House Crush: An Apartment Rue de Seine

In terms of Parisian holiday rentals, I don’t think one could possibly ask for more. In fact, in terms of any apartment, anywhere, for any purpose, it’s pretty hard to beat. This 3 bedroom apartment in Paris is essentially perfection. Let me count the ways in which I am in love with this place.

1. The moldings, floors, windows, marble fireplace, yellow sofa, gorgeous floor lamp.

2. More of the same mixed with gorgeous antiques and delightful industrial pendants…

3. The sweetest monochrome kitchen in the most beautiful shade of blue…

4. A high gloss study that packs a punch!

5.  …With adjacent powder room

6. A stunning entrance with more of the same gorgeous floors…

7. More antiques…

8. Bathroom galore. The tiles, window seat, fittings, everything!

9. Cute bedroom with AMPLE storage…

10. Windows at both ends AND an ensuite.

11. More delicious Moroccan tiles and a claw bath!

12. What I’m pretty sure is the cutest courtyard in Paris.

Are you convinced? I am. Someone please book me a short stay there. Pretty please.

    This rental would be a dream! I agree with you- absolute perfection. I love the terrace!



    • Gabrielle Savoie

      We should organise a blogger meetup in that place. That terrace would make a great backdrop for some fun design-driven conversations and a few cocktails 🙂


    I love that study!

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      The study’s a definite favorite! It’s so bold and beautiful! 🙂

  • Traci

    the powder room in the study is my favorite!

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      Isn’t it just delightful? I love that blue with the gold, white and yellow!

  • Gaby [The Vault Files]

    The bedroom reminds me of my room back in Kuala Lumpur, we had the same configuration with a little bit more of closet space, yes I was in heaven! 😉

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      Lucky!! It’s such a great layout! How did you like living in KL? I was only ever there on layovers… X

  • Jo G – Musings and Delights

    Wow, what a lovely place! I especially love the blue study, I love how people can be so daring with colour.

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      Isn’t it lovely? Like I said to Erika below, I think I could commit to one colourful room – like a powder room or an office… Just not an entire house! Makes for less repainting if you ever tire of it…

  • Jenna at Homeslice

    I’m not sure how I feel about the powder room doors being glass, but everything else about the space is amazing. Love all the intense colors!

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      Hahaha yes it would make for some slight uneasiness… But since it’s technically in a bedroom (see floor plan on the rental website) I guess it would be OK for a single guest or a very comfortable couple?? At least it’s not in the living room! AWK!

    • Ashley Maddox

      You’ll get a kick out of the fact that the glass doors were snagged from the kitchen, which we opened up to the Salon. And never fear, we now have white linen over both doors to the powder room…

  • Erika [small shop]

    I want that living room floor lamp! Such a cool house all around. Those walls!

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      I know I love that lamp! Such a great feature piece! I don’t think there is anything in that house I don’t love… I do love the idea of lacquering walls in only one room… Let’s call it restrained commitment…

  • victoria | vmac+cheese

    Here’s an idea. Let’s contact the owners and find when they’ll be away on holiday. We can go housesit for them together!

    • Gabrielle Savoie

      Brilliant idea!! Except it’s already a holiday rental so technically we don’t have to wait for owners to leave… we just need to plan and pay up!! (I’m sure it’s not cheap…)

    What a very pretty lovely apartment, I simply love those lighting fixtures in your living room.

  • rebeccamiller345

    I love how each room seems to exude a personality all its own. I decorated my apartment for rent in Makati with a French countryside theme. It doesn’t come close to this, though!

    Some of my friend who are conveyancers in Brisbane has a savvy
    kitchen too. That monochrome kitchen in the shade of blue looks exquisite but
    it would be great if you could provide a top view of it.
