beautiful--as a european ex pat who now lives in the us, i miss how europeans design their homes. they nicely combine elegance and comfort, old & new.
funny, in response to above, i was just thinking that european apartments don't look so much different than american apartments anymore
I agree sunan. I suppose my place could be photographed in such as way as to be charming and original. The difference between these Parisian apartments and American apartments is that when you go outside, you are in Paris. I also just drip with envy over some of the entryways.
Hmmm...these homes look like they could be anywhere. What makes them "Parisian" in their decor? I don't really see any distinction.
Congratulations on finding 10 Parisians nice enough to let you photograph their apartments.
i do agree that over the last 5-7 years, it's become more & more difficult to see differences & that many of the homes pictured above could be anywhere. the globe has become a much smaller space. the main difference i think is that most americans, unlike those here on AT, really don't think too much on decor & have very standardized homes spaces. when visiting my colleagues, i'm always surprised how their space doesn't always reflect their more colorful personalities. many europeans (can't speak for all of course) are much more conscious of design & naturally have spaces like those above. i'm generalizing of course & i don't want to categorize americans & europeans. i've also noticed a lot of differences among europeans--the british have only recently taken to design & do-it-yourself projects. having lots of british friends & been in many british houses, i've gotten the impression that a cold, damp, neglected space will do for many. my french/austrian/german/italian/swiss friends are quite different & even when they were students had chic places that they arranged that way almost naturally. anyone else feel this way?
I agree with you Timmy Jr. There is a very stiff, linear quality to the way most North Americans decorate their homes.Most of the european homes I have seen have an ease about them that most Americans are not able to relate to or duplicate. It looks as if they can decorate their homes in a stylish manner without trying too hard.
Magnifique! Each room is elegant, yet warm and welcoming.
#2 and #4 are especially elegant. #8 has a nice cozy feel. Most of them could be anywhere, though.
