Beautiful photographs, a beautiful home. Housed in an 1860s Haussmann building, the original shell has been retained – parquet floor, period mouldings – and given a wash of warm white. With high ceilings and a wealth of natural light, steel grey creates atmosphere and compliments the wood and white. Fabulous furniture pieces are placed rather than hung, against a wall here, or hanging from a door knob there. A blackboard-painted curved wall in the hallway invites guests to write and draw. Artwork in the children’s bedroom is in the form of a montage of photographs.
Beautifully shot by NY-dwelling Englishman, Paul Raeside, the photographs capture the spirit of the space and the family who live there.
