An Apartment in Paris

We can all stop searching, I’ve found the nicest apartment in Paris. Quite the bold statement, I know, but of all the apartments in Paris I’ve posted over the years, this one is by far my favorite. It doesn’t even have views of the Eiffel Tower, or a wrap around balcony overlooking the Seine, and it’s not even located in an arrondissement I’d consider in my top five. But! But out of all of those apartments, this one is the nicest I’ve ever seen. Something about it –the muted tones, the collection of plants, the blue bathroom door, the intentionally peeling wall in the bedroom– just speaks to me on an entirely different register. It feels the most authentically Parisian, despite its lack of classically Parisian views. This apartment is all about the interior, and it is like something out of a dream. I know, I know: there is no geographical cure for unhappiness, but tell me you wouldn’t feel instantly perked waking up in that bed? At a cool €735,000 ($800k), it better come furnished, especially because I don’t think I’d ever be able to decorate it better than the current owners have. Mon dieu.


I want to thank you each so much for your kind words of support on this post, kiddos. You can’t know how much it means to me to have such a rallying group in my corner. Thank you for letting me vent honestly, too; I know blogs are “supposed” to be light and cheery all time, but that would be disingenuous. The fog is starting to thin out a bit for me, and I feel buoyed by your thoughtfulness. Merci beaucoup, mes amies.

  • Although I am not a huge fan of the intentionally peeling wall, I must admit I wouldn’t mind living in there! Loving the bedroom and living room. :)

  • I love how homey it feels, and those floors are amazeballs!

  • hmmm…. love the wall treatment in the bedroom!!!

  • there’s so much i love about this space: the cement floors that meet weathered hard wood, the exposed beams and structures, the floor-to-ceiling windows, and above all the natural light. for me, it’s always all about the interior. we spend so much time inside our houses! but i do not discredit a lovely garden or a wrap-around porch either. ;)

  • It looks so delightfully livable too – esp that kitchen. Let us know when you move in and we’ll all go visit. Blogger meetup 2015! :)

  • I love the balance between vintage and modern. It is indeed a beautiful apartment. I even like the intentionally peeling wall. My only complain is those uncovered wooden beams in the bedroom. Either they need to be better exposed or painted over, je pense.

  • I love the bedroom, the windows and the floors. Parisians really love a splash of red huh?

  • Je crois que je pourrais habite dans cet appart sans problème! Love it!

  • those floors have me mesmerized. the texture of the wood, the movement of the design, the concrete right next to it – heaven!

  • Did anyone notice that in the second picture on the shelf there seems to be bottle of Makers Mark?
    Not the best bourbon in the world but it is my fallback if I can’t do better.
