Modern Magic in Paris


I love the idea of taking this old and glorious Paris apartment, and highlighting it's amazing architectural elements by streamlining all the furnishings and living with the bare minimals.  The gold fabric ads to the warmth and character that you would expect from such a home, and yet is clear of all the other typical selections.  The modern dining room is just fabulous, and I love how the real art comes from architectural detailing in the walls, floors, and fireplaces. 

The firm that created this interior is Studio Ko out of France,  The design team Karl Fournier, and Oliver Marty typically create ultra sleek and quite contemporary dwellings.  So this little gem on their website was a pleasant surprise.  Be warned, there is some haunting music playing as you browse through their portfolio.
