Get The Look: French Apartment

    • It’s no secret that the French are synonymous with an innate sense of style and when it comes to making a home, they adopt the same laissez-faire attitude towards interiors as they do with their personal style.

      Much like their enviable wardrobes, the French build their home around a few curated classics leaving the rest to evolve effortlessly with their personality. Alongside a taste for elegance and an eye for iconic 20th-century pieces, they have a gift for pairing family heirlooms with modern-day masterpieces.

      Looking for a little influence, it doesn’t get any more French than Nicolas Schuybroek Architects’ JR Apartment. Located in the Parisian arrondissement of Montparnasse, it impeccably weaves the clients personal tastes with a sense of history, grace and practical luxury. True ‘masters les arts décoratifs’ since, well- forever, we’ve rounded up a collection of beautiful French inspired objects to lust over below.
