When I think about Parisian apartments, period charm immediately comes to mind. A kind of grandeur so foreign to that of which I am accustomed to. Exteriors boasting importance and abundance and ostentatious prowess. Interiors full of character and cloaked with palatial constructions. So dissimilar to the suburban brick veneers of the 1960's and 70's that trail Australian streets. Not that I don't have an appreciation for those retro clad abodes, but there's something utterly enthralling about such contrasting bewitchment. 

The apartment of interior designers Charlotte de Tonnac and Hugo Sauzay, is tantamount to my Parisian dreaming. Parquetry flooring, elongated mullion windows and doors and white walls adorned in aged moulding and cornices. Not to forget the enviable accessory collection consisting of desirable titled books and framed photography. A triumphant mix of fluid and denseness, wood and hardware, mature and bygone.

  1. It's the windows I love the most! We are house hunting and I want a place that has better windows than what we have here, it gets so dark so quickly when the sun moves around. Natural light is the best :) Really changes the fell of a house when you have lots of windows and light coming in I find! :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean Mica. I feel like I've live in dark houses all my life. I've stopped my search because prices are too ridiculous now and not worth it but prior natural light was always my main focus in looking for a place. It's so essential because it really does change the dynamic and feel of a space. xx

  5. I LOVE these photos. I agree that they're perfectly designed. I love how Parisian apartments can be small but the high ceilings make everything better. Love the gold accents too.

  11. I especially love the victorian details on the walls and doors, but also how it combines with the modern somewhat masculine furniture!

  22. I'm just so enamoured with the aesthetic of this place. This is exactly what I also think of when dreaming of a Parisian home. I've only visited one apartment in Paris when we were there, and it did not look like this at all!

  36. This is really interesting, Sonia. When I think of Parisian apartments, I think of those really traditional and old-school kind. Not at all like this white spacious, airy, modern and minimalistic ones you featured here. Now my sealed image has taken a shift. I'm glad to always stumble upon new knowledge. My vocabulary is really bad. I had to google many of the words you used here especially those related to architecture.

You're absolutely right with regard to Parisian design boasting important (and at times even opulence), there's something unapologetically special about it :) Thanks for sharing these stylish photos, my mind is all over the place now with interior design daydreams haha!
