Works of art: colorful homes in Paris


Rue Jules César Loft

Once a warehouse, this home in Bastille has been entirely reimagined by the hosts (they’re both artistic, and one’s a former photographer). You’ll find pleasantly mismatched furniture and a collection of artworks (both large and small).

Chaussée de la Muette

Furnished with a mix of contemporary and retro pieces, with some charming original details (like the herringbone parquet floors), this home’s sitting room is a stylish space. The four bedrooms are all made distinctive by bold wallpaper and diverse artworks, although they’re otherwise subtly done.

Rue Saint-Denis

17th century splendour and playful creativity collide. This home’s ancient beams are painted as white as its walls, and on wooden floors the Perspex chairs and glass tables perch alongside whorled walnut chests. With its intriguing juxtaposition of old and new, this home is one for all moods.
