Steal This Look: The New Parisian Apartment Bedroom

January 11, 2022

We recently featured the new Second Residence, a showcase apartment from cult lifestyle store Merci located in an 18th century building the Latin Quarter of Paris. Former creative director Jules Mesny-Deschamps worked with Reka Magyar, the store’s head of style, to create the artful mix-and-match style seen here. We dissected the key elements of the bedroom to re-create the look.
