Stylish transformation

The interior layout of historical buildings in Paris often mismatches today's standards. Small rooms, long dark corridors and other features of old constructions complicate the transformation in modern and comfortable apartments. Young French designer Vincent Parreira took the challenge of reorganizing this beautiful space situated in a XVIII century building.
Low wooden ceilings are restored and painted in white color. The dominance of white makes a perfect neutral background for the colored furniture. The elegant dining room features a table with an oval marble table, classic wood chairs, black and white artwork and smoky glass partitions. To remind the glorious past of the apartment, a magnificent ancient crystal lustre.
In the bathroom, grey color is combined with smooth and shining surfaces. "I wanted to create a sensual intimate atmosphere, but at the same time open to light », —tells the designer.
