When you think of an apartment in Paris, there’s probably a common image that comes to your mind: high ceilings, white walls, beautiful molding, original wood floors, and charming views. Actress Hilary Swank ticked all of these boxes when she purchased her own Paris apartment. She collaborated with designer Axel Huynh to bring her own touch to the apartment while still maintaining its authentic character.
They adorned the apartment with jewel tones and black and white, but with a minimalist sensibility so the focus remained on the architecture. The decor comes second to the lovely bones of the apartment. The result is a chic apartment that feels clean and relaxed, void of any excess or clutter, and even has an artistic gallery-like quality to it at times the way it shows off every individual piece.
While this style may not be for everyone, the use of color and decor is shows great intention that is inspiring in its own way.
