designer's home in paris


I have a little crush on this remodelled 18th-century Paris apartment of interior designer Thomas Pheasant. It's located on Boulevard Saint Germain, which is on the left bank of the Seine river (that would be the south side). Pheasant said he "wanted to enhance the architectural details that had been ruined by bad remodeling.” Please take a look at the before photos in the article to see how bad it actually was! I love the view from the bedroom. He kept its design simple "so as not to compete with the view.” How wonderful it must be to have one's own apartment in Paris! sigh

We had a good day in Luxembourg yesterday and we also drove to the old city Trier in Germany, which I last visited in 1991 when I was travelling through Europe with an InterRail train pass. I hope you are having a good start of the week!

  2. What a gorgeous apartment. The view is breathtaking! It has a 40s elegance to it I think, as though it was a set from movie - beautiful. x Welcome back.

  4. We have really missed you, Lisa, I am glad to hear that only your laptop had some problems! I could never believe that such a beige apartment will be so amazing, of course, the view is fabulous, but I can see he did a great and hard job, I opened the old pictures and that green color near the fireplace reminded me of my grandma's old furniture! Happy Monday, Lisa! :*

  6. That is quite the view! And I have to say the inside isn't so bad either. I am swooning over that last photo. It's calling my name. :)

    And welcome back! I've been absent myself but that's due to all of the festivites. Life kinda got in the way. Happy to be back myself :) xoxo
