Black Interior Design transforms Historic Apartment in Paris

Located in central Paris, France, this historic 2-storey Paris Apartment was designed by Iryna Dzhemesiu and Vitaly Yurov as a dramatic melding of classic details and contemporary design. Aside from the beautiful black, this Paris Apartment also showcases distressed leather in the same shades as the parquet oak flooring and multiple pops of brass accents.

One of the most dramatic brass accents is an 8ft high statue of David created with rows upon rows of brass alternated with a black relief.

The scale of David is in keeping with the pair of amazing Baxter Chandeliers.

The chandeliers are a though instead of spinning silk, a spider went crazy spinning the brass filaments that support the multiple LED pin lights.

In complete contrast to the organic composition of the Baxter Chandeliers, the linear lights that highlight the edge of each stairwell tread bring order to an otherwise chaotic lighting aesthetic.

Sharing the spotlight when it comes to brass and light is the Delightful floor lamps whose multiple heads point both up and down, helping to make sure the black environment is filled with ambient lighting.

A green wall of ferns is used for air quality and for a connection to the outdoors. I wonder if the brass spinning spider was a stow away in one of the plants?

The green wall extends up the 2-storey wall, making as dramatic a statement as the black and brass do.

The apartment is also connected to the outdoor environment via a terrace accessed by a pair of black and brass French doors.

The linear lines of the brass hand pulls on the doors and windows are repeated within the Delightful floor lamps, candlesticks and fireplace pokers.

The Portoro marble used on the fireplace façade could not have been a better choice.

The same marble is featured within the coffee tables.

The Portoro marble is also used on the counter top in the kitchen.

The kitchen is one space that is not wall to wall, floor to ceiling black. Here the millwork is covered in patinaed brass sheeting.

Lighting under each of the exposed shelves help keep the kitchen light amongst all the black.

Another detail only found in the kitchen is the blast of cherry red lips within the digital artwork.

A little creepy but oh so cool is all the imagery incorporated into the tongue of the opened mouth. It’s as though everything she is saying is visualized on her tongue. Words have become reality.

Dark colours are not often used in Parisian homes. Too bad, this Paris Apartment is beautiful – maybe black is the new white.
