Down to Earth

Have you seen this? Let me give your eyes and brain a moment to gather their wits and absorb all that there is to see.  Are you better now? Fabulous. Let me offer some tidbits. This spectacular Paris apartment dates in from 1860s and resides in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. And while it's been updated to perfection, just look at the original details in all their splendor. 

Designer by Klavs Rosenfalck lovingly restored it and made it the showstopping residence now gracing the pages of Elle Decor. The lovely client? A bachelor executive in the health-care industry. (Mais oui, mademoiselle!) Ladies, buy your one-way ticket to Paris soon. He's still single. 

Designer Rosenfalck outfitted this 2,300 square foot space with incredible pieces like a vintage Vladimir Kagan curved sofa, a gilt console is attributed to Jacques Adnet and that beautiful Murano-glass chandelier. I"m most in love with the walls themselves and the gilt details. But notice the lovely silk rug that Rosenfalck designed. It's beautiful and offers a serenity to this elegant space. I adore that soft aqua. 

What do I love the most? Aside from the walls & mirrors themselves, it's that 1970's beautiful Italian brass console in the second photo. How striking! I'd love to have that in my foyer. 

Rosenfalck says that his job was to bring this grand space down to earth. He's done it with the generous seating and touchable fabrics, but this is still an imposing home filled with art and luxury designer furnishings. One foot in this home and everyone knows who's in charge. It is elegant in so many wonderful ways.
