Majestic Parisian Apartment

It’s hard not to feel jealous of people who live in Paris. The culture-rich city is packed with amazing fashion, art and architecture. Did I mention the architecture? The last time I was in Paris, it was a bitterly cold, unusually snowy December. I was staying in a cheap-as-beans hostel in a less-than-luxe corner of town. But even still, the city was luminous because of its incredible buildings (not to mention its squares, streets and parks). There’s just a sense of style there which is impossible to suppress. Anyway, I’m already doubly jealous of whoever ends up buying this 3,700-square-foot, five-bedroom condo. It’s in an amazing part of the city — near Parc Monceau — and is filled with the kind of drama, elegance and opulence one could only dream of in a piece of prime Parisian real estate.

Beautiful herringbone floors start in the palatial foyer and run throughout the condo. Intricately detailed walls and marble accents create a sense of grandeur.

The regal salon is massive but well proportioned so it still feels comfortable.

The dining room is my favourite space in the house. It’s undeniably formal, but the tropical-themed wallpaper creates a relaxed warmth.

The full-height drapes around the french doors create a sense of drama in the principal bedroom.
