Modern French style


Not to be mixed with the French country style we've grown to love over the years, this style is meant for 'grand apartments' which are the epitome of chic. Imagine capsule wardrobe, capsule kitchen and bath, capsule everything because there's barely anything in sight other than epic art on display and ceilings that seem to go on forever. It is indeed minimalist but you can imagine these apartments being filled with guests and entertaining the way French know how to (you never get drunk but there's free flowing wine or champagne alright).

Key traits

This look is borderline minimalistic and a mix of the old (a tufted sofa or settee for example) with the ultra modern (a plain metal coffee table).

  • Furniture is sparse, to keep the space looking bigger. 

  • Colour is kept to white /off white and any elements that define the architecture of the space are embraced, shown off - elaborate ceiling design, large window doors.

  • Art is displayed on a  grand scale - oversized prints and canvases, sculptures.

This style is for

Those who like and can afford a bit of luxury as this look is hard to be achieved if the best materials are not used. This is not a look for one room only. Can you go all the way?
