A Minimalist Parisian Loft

April 10, 2014

One of the places in the world we’d most like to live? This sophisticated and soulful Paris loft designed by Régis Larroque, giant green cupboard included. Located on Passage Charles Dallery in the 11e, the apartment was completed back in 2006, but is timeless–and alluring. Look no further for warm minimalism with a French accent.

Above: A streamlined cupboard divides the entry from the main living space, and serves as an alternative to a built-in front closet. Régis Larroque is a sought-after Paris designer of shops and showrooms–for Hermes and Nina Ricci, among others–and his display and space-planning skills translate well in a residential setting.

Above: The wood flooring shifts to polished stone in the kitchen. A compact refrigerator with a clear glass door is incorporated into the streamlined custom cabinetry, which is hardware-free and rests on a recessed base, so that it appears to be floating.
