A modern Haussmaniann apartment in Paris

04.13.2017

I’m staying at my good friends’, Claire and Karim, apartment in Paris for a few days before heading out all over France for my book project. Claire and Karim’s Haussmannian apartment is located in the first arrondissement in Paris, right between the Marais and the Louvre neighborhood. While the apartment features some traditional Haussmann elements, like moldings or high ceilings, Claire and Karim updated it with contemporary elements and oak wooden floors that give the ensemble a very modern and current look. Let’s visit their home, shall we?
