I’m off to a busy day of meetings and appointments but I couldn’t leave without posting these gorgeous photos of American-born and now Singapore based interior designer Christopher Noto‘s Parisian pied-à-terre. I came across this apartment in the January or Gennaio 2010 issue of Italian AD which is entirely devoted to Paris and is definitely worth paying $15.95 to peruse! A little research unearthed that it was also shot for the American issue of AD so if you’re Italian is a little rusty, you can read more about it here. I love all the Asian details that work perfectly with the French architecture. It’s definitely a dream apartment! Enjoy!

    oh I want to get a copy of Italian AD now I know it’s entirely devoted to Paris – I’ll have to search, as I’ve only seen the American AD here in Australia – have a great weekend 🙂

    This Parisian apartment seems to reflect the experience of its owner. The blend of asian, parisian and american makes it interesting and gives it personality. What an interesting mix!!

    Gorgeous neutral tones ~~

    There are so many exquisite apartments and homes in the world … and I do love looking at them.

    But this is one of those rare instances when I could happily leave everything in my life behind and unpack my suitcase and be right at home. Everything – everything – is my taste. And it’s in my favorite city in the world!

    I had planned on staying snugly tucked in during this eastern coast blizzard – but, now I have to go to the only shop in the city where I can buy an Italin AG!

    Gorgeous! Wow, the neutral color scheme, and that fireplace mantle. Loving it all.

    Everything is amazingly beautiful–have to get the magazine. thanks. Mary

    Stunning…I especially love the cool luxuriuos grey touches. Singapore has some amazing designers, I have seen some unbelievable interiors published in magazine there.

  21. Jessica Claire February 6, 2010 | 4:48 pm

    that paneling is seriously gorg – and the colours! I would love to know which paint colours were used for that perfect grmouse grey and soft blue!

    I ripped out this apartment for my tear sheets. While it is uber-traditional, and I am mid-century, I loved the walls, and the molding. Just beautiful!

  23. Kim February 7, 2010 | 1:12 am

    French meets oriental – unexpected yet amazingly beautiful! I heart it!!

  24. Kathysue February 7, 2010 | 10:18 pm

    Wow! What an elegant ,beautifully appointed home. I love the colors and all of the opulence. Yet it still feels very liveable. The mouldings and architecture are wonderful and then I see a balcony with a black and white striped awning. I just posted awnings as a want on my Someday list a few days ago on my blog. Love all of the images, thankyou for sharing. Kathysue

    This house is beyond gorgeous! LOVE IT!!!!

    I agree. Truly beautiful, and not overly styled in any one theme or other. The neutral palette really assists with this too.

    a beautiful palette of neutrals with a just a taste of color. the designer finished this apartment with every detail in mind.
