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

    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?

    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 (, 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 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.

  • Mai Thư Sử

  • KMP Furniture Blog

    The parquet goes oh-so-well with the fireplace and the antiques around. I’m inspired by the superb color palette. Great work.

  • Keisha –

    I love the simplistic and clean aesthetic of your website and decor. So perfect!

  • Anthony Ortiz

    Interesting article. I really liked this design of living rooms. Perfectly chosen primary colors. But I would use a smaller amount of interior elements. In combination with the white color of the walls, this will make living rooms visually larger, since the area of ​​the apartment is not very large. A few months ago I made repairs in my apartment. Specialists of the contractor’s company that I found on the website –, helped me to create a new design of my apartment. I chose white as the main color and used the minimum amount of furniture and decor elements. This allowed to increase the volume of the main rooms and make it lighter.
