Haussmanian-Style Apartment Living Room

Detailed interior doors, mouldings and hardware enhance the classic French look.

A vintage 1940s carpet provided a starting point for the unique bottle green and aubergine colour scheme. Floor-to-ceiling silk drapes feature turquoise pleats inset at each end. Postcard-like views and the building's architecture charmed Patrick Frey and his wife Lorraine into moving into this French apartment.
