LUXE MINIMAL REHAB in Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Happy New Year! I’m just now getting back into the swing of things after an unplanned long break, and soooo excited to do so…finally! But rejuvenation comes easily when you stumble upon gems like this très dreamy Parisian terraced pad. Architect Joseph Dirand took a sad 80’s remodel and reinserted its previous glamour with paneling and moldings, marble galore, and contemporary fixtures for good measure. (Not to mention the floors…and the art!) It’s that perfected mix of traditional architectural elements with modern furnishings that never fails to take my breath away. And let’s not forget my fave palette of white, black, gray and gold…

Definitely a le sigh-worthy space!

Hope this helps to kick off a refreshing new year for you too!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Phenomenal space! Love the marble and the parquet floors are to die for.
    Hope you had a fantastic New Years Erica!

  2. Just returned from Paris and LOVE this area (who wouldn’t; high rent district there I’m told). And BOOM! There’s your dining room chandelier! 😉 so you! Maybe you could get an invite for posting his work!
