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.
