About Haussmannian Apartment
Our clients contacted us following a recommendation and had just acquired a Haussmannian apartment near the Parc Monceau. As they entered the premises, they saw its incredible potential – the neighborhood, the luminosity and the volumes all spoke to the history of the place. The classic layout of the apartment, however, needed to be revised. The kitchen was located at the end of a long corridor, not very practical in today’s world.
Interior designer Stéphanie proposed moving the kitchen to a room adjoining the entrance and the living room, making circulation more fluid. Glass doors would let in light and create a real communication with the classic style. The former kitchen, with its atypical volumes, became the teenager’s bedroom, with its own bathroom.
Living Room Expansion
The living room was enlarged by removing a partition, creating an open, generous space perfect for family life.
The project also included numerous storage units in each bedroom, the entrance hall, the hallway, and a laundry area in the spacious toilets in the hallway.
Stéphanie recommended noble materials for the coverings, in keeping with the standing of the place. Natural stones and massive woods would seduce our clients.
A magnificent work by Mr. Brainwash, combined with design sofas, took a place of pride in the living room, while the bookcase and sideboards on either side of the fireplace were custom made to fit discreetly into the composition. The immaculate matte lacquer of the kitchen was enhanced by the subtle veining of the stone. The storage units in the entrance and hallway were perfectly integrated, with the woodwork of the baseboards extended on the cupboard doors. Finally, a street artist’s fresco added a touch of classic harmony to the hallway.
This project was designed in detail in conjunction with our clients, who were thrilled with the results.
