This Parisian Pied-À-Terre Will Make You Want to Move

Parisian Pied-à-terre by Studio Razavi Architecture • on @SavvyHome

Some décors are so perfect, they feel like they could be immortalized in time and never feel out of date. Such is the case with this Parisian pied-à-terre, which somehow successfully managed to blend stark modernism with classicism, and a sleek city edge with a coastal appeal. In this Haussmannian apartment, neoclassical and Greek influences offset the clean lines of the monochromatic furniture. Studio Razavi, who worked on the renovation, was determined to meticulously bring the apartment back to its former glory—all while firmly planting it in the present. Sylvie Acker chose the furnishings.

To call a 2,400 sq. ft. apartment a “pied-à-terre” (literally translated as ‘foot on the ground’, in other words, a small apartment to use on occasion when in a particular city) seems wildly inaccurate—but such is the luxury of the few that collect Serge Mouille lighting, Beni Ourain carpets, and Jean Prouvé chairs with effortless ease. For the time being, the rest of us can continue to dream.

Gab Loves: Red, Red Wine

Gab Loves: Red, Red Wine

I don’t know if it’s the impending holidays, the cold weather, or my new burgundy manicure, but I’m loving the look of deep dark reds these days, especially when paired with light and dark grays, shades of pink, and warm wood tones. Something about this color palette feels very cozy like you’d just want to curl up by a fireplace and drink a bottle of red—which is exactly what I plan on doing as soon as Friday hits.

The Weekender: The Grind Before the Calm

Lucy Williams on @SavvyHome

They say the calm comes before the storm… But around here it feels more like the storm before the calm. There’s only two weeks left of work before a long well-deserved two weeks break—which means I’m cramming four weeks of work into two. But then, I’m off to sunny Florida for a whole 13 days! First in Palm Beach for Christmas, and then a little vacay from our vacay in Miami. To say I cannot wait is an understatement—I’ve been hawking Art Basel attendees on Instagram for their best Miami recommendations and there are some great new spots to check out! In the meantime, we’re deep in the grind at the office, but I decided to break up my last two weeks with an ultra relaxing weekend in the Hudson Valley next weekend. “Work hard, play hard” is my motto this month to get through end of year. What’s yours?

Gab Loves: Cozy Neutrals

Gab Loves: Cozy Neutrals

There’s something so chic about good cozy neutrals—a cashmere scarf, knit turtleneck or a wool coat. Every winter, I revert back to black (my neutral of choice), but sometimes I want to branch out—camels, grays, ash tones. Now that Black Friday is right around the corner, I’m adding all of these to my cart—the sneakers and coat in particular—and adding the wireless headphones to my Christmas wish list. What’s on yours?
