Modern Revival Of A Classic Apartment
This updated 1860s apartment in the 7th arrondissement of Paris is meticulously revived to original glory, yet stays modern and current in its furnishings. Often times I talk about the importance of mixing classic with modern, this apartment is the perfect example of this. (ABOVE) The Living Room features classic French wall paneling. Gold leafing is quite common. Some of the modern features of the space include the wall sconces, sofa, armchair, tables and lamps. I love the classic hard wood flooring. (BELOW 1) The kitchen does not feature the signature French gold leafed wood paneling. The space features modern cabinetry and a bold red cabinet. (BELOW 2) The walls of the Dining Room are very detailed. I love the intricate raspberry tapestries on the walls. The ceiling light fixture is very modern and looks great in the space. (BELOW 3) The furnishings in the Dining Room are modern and bold. How great are the chairs? You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.
