This Australian luxury home has been transformed by the team of the architect David Hicks, that created an elegant and grandiose atmosphere, typical of the classic Parisian aesthetic, for a couple living in France almost all year round.
The modern apartment on the first floor belongs to an Australian couple and reflects the passion of the owners for France. They live there most of the time, in a castle in Normandy.
The impressive entrance with marble floors and oak doors, with custom-made brass details, unveils an interior space reminiscent of a classic Parisian floor. The parquet floors and light gray walls form the backdrop for the collection of contemporary and antique French furniture and fabrics.
A sense of opulence is reflected through each room, from the marble-covered bathroom to the luxury master bedroom adorned with a chandelier and an antique bed. The spaciousness of the contemporary living area is ideal for the couple to receive their family and for entertainment, the different areas are intimate and reflect something of nostalgia. The care for details and quality, as well as the importance of crafts, were key in the framework of this project.
The luxury furniture is from various eras and they have different styles and materials. The elegant, yet functional, this three-bedroom apartment tells the story of French design, from the classical to the contemporary era. David Hicks understood the practical needs of the owners and their taste for everything French.
