There is one thing that i dream about A LOT and that is owning an apartment in Paris; probably not the most practical investment but there is just something about those old gems that conjure up idyllic images of romance, food and shopping;)
I spotted this one on www.architecturaldigest.com; initially it was the turquoise living room that caught my eye (dammit i wish i was brave enough to go for such a bold colour!) but then it was the mix of old and new that the Parisians seem to nail that i loved.
The apartment is in the E’lysee’ Palace district (Presidential office down the road) and is owned by Stefano Pilati who is the Creative Director of Zegna (he previously was a designer at YSL under legendary Tom Ford). He recently renovated the Duplex apartment with Parisian architect Bruno Caron.
