There’s something so undeniably gorgeous about Paris – just walk down the street in its most fashionable arrondissements and you know it. The far too good looking city with its far too good looking folk are just so effortlessly stylish. So I always get excited when I come across beautiful interiors that personify that exquisite style that Paris does so well – that casual yet chic ‘joie de vivre’.
This 400m2 house is set in the beautiful suburb of Neuilly-sur-seine and has been stylishly crafted by interior designer Stephanie Coutas, who is well known for her neoclassical and contemporary interiors. It’s all modern art meets elegance … and I love it!
The two-level property was designed to act as a family home with its convenient location slightly outside the bustling city of Paris, as well as having its own extensive 1000m2 garden. The challenge given Coutas was to create an innovative and decorative interior, with one of the main features being the amazing range of contemporary art, including a series of retro photographs, an ‘artistic’ table football, a Plexiglas table by Peter Klasen, artwork by Robert Combas, a velvet gorilla and a sculpture of a fire extinguisher. Quite the mix!
Much of the interiors are designed by Stephanie Coutas for 1001 Maisons and incorporate her signature style of working with soft balances and high quality materials such as marble, stone and woodwork. Combined with the strong use of bold yellow, bronze green, orange and graphite feature colours, the result is an exclusive upscale interior design with a whole lot of sassiness.
