I'm living in Paris with my wife and our two daughters, aged 5 and 2. Both of us are architects and we are renting a flat in the center of Paris, in a Haussmannian buiding from the XIXth century — original marble fireplace, plaster moldings and wood parquet. I set up my collection of mid-century design classics from the Eames to Jacobsen, personnal vintage stuff and artworks from Mathew Barney or from friends.
Both chic like Fornasetti plates or Poul Kjaerholm design and cheap like an Ikea sofa to allow kids to jump on it.
Vintage wood flooring, white plaster walls, all is in the details; the stuff I got from flea-markets and drawings from our daughters. Hope you like it...
Thanks, Ben !
