Majestic monochrome is washed with warm purple in the master bedroom, where chrome lamps angled from designer bedside tables light the scene. A built-in wall of bookshelves frames a host of late-night plot possibilities, and from here you can pass beyond clouded glass to the ensuite bathroom, its waterfall shower and aquamarine walls providing maximum saturation. Beyond the threshold are the lively streets of Opéra – indeed, you can see the magnificent Opéra Garnier through the home's elegant windows. The shops of Galeries Lafayette are close by too, while the epicurean head to Le Gavroche for French fare.
Working in post-production and as a colour technician, your hosts' romance is a match made in the movies. Their sitting room moonlights as a high art picture house, a testament to their shared enthusiasm for film.
In the kitchen the story is shot with more shades of silver and grey. The glassy black fittings reflect brushed steel surfaces, and there’s enough space to cater for your whole cast. This home’s canvas is an artwork in itself, from the original 19th-century exposed beams to the free-standing staircase with its industrial rope balusters bolted to the bannister. And below the line of the stairs you’ll find a secret nook, adorned with a coffee table and art books – from here the world might seem to dissolve away.
The ceilings are low in the upstairs bedroom.
There is no hanging space in the upstair bedroom, so we will set up a collapsible hanging rail, down the stairs for your stay.
There is a bath in the upstair bedroom but it is not a bathroom.
Your host enjoys the occasional cigarette inside, so sensitive guests may detect a slight aroma.
Your host has a cat, whilst it won't be there during your stay, allergy sufferers should be made aware.
Please be aware that you can't completely block the light in the third bedroom as the curtains are not blackout curtains.
