at home in le marais.

this très chic apartment located in the heart of Le Marais is home to Photographer Matthew Brookes. it has that cozy modern vibe i’m loving lately, created in part by those amazing high ceilings with wood beams, and the way Matthew cleverly mixed in a few modern pieces with antiques and vintage finds. and Matthew’s gorgeous work, displayed in all its black and white glory on the living room wall, is a beautiful focal point in an otherwise white-washed space. talk about gallery wall goals! the apartment is a visual smorgasbord of textures and styles, from the old Mercury mirrors and metal chairs to the French linen on the sofa and vintage chandelier. enjoy!

  1. I always wonder about acoustics in places with high ceilings and no carpets or curtains. But it’s a nice shabby chic ensemble.

    A well-worked functional and creative space – would love a loft bed!
