In a week where I’ve been longing for a trip to Paris – tweets from the front row of Paris Fashion Week haven’t helped – you can imagine my delight upon discovering this visually arresting Parisian apartment. Colour blocking. Fifties furniture. Herringbone floors. Hello, interiors heaven! Jean-Christophe Aumas’ space is created with a mix of muted neutrals, poppy brights and intriguing artworks.
The fireplace alone makes a dramatic statement in the main living space, but Jean-Christophe’s addition of theatrical-style lighting, pillar candles and the over sized glass dome vignette only adds to the mystical atmosphere. As for the painted logs, well, they were made for Mr. Bazaar, no?!
Each of these four snapshots demonstrates the excellent level of execution that the interior of this apartment delivers. A mirrored, brass sideboard gently tans the reflection of the herringbone floor as it dances off into the distance. The artwork, effortlessly placed upon it, echoes these decedent hues. Meanwhile, in the shower room, a block of sea green turns the most basic of shower fittings into a striking statement.
To me this is apartment is a lesson in how to use brights: make a statement of an otherwise straight forward feature, table legs and shower fittings for example, and then block out parts of a main wall to add your accent shade. Stick with calmer shades in the surrounding furniture and collections and you’ll be onto a winner. So, folks, if I disappear I think you’ll know where to look first…
