On Tuesday we toured a tiny apartment in Brooklyn but today we've crossed the pond and find ourselves in an unusual Parisian townhouse within the Marais district. Home to Gabriel wick and his partner Olivier, the open plan apartment surprises many of their French visitors who are not used to seeing loft-style spaces. I love the drama created by the high ceilings and extending, almost never-ending, parquet flooring. The owners liken the apartment to a theatre set and as you stroll through these images I think you'll agree that the curtain should never go down on this show.
One of my favourite parts of Gabriel and Olivier's home is the kitchen. Charmingly unfinished and lived-in, it echoes the relaxed vibe that travels throughout the apartment. Colourful china and simple packaging lift the stainless steel storage unit, whilst wooden boxes and shelving add character and personality.
Books, artifacts and portraits are used to decorate the open plan space, whilst simultaneously zoning different areas. Notice how they've kept to a palette of brass, golds and sepia throughout, which helps the open space to flow visually.
