Inside a Chic Layered 19th Century Parisian Home

Inside a Chic Layered 19th Century Parisian Home ± on @SavvyHome

The apartment is layered with vintage Berber Moroccan rugs collected by Caroline Gayral, owner of Fragments in Paris—a shop known for its exquisite selection of preloved Beni Ourain Moroccan rugs. Over the restored 19th Century parquet, the colorful carpets add a worldly flair to an otherwise perfectly European home: marble fireplace, modern heirlooms, family antiques, and a discerning art collection.

It was after her daughter’s birth that Gayral and her husband transformed this period apartment into their family home, which may explain the touches of dusty pink throughout—offset by midcentury chairs in tan and burgundy leather, and touches of pitch black. The kitchen is a wonderful blend of muddy peach walls and glossy navy cabinets with patterned cement floors and glazed ceramic tiles. The bedroom is deceptively simple with only a Vertigo pendant lamp acting as a focal point showstopper. The result: a chic, layered Parisian home that’s not too feminine, but soft, family-friendly, and lived-in.

    I love these rooms because while I feel like I have been thrown back to the 19th century, i still have a sense of modern elements throughout the home. I recently used Furnishr to do my new apartment and I love the designs that kept my rooms modern, but with a little twist. If you can, check out their designs http://www.furnishr.com

    I love this home! I feel like this is a true representation of eclectic design. I never would have put these pieces together but they absolutely work!

    Love this design, comprising classic and modern stylings. Beautifully blended colours and a wonderful atmosphere. At Fernwood Interiors we try and use the same fundamentals with our fitouts. http://fernwoodinteriors.co.uk

    Incredible design! I really enjoy the eclectic modern design. I’m thinking of redesigning my master bedroom this year and this is definitely inspiring to try. I found a great furniture set, although the wood is a bit darker, I think it may work. what do you think?

    Very very beautiful design, it disbelieves that it house of the real people, but not personages from a romantic film!

    automotive window tint also looks good in any theme and design of home.

    I love the neutral and blush tones, they create a very romantic feeling. Also the modern lighting juxtaposed to the gilt framed artwork.

    The living room is so busy but it works so well. I really like this place, it’s got so much personality. I’m inspired!

    • Jenna Crotty

      I’m actually keeping things calm and neutral in my living room (you can see it on my blog http://www.homewarehuntress.com), but now that I see this, I’m thinking I might make it busier.

    I’m looking for a cool gift for my brothers housewarming party. He’s into like techy stuff and gadgets. We had this huge old school projector with slides (if anyone remembers those) when we were kids, so thought this would be pretty awesome and remind him of that (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/starsailor-live-brings-the-skies-into-your-bedroom-technology#/), but i’ve never bought anything from indiegogo, is it reliable and do you think it’s appropriate to give since they’ll have to wait to receive it? Anyone see something like this before?

    This post is gives me some inspiration, I would not usually use these peices togethr but they fit beautifully. I used furnishr.com to design my home. They helped me with designing the rooms and delivered and set up everything for all one cost. Saved me some time and money and the overall headache of moving into a new home.
