my scandinavian home: An opulent Paris apartment with minimalist style

An opulent Paris apartment with minimalist style

Monday, 31 October 2016

Hello Monday! I hope you had a great weekend? We're in London right now - and it feels soooo great to be home, even if only for a few days.  Recently I visited another beautiful European city which I hadn't been to in years - Paris. I loved the elegance, the architecture and the vibrant atmosphere. Sadly I didn't get to visit any beautiful homes this time round - but this stunning apartment on Rue Bonaparte, in the 6th arrondissement, was exactly how I'd imagined some of the spaces to look. The lovely apartment combines opulence with classical high ceilings and a beautiful parquet de Versailles floor. Beautiful?!

I think I could use this as a crash pad each time I nip over to Paris - how about you?! ;)

I spy: the Angel stool by Gry Holmskov and lovely stone-washed bed linen in rose.

You can take a full tour of this space here.

I've featured lots of fab French homes here before, all with very different looks including: an idyllic holiday home in the South of France, bohemian retreat in Marseille and a fabulous home in Fontainebleau (I went on a French exchange to Fontainebleau once when I was 14 - and the name brings back so many memories!).

Have a wonderful start to the week...

...à bientôt 

PS back Wednesday!


PPS Happy halloween! Looking forward to taking my girls and niece trick or treating later!

  1. my favorite elements are definitely the high ceilings, ceiling & wall moulding(!), and the parquet pattern...though mosts striking is how they seemlessly contrasted modern furniture pieces with the classic bones of the flat without it seeming forced or calculated at all...so lovely.

    p.s. what are your girls dressed up as tonight, Niki? i'm looking forward to sitting outside on the porch awaiting cute little costumed trick or treaters tonight :-)

    1. I agree, the blend is so clever! We had such a wonderful Halloween Salma, the girls went trick or treating as a couple of witches and a pumpkin (in the form of their one year old niece!). Did you see some cute trick or treaters?

    2. oh how lovely, and baby pumpkins are so cute, I come across a few on pinterest! I think I had more fun at Halloween than the trick 'or treaters themselves, haha. it's not such a big event around here -- many households don't participate, so it's a bit of a let down for the enthusiastic kiddies that do take part -- so we made a point of "advertising" our home by strategically placing the 5 pumpkins we handcarved earlier in the week along a path leading to our place(Hansel & Gretel style!) and we sat out in front of the house with a warm tea awaiting them. it was such a delight whenever someone found us. We had about 20 kiddies, in groups of roughly 4 come by, which is considered a huge success around these parts. We had adorable witches come by (though we only told them they were verrrrry scary, so as not to disappoint), vampires and a scattering of skeletons too :) our carved pumpkins were apparently a hit and so many of the parents turned our setup into a photo op for their little ones. so yes, i'd say, all in all a lovely Halloween was had by all :)

  2. I like the high ceilings, but I think it needs something more - maybe carpets or art work or something. It's missing something for me.

    1. It's very minimalist and definitely not for every taste. I personally love a few cosy rugs too.

    2. yes to the cozy rugs, and i definitely wouldn't be able to resist placing a few large green plants around the house...they give such an understated lively touch somehow

  4. Really love the variety of fresh cut flowers here. Last purchase were Iris stems and peonies and the arrangement lasted for a lot longer than I expected. There are also some pre-arranged options for Same Day Delivery Flowers which are also great.
