Let’s pay a visit to the gorgeous, airy Haussmannian apartments in the well-heeled areas of Paris now that their occupants are on holiday. I’ve been inspired by the elegant apartments shown in the film
The Woman from the Fifth (Arrondissement), I hasten to add, not the dodgy hotel in the peripherie.
This is the typical, very symmetrical and neutrally-coloured French apartment, but with a splash of colour. From Architectural Digest.
The flow from one room to another and the neutral walls go well with both classical and contemporary elements. From 1stDibs.com
This one even includes a view of the Eiffel Tower! From Architectural Digest.
The wooden parquet in chevron patterns are very characteristic for city apartments, from 10surdix.com
How’s this for a spectacular entrance hall and corridor? From 10surdix.com
The blue colour of the bookshelves and the large windows make this room irresistible, and they have a coffee table which looks rather similar to mine (who knew I was so stylish!) From cotemaison.fr
Ah, now that’s what I call a living room (or library)! From 1stdibs.com
But perhaps best of all is to have this blank canvas and just imagine all you could do with this gorgeous space and view! From Faraway Places.
