An ideal of beauty rules inside this home too – the gilt-framed artworks, oriental rugs and expanses of pearl-white marble are undeniably decadent. Here you might enjoy a lavish supper at the antique dining table, or retire to the sumptuous sitting room for coffee or a glass of fine wine. The aesthetes Your well-travelled hosts divide their time between Paris, London and Uruguay. He works in finance, and she spends her time expertly selecting antiques and artworks to perfectly suit her home. Desires fulfilled Rue de Chazelles speaks of a far less taxing era. With its well-arranged, restful bedrooms, two magnificent bathrooms and characterful kitchen, there’s potential for plenty of pastimes – whether lounging on the glimmering chaise longue, or people-watching beyond the coloured glass of the windows.
