House Call: David Rager and Cheri Messerli in Paris

July 11, 2011

Seen (and admired) on Ensuite and Design Sponge: the Paris apartment of relocated New Yorkers David Rager and Cheri Messerli, a graphic designer and fashion designer/stylist, and their dog, Scout. Here's what David says about the flat: "It's in the 9th arrondissement, on the Right Bank, and is about two centuries old; in the kitchen, you can still see the hand-forged nails protruding from the wood beams. The apartment came partly furnished, but we've done a lot of work to really make it our own."

N.B.: David and Cheri recently launched an online wedding registry called Merci Registry, which allows you to create personalized thematic gift registries.
