Fable and fantasy On the fifth and top floor of a typically Parisian building in Saint-Germain-des-Prés (picture a charming stone façade with ornate Juliet balconies), Rue Péguy is full with stories. Books fill every room, collected by your literary host and stacked on shelves, ladders – even a nook behind the bathtub. As you enter the front hall, you’ll find a bright bedroom to your left with a built-in desk and floral bed frame. One door down, a sitting room is piled high with paintings, sculptures and patterned rugs. The François Bauchet-designed kitchen is straight ahead, where colour-blocked panels and geometric tiles make a bold statement beside eclectic chairs. Next to the kitchen is a compact master bedroom with a molded plastic rocker and adjacent bath. A child’s bedroom is just down the hall, brimming with fanciful figures from Wonder Woman to Pegasus. And those pretty Juliet balustrades border windows in every room except the kitchen.
