On the beam
Set on an ancient boulevard in Temple, it’s no surprise Rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin’s building is historic. In the welcoming sitting room, wooden floorboards give rise to draped windows, and dark wooden beams run along the ceiling. Workshop-style windows separate the pretty nursery from the main living space, its sweet animal prints contrasting the sitting room’s bolder artworks. And in this sociably open-plan home there’s a lambskin-lined rocking chair too, near the stack of glossy magazines your hosts collect.
Your hosts are a Parisian design entrepreneur and a Marseille-born communications expert. They carefully restored their elegant home together, and now live here with their young son.
To the rafters
In the master bedroom, double windows open onto a delicate Juliet balcony. There are thoughtful details here – a harlequin mask, angular lampstand and carved wooden mirror all embellish this sophisticated space. The living area is just beyond: admire the Horst print that hangs on one wall, or head further to find the sleek kitchen. Exposed bricks and polished black surfaces are sleek, and stick-back chairs flank a painted dining table. The Canal Saint-Martin is close by for leisurely afternoon strolls, and there are plenty of restaurants and parks to explore too.
There are stairs up to the entrance, and no elevator.
There is a sofabed in the the sitting room which can be set for two. Please let us know when you book if you would like it prepared. We will also set up a collapsible wardrobe for your stay. Please note the living space will be limited if you choose to use the sofabed.
This home doesn't have air-conditioning, so ask us if you'd like to have fans for your stay.
