A Paris Apartment Packed with Color

Elle Decor

You may have seen this Parisian apartment while browsing the latest issue of Elle Decor, but for those of you who haven't, we'd like to share its eclectic appeal.Designer Olivier Gagnère lives in a classic Left Bank Parisian apartment with high ceilings, gorgeous original moldings, and chevron hardwood floors. Gagnère has the good fortune of being an interior, furnishings, and accessories designer, so as expected, many of the pieces and scenes in his home are of his own design. There's an eclectic mix of natural textures such as leather and shell, and ethnic textiles, rugs, and artifacts. All of these elements are interspersed with modern pieces as well. We love how the home feels like a collection of objects genuinely built up over time. Matching is not the objective here. Gagnère has aimed to fill his space with things that he loves, and because he has stellar taste, they all come together to create a stunning home.
