An Eclectic Paris Apartment

Design & Décor

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.

When designing the perfect apartment for her family, Paris based Interior Designer Sandra Behaumou created an informal environment while beautifully blending art with contemporary design based on what she saw during her 3d video tours St. Louis.  Behaumou spends her time at Saint-Ouen Flea, Flea Design and many auctions, where she purchased many of iconic pieces in her home.  Although filled with bright colors and busy patterns, each room is filled with relaxed neutral fabrics, white walls and natural wood.  Notice the lack of beautiful molding?  Although it is one of my favorite details in Parisian apartments.

Velvet Chesterfield sofa, Georges Smith, and Paved with Good Intentions (2005), Ron Arad, acquired at Galerie Downtown. On the right, the picture in ink and airbrush on paper is the work of Jim Shaw (2006).

While I always love a Chesterfield sofa, it’s the kitchen tile flooring and La Cornue range that I favor most.
