Decorating a contemporary apartment is simple and difficult at the same time. On one hand it’s easy because there are no unnecessary details and accessories that you need to pay attention to and the style is familiar, is something that you experience in real time. On the other hand, it’s difficult to create a striking décor that’s simple at the same time. Everything has to be structurally perfect because there are no accessories to hide the defects. This apartment is a very close to perfection and something that could inspire everyone else.
The apartment is located on Rue de Rivoli in France and it was designed by Isabelle Stanislas and Leiko Oshima. Their designs are known for the elegance, glamour and color contrast they offer. This particular apartment is situated in an XVIIIth century Louvre facing building so creating a contemporary décor for it wasn’t as easy as it seems.
The apartment has 4.45 meter high ceilings so there was grandeur in there from the start. The interior first had to be modified in order to create large open spaces. The greatest challenge was to create a striking contemporary décor while also preserving the building’s history and original charm.
