Paris has a storied history of inspiring everyone from artists and musicians to filmmakers and, of course, fashion designers. It is a city of beauty at every turn, with the Seine cutting through Gothic architecture, Belle Epoque motifs and Art Deco details. The buildings are iconic and as lovely inside as out, with parquet flooring and corniced ceilings. The floors creak in that perfect French manner, the ceiling height is generous and the windows far from the UPVC that dominates here. Whether decorating a diminutive apartment on the fifth floor of an historic Saint Germain building, or a townhouse in the villagey surrounds of Auteuil, Paris offers something for everyone and these properties are here to prove it.
