The columns, the klismos chair, the tease of a view out the windows... I love the bedroom of this Paris apartment by Frédéric Méchiche. And that's just the first photo. There is simply so much to love about this incredible space.

The copper bathtub, the mercury glass on the paneled doors, the sculptures... I love it all. This home is about luxury and editing.

When I look at the careful melding of opulence and sleek silhouettes I think Frédéric's greatest strength (aside form his fabulous taste and the extensive client budgets he enjoys) is his ability to exercise restraint. What could have gone wretchedly overboard is done with such finesse and a relaxed European cool. It's dreamy, isn't it?

Those of you who study Elle Decor will note that these are from the January issue. There's something so lovely about them that I keep coming back for more. I'm in the midst of a bedroom redesign of my own right now and I look to classic styles like this for inspiration.

For more of his wonderful style peruse his Paris flat featured on Heather's blog. It's more art gallery than home, you might say. Seeing how he lives in his own space and the many treasures he collects helps you understand his sensibilities and his personal experience with restraint. Nothing is ever overdone or overworked. Each space, each item, each piece stands beautifully and confidently on its own. Beautiful frames with simple finishes. Classic fabrics. Limited use of patterns. Judicious use of black - which is always grounding.

It would seem I simply need to don my French designer's hat to design my bedroom. Nothing a trip to Paris (or a heavy night of Pinterest) can't fix ;)

What the beautiful people are saying...

Love the bedroom...the crown molding and columns are a dream.

One just has to appreciate each and every darn detail and only wish when you opened your eyes in the morning that's what you'd see. Amazing!

Something to say, gorgeous?
