Classic Paris Apartment

Play up warm wood tones with a light ceiling, neutral paint or wallpaper and soft lighting.

Don't cover up classic hardwood if you want to channel a traditional and formal style — herringbone is far too beautiful to lay a rug over. In Patrick Frey's Paris apartment, luxe fabrics and wallcoverings, a unique light fixture and classic chairs exude old-world charm.
