Classic Parisian Apartment with Contemporary Decor by Art Buro

Art Buro took a classic Parisian Apartment and gave it a contemporary décor by first painting the walls a soft mid-tone grey, refinishing the herringbone floors in a clear finish and then layering in Carrera marble features such as the backsplash and counter slabs and contemporary cabinetry such as this crate style kitchen.

In the living room of this Parisian apartment, the grey walls and herringbone floor continue, as does the marble via the fireplace. Black is introduced within the coffee tables and bar and here too the lighting is contemporary and fun. What is most surprising about both this room and the kitchen is the lack of color, hardly noticeable with all the unique and interesting design choices that Art Buro curated.

I love how Art Buro used a fish tank as a bar. Definitely out of the box thinking even though the bar is actually inside the glass box.

While the kitchen and living area are monochromatic in design, the bedroom punches it up the Parisian apartment with bold blue hues.

The cabinet on one side of the bed when opened up becomes a home office, filled with everything you might need, and when closed up tight the room is all about a good night’s sleep.

Because classic Parisian apartments don’t have much in the way of built in storage, across from the bed is a stand-alone wardrobe designed as efficiently as possible. The same style as the home office cabinet, the wardrobe switches it up by going back to a neutral colour.

Large seaside paintings continue the theme of blue as does the plaid upholstered bed frame.

“I began my Interior Design career apprenticing with an architectural/engineering firm in Vancouver. I have my Associate of Interior Design from Douglas College; I spent an additional 3 years night school at BCIT studying building technology and 3 years night school at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. This combination of training gives me an all round approach to design from technical to creative and it is that all round approach that makes my design capabilities stand out.
