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Some décors are so perfect, they feel like they could be immortalized in time and never feel out of date.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.

    So inspiring and creative! I love every detail in your home with a look of vintage. I actually wanted more of a bright and neutral look in my home with some nice decorations to give it some excitement. I eventually went to furnishr.com and when I ordered some of their items there, they were able to put everything in my home without me having to set it all up! This definitely saved me a lot of time.

    I am obsessed with this place! Serious home goals, I love the mix of vintage and modern and how open and bright the space is. I too used Furnishr.com recently and I have to agree, they were able to nail the modern/clean look I was going for while saving me time AND money!
