The owners, a couple in their 50s, were returning to France after having worked abroad in Brazil. They were also empty nesters: their children had left home, so they wanted to renovate their apartment and turn the children’s room into a space they could use. “The design brief was to transform a family apartment into an apartment for two that would include a beautiful master suite, a very large bathroom, a dressing room and an office,” says Séverine Rebout, associate interior designer at Studio Nooor.
The design firm gave the 1,292 sq ft apartment a complete makeover, redoing everything from the carpentry to the electrical work, and restructuring its physical spaces. “This gave us a strong base to build upon aesthetically and allowed us to completely reimagine the interior, choosing everything from the furniture to the decorative details,” adds Rebout. The reimagined abode comprises open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas, a private area with a TV, an office, a large bedroom, a gym section, a dressing room and a palatial bathroom.
