This luxurious apartment in Saint-Germain des Près, decorated with an original and very safe taste, is ideally located for a pleasant stay in Paris. It is composed of a large main room with exposed beams, a separate kitchen, a separate toilet, and two double bedrooms each with its private bathroom.
When you enter the apartment, you find the kitchen in front and in a discreet corner; the toilet. Then, at the end, you reach the large living room - dining room. On the left are the two bedrooms.
The decoration of the kitchen is particularly neat. It is separated from the rest of the apartment by internal open windows. Its superb vintage furniture, with white doors and dark wood furniture, gives it a little retro look, confirmed by the lamp shade. Unusual, the portrait of a noble lady Tudor watches over the room and her solemnity contrasts with the original raw wooden stools that surround the small table, to which one may take convivial breakfasts.
The living room is spacious and breathes refinement. The beautiful honey-colored parquet combines with the exposed beams in mahogany colors.
In the dining room there is a pretty table and wooden chairs with a fine design, in the same colors as the exposed beams, and an unexpected light suspension with glass panels. A beautiful round lacquered dish decorates the wall.
In the living room of this luxurious apartment in Saint-Germain des Près, a thick carpet decorates the room, in which you can sit comfortably on large pleasant armchairs whose upholstery resembles the Barcelona chair by Mies van der Rohe.
Close to the window, a small bookshelf lacquered in black on the outside, but natural wood on the inside cultivates a Bauhaus style. On each side of the sofa, the tray servings create an interesting symmetry.
Here and there, above the sofa or in the double room on the end, colorful and stylized birds have come to rest in pictures with flowers and branches. The floral motifs of the cushions in the living-room, Indian canvas, echo them on the armchairs.
The walls of the first room, facing the kitchen, are left white to better accommodate the purple and red tones of the curtains and cushions, and to put to their advantage two small oval mirrors whose dark wooden frame is surmounted by a carved knot. Above the bed, an art reproduction recalls the style of Claude Viallat. Night tables in logs add a nice rustic touch. At the end of the room, the pleasant bathroom has red orange accents.
In the second bedroom, there is the same soothing white, but here the colors are deeper, because the bedroom also has its exposed beams. The double glazing in a box window promises calm. The desk-hairdresser, in a mid-20th century design, contrasts with the round antique pedestals which serve as night tables and on which are placed two lamps in silver bases. The en-suite bathroom, white with ocher accents, has a bathtub, as in the first bedroom.
