Description(Reference number: 78746)
In a pleasing example of form following function, the ancient stone and brick walls in this central Paris apartment don't just add a welcome touch of rustic charm, but they also work exceedingly well in insulating the space and keeping it toasty during the winter months. That would give you some idea as to why they were retained in the recent renovation. Elsewhere, you can quickly spot a playful attitude to patterns and textures, whether it's the geometric table in the thoroughly modern kitchen, the intricate tiling in one of the bedrooms or the bumpy mirror frame in the living room, which helps reflect the bountiful amounts of natural light that comes in through the tall windows. Open them and let the sounds of street life float on up, which should get you in the mood to take to the streets of the French capital and explore. The local neighbourhood has a wealth of art galleries — including Musée des Arts et Métiers only three minutes' walk away — while Les Grands Boulevards can be reached at the top of your street.
