This sleek and contemporary apartment is in the authentic 15th arrondissement is perfectly set up for a great family stay. It sleeps up to 4. The open plan living space with the sofa and dining table makes family living easy, while the split-level arrangement means parents get the downstairs floor to themselves in the evening. The 15th arrondissement is home to many Michelin-starred restaurants for an indulgent parents night out, and Musée Bourdelle that is a rare surviving example of a 19th-century sculptor's studio. For those who need to work while away, there’s a dedicated workspace in the main living space. The communal courtyard is a lovely outside space to open a bottle of rose when the kids are in bed and soak up the city of light.

Style Notes

Cozy, contemporary, chic. In a historic period building, this 2-level apartment has modern interiors with clean lines and creative use of colors. The living room is inviting and stylish with petrol blue walls adorned with artworks and exposed brickwork as a nod to the apartment’s heritage. This space thoughtfully doubles as a small home office, blending practicality seamlessly with the overall design. The kitchen’s sophisticated and luxurious turquoise and sultry dark hues make it a great place for culinary adventures. We love the stylish bathroom with its monochrome décor and wood-topped ceramic wash basin; the vibrant rug in the living room, and the bijou courtyard that provides the perfect spot to unwind in the heart of Paris.
