That's it, I'm moving house!
I love, love the warmth, the softness, the sensuality, the chicness, the details, the cool of this apartment belonging to Architect Joseph Dirand and his family, in Paris.
For one, the veined marble in the kitchen (hello!), the herringbone floor as well, the beautiful marble surround on the fireplace, the muted grey walls and bedding that look like he consulted with a recent Celine runway... I mean really... It's just too gorgeous!
There is a casualness and easy elegance that is mirrored in the finishes (the muted palette for example); a classicism and structure in the details (bronze doorknobs and replicated 17th century molding), and a cool and modern way of living that is in keeping with a celebrated designer of today.

For me, it's a cool home with classic bones and stylish touches in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
