Inside a Playful, Fashion-Forward Paris Home
An architect redesigned this classic apartment to better reflect its fun owner.

Architect Camille Hermand likes to design spaces that are reflections of their owners, so when she met a woman who works for a children’s fashion and lifestyle company in Paris, she knew the project was an opportunity to have some fun. The owner wanted to transform her apartment in the 8th arrondissement into a contemporary home for herself and her three children without losing its beautiful architectural details.
“The apartment has a lot of wonderful authentic features,” Hermand said. “So rather than completely re-do the space, we chose to work with and respect the existing features with a selection of contemporary furniture and tones.”
Hermand applied Wall & Deco’s romantic “Midsummer Night” wallpaper above a custom bench in the moody entrance.

Tolix stools are pulled up the kitchen’s custom island, which is topped with Silestone Blanco. Hermand designed the cabinetry and had it fabricated in Oberflex wood laminate. Hermand satisfied the client’s wish for a large bookshelf and reading area in the family room.
The master bedroom is painted in Sikkens’ T0.20.30, and the space is accented with a rosewood wardrobe and Gras wall lights by DCW Editions.
