As I got so many american readers of my blog and also so many visitors on my homepage www.ruedigerbenedikt.com, I want to apreciate the ocassion and treat all my english-speaking readers with a visit to Paris-virtually speaking. Most of the american people dream about at least visiting it once in a lifetime about visiting Paris. Very few can afford to have a own home there, and a California-based lady made that dream come true. She is so kind to open the doors of her home for us today, so we can have a look what happens when America and France meet in a central flat in Paris. The whole style is very french, very elegant, classic, so confortable she has a hard time to leave here european-home, even though Paris has so much to offer, so why not take the ocassion and have a look and draem about what if would be like to live there for a while? Follow me and enjoy the tour…so do you feel like visiting Paris and have a quick look at this spelendid apartment in the center?
Very french, very much like the whole feeling of the place, the sofa seems very confortable, the huge windows let the sun come in, and even compensate the days when it-s raining, which happens a lot in while visiting Paris.
The coffee table, fresh flowers make the whole salon much more elegant, the antique marble statue just combines perfect with the old painting on the wall, everything seems perfect in this picture, don-t you think? Such an elegant and stylish apartment you can only find by visiting Paris.
Even though the mouldings on the ceiling and on the wall are new, the match perfect with the handcarved gold plated mirror, very important not to overload the place with too much color, I find the combination just perfect here. Also the old furniture matches perfect with the style of this old mansion.
The dining room has very strong colors, the blood-red is perfect to give it a more theater-drama-style, the old doors have been restored very carefully, the small furniture on the side is from the 18th century. Bon apetit! An american dream has been acomplished here.
Every detail in this place looks as if it has always been there, the round furniture has a marble top on it, on which are two classic lamps to give some more light to the room, also very remarkable the hand carved mirror, the hight ceilings help to take away the drama of the very strong colors, always be careful by adding too much color, as it can make look the place too dramatic easily, not in this case as the aparment has very large windows and lets a lot of light shine in. Pure luxury without any doubt. I am sure anybody would very much enjoy visiting Paris and have a glas of champain, french of course.
As elegant as it can be, just like staying at the glamouros hotel Ritz, while visiting Paris, lots of light coming in, very timeless curtains which match the bedcloth, pure french timeless elegance. Did you enjoy the visit as much as I did?
