Parisian Chic at its Finest

Everyone is raving about the French apartment featured on the cover and inside the November 2013 issue of Elle Decor.  It’s the kind of apartment Americans dream of when they imagine moving to Paris. It was designed by a slightly new firm Champeau & Wilde but the founders Kelli Wilde and Laurent Champeau previously worked for Tino Zervudachi where they were clearly well trained. The pair reconfigured the entire space for the owners who often entertain but also kept many of the beautiful plaster moldings and herringbone floors. It’s filled with an enviable art collection too. I always think it’s interesting that foreign homes often have such sleek and contemporary kitchens and baths.  That’s maybe one thing I’d change if I ever did move to Paris.  You can read the entire story in Elle Decor or here

    Great apartment….and I actually do like a sleek kitchen and bathroom. Especially in combination with the rest of the apartment

    I think to them the incredible details, mouldings etc must seem almost quotidian as they are so fortunately often surrounded by this. So they like the sleek as something new. Vs where I am such details are like precious jewels. And then, as I remember you have said previously, often they can get away with the sleek looking less cold as they have the detail to balance it. Le sigh!
