More and more I love homes that could be described as interesting rather than just pretty. Pretty is all well and good but frankly, pretty alone gets kind of boring. You know what I mean? I guess homes are like people in that respect!
I love a little bit of quirky, something a little off-kilter in interiors and this is something the French do really, really well.
This apartment of shoe designer Rodolphe Menudier is the perfect example.
There are funky accessories here and there, unexpected colors and some real-life clutter all coming together to create a vibe that’s lived-in but without being messy.
Of course, it never hurts to have those gorgeous architectural details and herringbone floors to make everything look good!
From this shot, I can see the apartment is also near Canal Saint-Martin – a very cool neighborhood. Oh, this makes me miss Paris!
Have a great weekend, guys, see you Monday!
