Line of thought
In this daring home, the ancient rafters support steel skylights and exposed brickwork blends with white walls and sharp cabinetry. Interesting angles and cutting-edge technology make up Rue des Jeûneurs’ bold form, while shapely lamps and thoughtful artworks add character. The airy rooms may feel quiet but you’re surprisingly well-placed for Paris’ most bustling spots. The Louvre is within walking distance, and the Jardin du Palais Royal and the Folies Bergères are even closer.
Spheres of influence
A family of four, your hosts split their time between homes in France and Hong Kong – she’s an accountant and he’s in electronics. They purchased this apartment when it was a collection of old servants’ rooms and together opened them out to bring in new light.
A seamless blend of old and new, this home fills the entire fifth floor and overlooks a quiet courtyard. Each room is wired into the state-of-the-art sound system – from the fresh master bedroom to the atmospheric bathrooms. The lighting is innovative too. You’ll find contemporary chandeliers hanging above the dining table, and there’s industrial-style lighting amidst the kitchen’s wooden beams. An original chimney sits between here and the sitting room, where the furniture is pared-back and clean-lined. But the children’s rooms are more colourful than cool, and are filled with toys and books.
