Home Tour: Eclectic + Colorful Paris Apartment

April 17, 2015

Can we just talk about this very fabulous living room and kitchen for a moment because it made me very happy when I spotted it right before nearly logging off for the night. Damn the internet, always distracting me! But this is just SO GOOD. You can see more over here. Wow. Lots of white punctuated with great color and hello, that glittery eyelash photo, amazing octopus-like ceiling light and jaw-droppingly awesome sofa – c’mon! This is the stuff of dreams!

Now let’s talk about this subway tile, seating, mirrored-table and the floors! Oh the floors! Any of this doing it for you too? I love the use of purple and yellow in this home with lots of gray. Very cool.

Such a great bedroom, looks like it’s in Australia not Paris, right? I adore the pops of pink on the bed. Some people make using color so effortless don’t they? Gorgeous editing in this place.

What do you like about this swank pad? For me, it’s the use of color. And yes, I am unapologetically STILL a lover of a fresh, white base. I was reading a new design book last week where the designer really came out against white homes like this one above and said white is totally boring and I couldn’t help but think it’s such a personality thing. I could never go dark and bold, deep and moody or hunter’s lodge-y or even anything remotely like that. My personality just would clash and dark walls wouldn’t inspire me AT ALL. I love them in a hotel room or where I’m temporarily cocooning, but not in my living space.

Color is so psychological and while some people like their colors light, others love over the top and bold and still others, moody and dark. I will never apologize for liking what I like and I don’t care what any designer or anyone else says is cool or “the way” to decorate. What’s cool in my opinion is to follow your own instinct and rock your home with what speaks to you – color, some color, no color, dark color – it’s your home, so it’s your choice right?

Oh this apartment is so sweet and the fact that is sits directly in Paris definitely makes it even more appealing… Imagine rolling out of bed in the morning and onto the streets of Paris?

To quote Megan Draper, “Zou Bisou Bisou!”.

See you Monday everyone.

    Oh my- that couch! Is the favourite thing for me! The colour and the decadence!

    I’ve always loved lots of white. It’s fresh, clean, and makes me feel happy. Love these pics, especially the bedroom–the framed photo on the wall is wonderful!

    this is a beautiful space – clean, fresh, colourful- that is completely inviting. I could see myself enjoying a Parisian cafe-au-lait in luxury there!

    Love everything about this apartment too. The sofa is to die for and so very grown up. I’m always one for white walls too, for me it’s the perfect canvas to add colour and texture to. M x

    wow, I love this space. A pop of colour here and there, the choice of furniture and the style. Love it all. It really shows the personality. So many people are afraid of bold colours or are not confident in using it. This is a perfect example of when you go for it the reward is unbeatable!
