Description

Finished symphony

Walter Pater said that all great art aspires to the conditions of music, and Rue Auguste Vacquerie aspires to be – nay, achieves – a delicate symphony. This redesign of what was once maids’ quarters puts deep notes in the black floors and simple movements of red in the kitchen. And there are glimpses of the broader orchestra of Parisian architecture through the grand windows: the Arc de Triomphe on one side, the Eiffel Tower on the other. The harmony of it all, though, is best enjoyed from the resonant browns of the sitting room’s velvet corner sofa, under exposed beams and a major skylight.

The conductors

Tired of the relentless routine of metro-boulot-dodo, your hosts struck out on their own, and a streak of independence runs through the apartment. She plays the piano, he the guitar and together they enjoy a duet of interests: photography and travel.



City-wide crescendo

Tuck up next to the cosy fireplace after a day at the centre of things, or dash out in the twilight and explore the dozen Hausmannian avenues that radiate from the Arc de Triomphe past your doorstep.

When you return to your base clef (or do we mean ‘bass’?), relive your day of adventure and explore this home’s chorus of pleasing quirks: the angular bath, the harmonious arrangement of a gym and a library. And when your day reaches its coda, you’ve a choice of two bedrooms within which to take your bow.
