Moving in to an empty white apartment in the heart of Paris, the plain style left this family longing for more. Eager to transform their home into an elegant space that reflects the rich culture of the city, they sought design help from Dariel Studio. What was once a stark white Paris apartment is now a vibrant abode, filled with eclectic style. Blending creativity and timelessness, every room features unique furniture pieces, custom-built to suit the family’s sophisticated taste.
Inspired by the vibrancy, culture, and history of Paris, the penthouse apartment is thoughtfully curated to evoke exaltation of the city. The blue walls are juxtaposed with a pastel hued Cubist-style rug, creating a visual trail that leads into the living area. The monochrome walls brilliantly conceal the doors in the hallway, while the copper-toned light bulbs and art piece are warm accents to the blue walls.
The mirror, designed by Federico Floriani, is an interesting interpretation of a shaman’s mask. Hung directly across from the enigmatic art piece, the mirror creates a dynamic exchange of warmth and texture through the reflection.
Straight from designer Thomas Dariel‘s own furniture line Maison Dada, the celadon-color console holds three playful containers that nod to the designer’s creative flair. Here, we see his attention to detail, with clean lines and complementary champagne colored accents.
While the family room retains the corridor’s blue tones, it is brighter due to the wide windows that bring in plenty of light. The open plan living and dining room is a mix of soft and hard edges, as well as muted and bold colors.
The dining table is also a custom piece designed by Dariel Studio, boasting a round wooden detail.
This dusty pink side table has to be one of my favorite pieces in the home. With its umbrella crane stand, the designer pays homage to the dandy atmosphere of the 1930s.
Even the ceiling lampz above the dining table seem to mimic musical notes, setting the room in constant motion.
Much like the room’s two-toned walls, the large wooden cabinet also displays two contrasting shades. The theme is consistent with the chairs, coffee table and sofa.
The kitchen, on the other hand, feature a more subdued color palette. The dark gray herringbone wooden floor harks back to the traditional Parisian style wooden floors, while the rest of the kitchen cupboards sport a modern oak and marble finish.
Every room features a unique design, and the bathroom is no exception. From the monochromatic corridor to the color blocked family room, the bathroom walls surprise you with an unexpected statement floral wallpaper.
