I love these images taken by Paul Raeside, capturing glimpses of beautifully styled corners in this pared-back Parisian interior. Off-white and shades of grey provide the back-drop to the wonderfully light interior; window treatments are simple lengths of sheer (very on-trend for 2014, says the Wall Street Journal). It is the objects and their placement that provide the detail and texture.
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.
