Blending flair with frivolity, and irreverence with attention to detail, Rue Bonaparte II is certainly masterful. Lithographs and fabrics are bright with pigment, while a statement wall is shaded with a luscious leafy print. Framing the fun are the pockmarked beams uncovered by your host, their honeyed knots centuries old. While the streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés are busy with the pastel delicacies of Ladurée, the refined tailoring of the first Chanel, and the aromas of Les Deux Magots. Stretch your legs in the Jardin du Luxembourg, or experience the bucolic from home – the living area’s walls hold a patchwork bull’s head.
Your host is an energetic entrepreneur who’s about to launch a restaurant in London. He’s lived in Switzerland, Singapore and the USA, and spends his spare time scouring the stalls at the Porte de Clignancourt market.
The sitting room zips with mustard-yellow and turquoise, bright against knotted beams and the dark-wood floor. And ample flea market visits have yielded the fascinating furnishings here, many of them Scandinavian.
Browse the walls’ art – there are works by Lichtenstein and Daniel Buren – or take a book and wander into the study. And for the communal areas’ vibrancy, the bedroom’s an understated masterpiece, with textured walls, glints of silver, and the distant chime of church bells to lull you to sleep.
