The French interior designer and furniture Géraldine Prieur opened the doors of her Parisian home, with a striking and contemporary decor. To escape from the cloudy and grey days Géraldine Prieur looked for a radical solution: design her eclectic apartment with a typically Haussmanian character with ultraviolet colors.
The original elements, such as moldings, marble fireplaces, and 19th-century windows were preserved to respect the history of the place. Still, Géraldine Prieur was not afraid to create an interior design project in total contrast to this classic backdrop. She decided to express her passion for color in every corner and designed bold spaces that reflect a dose of irreverence and a taste for avant-garde aesthetic.
Since the launch of her office Rouge Absolu in 2012, Géraldine Prieur often uses striking tones that attract attention, and her home design is no exception. At the entrance, all the walls were painted Prussian blue. This same color was used for the carpet, where pieces of modern furniture with curves were placed. Rose predominates in the room. A historical portrait by Charles Auguste Vandenberghe in 1842 contrasts with the rest of the contemporary works.
In the family room, the pink tones continue, while the modern dining room stands out for its yellow and blue elements. A little more neutral, the kitchen has suspension lamps and orange curtains.
In the master bedroom design and the bathroom, the malachite green adorns the walls. An armchair and a pouf by Platner, as well as several vintage lamps, provide a warm touch. Passionate about fashion and an expert in color, Géraldine Prieur managed to create a wonderful and vibrant decor in her apartment. Far from any conventional style, she created a visually powerful space that stirs emotions.
