House Call: Casamidy in Paris

February 4, 2009

Jorge Almada of Casamidy in San Miguel de Allende sent us photos of his recently redone Paris pied-à-terre, which he shares with his wife and design partner Anne-Marie Midy and their children. When they are not in residence, the couple rents the apartment by the week; go to Casamidy Vacation Rentals for information. Here’s what Jorge says about the remodel:

“The apartment is located in the former servants’ quarters of the Hôtel d’Hallwyl, a national historic monument and the last hôtel particulier built in the Marais. It was designed by the architect of Louis XVI, Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, in 1760. When we first saw the space, which had been renovated in a very generic way, we fell in love with the exposed framework and the terrace. In order to tone down the dry-wall effect, we painted the walls with Farrow & Ball London Stone. And instead of refinishing the floors, Anne-Marie had sisal carpets made to the largest possible dimensions. Throughout the apartment, we used shades of grays in order to accentuate the bits of color.”
