Together, Victoire de Taillac-Touhami and Ramdane Touhami—the married couple who own beauty brand Officine Universelle Buly 1803—have moved 14 times, between houses and flats in Tangier, Brooklyn, and Tokyo. Now back in Paris, this entrepreneurial pair shares a stylish and chic home with their three children. The apartment is on a top floor of a classic French building—envy-inducing enough already—but the views inside and out are really something. “Everyday we enjoy the view and the Paris skyline leaves us speechless,” the couple wrote. In this tour, they share a small peek into their home’s amazing color and pattern combinations.

“Our flat is full of furniture, which was bought for other houses and flats. It’s pretty full and lively. My husband is a collector of books, chairs and much more,” writes Victoire. “In terms of decoration, when we moved in, we were very fast. We make bold choices; we experiment. Our home is always a work in progress. We keep making changes—doing new things.”
