Joie de vivre
Rue du Charolais is the perfect place to become enraptured by the 12th arrondissement’s palpable joie de vivre. At the pulsing heart of Bercy, this home embodies the colour and creativity of the neighbourhood, with a delightful sense of playfulness splashed across furniture and room alike. You’ll repose in satisfaction at the glass-topped Corbusier table, on the pastel Starck chairs, while spotting the various homages to neighbouring design icons, like Gehry’s Cinémathèque Française, pyramidal Palais Omnisports and Pierre Colboc’s Le Jardin de Reuilly.
Your hosts are a creative couple who were among the first to settle in the apartment block. Her creative leanings, as a former manager of art and engineering schools, and his IT background, helped to inform the home’s distinctive design.
Your inner child will grin with glee at the riot of colour in the living room that playfully blends a green, wicker three-piece sofa with a quirky cactus coat stand and a top-of-the-world balcony – ripe for rainbow spotting.
A mint and chrome kitchen is a gregarious space, while the three en suite bedrooms are sure to lighten proceedings with a joyous blend of polished parquet, colourful modern art and the pleasing nuances of contemporary furniture. And should you need more space to indulge your chromophilia, a terrace populated with verdant greenery awaits.
