With its graceful parks, elegant boulevards, and cultural and historical landmarks, Paris offers an unmistakable charm. Inspired by the homeowners' memories of the French city as well as their love for Europe, Jennifer Murray, design principal of Evocateurs, sought to capture the romance and grandeur of European cities in this project's remarkable makeover, realised in collaboration with AHC Build Team.
“I always find a boundless source of design inspiration in my clients, whether it’s their personalities or experiences that evoke great memories. My role is to help them create the storyline [in their homes],” explains Murray.

To craft this narrative, the designer opened up the space and brought “soul, substance, and a dash of fun and unexpected appeal to the airy abode.”
“The original floor plan was boxy and simple; it was very functional, but had so much potential,” she recalls. “I wanted to inject elegance and flair [into the home], so taking down the walls was paramount.”
In contrast to the original angular layout, the new scheme features curved interior architectural elements that are easy on the eye. The domed ceiling adds a sense of classicism to the living area, while graceful arches contribute to its elegant look.
