Parisian inspirations

Paris, Paris, Paris! A cultural city par excellence, our beautiful capital is bubbling with ideas and is therefore a great source of inspiration. You just have to walk around the city to appreciate it. Very attached to its history, the city of Paris has managed to preserve the charm of the old, its beautiful buildings and monuments while welcoming modernity with great taste.

And if we focus on the interiors, Paris is full of magnificent flats decorated with style, which we love to discover. Starting with the beautiful “Haussmanian” flats, whose undeniable charm makes us dream. The mouldings, the high ceilings, the beautiful fireplaces so characteristic, the old parquet flooring that creaks under your feet, the wrought iron balconies and the view over the roofs of Paris enjoyed by the lucky ones, are so many wonders that inspire us.
