Fabulous French Apartments - Guest Post


Today Jo, the online editor from Hides & Co. will show you
some of France's best apartments interiors. Enjoy!

For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with French culture and
design. I pine for a chic French apartment in a tony Paris neighborhood. For
now, I live vicariously through images of these lovely spaces and by reading
blogs such as French Madame’s. Below are some of my favorite French
apartments and a few comments about each. Which do you like best?

This very French apartment reminds me of a wedding cake with decorative
work on its walls and doors. Even though the space is formal, it is still
quite inviting.

Oh, such a wonderful space! So many pretty elements—the ornately carved
armoire, chevron wood floors, and books everywhere.

This is Christian Lacroix’s 17th century apartment in Paris’ Le Marais
neighborhood. Bright colors, eclectic art and funky furnishings create a space
with so much personality and character. I can picture a zebra print
cowhide rug
in this space with its black accents.

The owners of this elegant French apartment must love entertaining. Their
table for ten fits the modern space beautifully. The light fixtures mimic
paper lanterns.

Mid-century modern furnishings find a home in this very French apartment.
The vivid colors are a departure from many white or pastel decors you find in
similar spaces.

I would love to work from this home office with its chevron floors, tall
windows and white slip-covered furnishings.

This sleek modern kitchen will surely speak to all of you home chefs. I could
definitely see myself cooking up a French dish or two there.

Lots of gold gilding and silk dress this lavender bedroom. The decorative
molding and frieze above the door define the space beautifully.

Jo is the online editor for Hides & Co., a premiere
online source for Argentine cowhides. Their luxurious
cowhide rugs, cowhide pillows, and cowhide furnishings
come from Argentina, a country considered to produce the
finest cowhides in the world. Visit :)
