Salut! For those who may not know, we've been travelling to France over the past 6 months to work on a residential project in the heart of Paris. Steps from the Eiffel tower, we really could not have chosen a more beautiful city to add a bit of our own touch of style.
Our first visit to the project site was an eye opener. It took us a minute to "see" the beauty of what lay before us. Once we started looking, however, all that was visible were the awesome pieces of art, an amazingly eclectic furniture selection and volumes upon volumes of books. The interesting history of this duplex apartment will be shared in a future post but I will at least mention the beautiful moldings, two-story windows, curvy iron staircase and the double height living area. Here is a teaser of the progress thus far:
Don't know what your thoughts are, but we are absolutely in love with this project! Language barriers, serious jetlag issues, sprained ankles and the flu has not hindered its progress much, if any at all. And now, the rich history of the clients and their love for the arts shines through all the rooms and we cannot wait to share the home with you once its completed.
