room that features a golden flair (that vase!).

That completes our tour! This chic Parisian apartment was the perfect place for such a stylish getaway. I hope we can make it back one day soon.
