Lauren Santo Domingo`s Paris Apartment by Fracois Catroux

This Parisian apartment and home belongs to Lauren Santo Domingo, socialite, business woman and co-founder of the online fashion retailer Moda Operandi.  The duplex was designed by the legendary Interior Designer Francois Catroux.  The rooms seem elegant but comfortable and airy.  I love the contrast of the parquet floor with the ornate walls.  “The architecture was beautiful; I didn’t want to change that,” Catroux told Vogue Magazine where the apartment was featured.  Catroux used different tones of grey and a mixture of sophisticated patterned fabric as the geometric Kubus fabric used for the windows made by Pierre Frey.  A mixture of modern art, classic furniture and sculptural lighting can be found throughout the impeccable designed apartment.

A beautiful view of the enfilade of rooms.  Love how the Platner chair seems so in sink with the Louis XVI settee behind.  The selection of fabric for the furniture is as exquisite as it can be.  Nothing is plain yet everything seems harmoniously cohesive and balanced.  Not an easy task to achieve when designing spaces with such high ceiling like this apartment.

The Master bedroom where the upholstered furniture were designed by Catroux as well.  The entire floor is carpeted in a custom rug with intricate black color trim.

The art in this apartment is as fancy as it can get.  A Robert Motherwell hangs on a boiserie wall.

The entryway with a sculpture by Curtis Jere.  The very popular Kubus fabric by Pierre Frey can be seen here again from a different angle.

A sitting area in what it seems to be the library.

The dining table which converts into a bar for party was designed by Catroux and the chairs are Louis XVI.  Francois Catroux seems to love this dining table and I can’t blame him.  The same dining table can be seen at Marie Chantal Miller’s home.

    Awesome home but I don't like the color combination. I like the color that is bright, refreshing and relaxing to look. It makes my home like I am in heaven 🙂
