A Modern Home in Paris....(Via Made By Girl)

How amazing is this modern pad in Paris?? I'm really loving the DARK hardwood floors combined with white interior walls (my absolute favorite look)....sorry, I'm JUST not into colored walls anymore! Wallpaper however... I will do! 

Placing LARGE scale ART on white walls makes the white not seem so stark. The ARTWORK or PHOTOGRAPH seems to pop even more when placed on a white background...of course, that's my opinion.

Oh....to live in a place like this in Paris, what a dream!!

The design is by French designer Vincent Parreira (who I'm looking forward to seeing more of) and it's an eighteenth century home converted into a modern masterpiece.

  2. I love that floor. It's amazing! Also like the plum egg chair. That is a fabulous color.

  3. Beautiful space. I love white walls (hence my home/all white walls because I haven't had time to paint them). However, I think it is not the easiest thing to make a room look cohesive when there's white in the background. If you have furniture in lots of different colors, the space may look cluttered (e.g.: my living room :-) The images you posted though, are amazing. Great, great look.

  11. Those floors! Perfection- and so practical since the dust and dirt wouldn't show much with their variation in color.

  13. I find that most in Europe don't paint the walls in colour. I have an apartment across the pond & all the walls are white, completely different style than my house here. And for some reason it suits the style of architecture. My house here with the lighting wouldn't look so nice in white walls.

  14. You can never go wrong with white and I personally love the old worn floors and the beams on the ceiling. This home has definitely delivered! Great style!

  16. I like the beams painted white. I see so many photos of apartments in Paris that have the dark, wooden beams. I think this makes the space more Parisian.

  17. This is a great example of the beauty when juxtaposing contrasting elements: what is more beautiful than an old home filled with modern, chic pieces. It creates the perfectly balanced eclectic space. Thanks for sharing.

  19. I'm thinking this is the home of someone hugely wealthy...
    Most Paris apparts are small to tiny. This is loft-like and not at all the usual going thing.
    The French do love ultra modern but usually warmed up with something else or at least essential Haussmann architectural details.
    This looks so LA-NYC to me...

  20. This is an amazing home. I wish I could take those floors with me.
