How to combine incongruous: an apartment in Paris

Today we will show you another white beautifulapartment. True, it has many colorful and unusual things. On the example of this interior you will see that to combine incongruous - normal, and also once again see the superiority of white In this apartment lives Paola Bjäringer (Paola Bjäringer) - a very creative girl who has her own art gallery, that's why she wanted to make her own housing unusual and decorate it with interesting interior items. For this, she turned to her friend, contemporary artist and designer Joseph Caspari. His style is simple and minimal. The designer calls his projects a large-scale functional sculpture. In this interior, he managed to harmoniously combine a purple sofa, furniture made of straw, latex, leather belts and a braided throne. And all this is not museum exhibits, but functional items.

Merging cultures

To diversify your life, enoughsurround yourself with interesting items, like our heroine did. Paola Bäringer was born in Sweden, grew up in Catalonia, was educated in London, and lives in France. Each of these countries left a trace in her soul, which later reflected on the interior. She got carried away with design and in 2009 she opened the gallery Slott. Over time, Paola's unbridled passion for creative interior subjects spread to her home space. Now the apartment resembles an art gallery with furniture of unusual shapes. Here you can see a modern leather armchair-ball, adjacent to a Swedish table of the XVIII century. Joseph Caspari was able to combine in the interior features of different cultures that are close to a young woman. Her creative and deep nature tends to everything unusual.

A discreet background for works of art

Despite the fact that items of furniture and decordifferent in style and form, they delight and focus on themselves. The interior of the apartment looks bright, friendly and warm. A real place to live! The interior is based on the Scandinavian style. It became an ideal background for interior items. Thanks to this you can pay attention to the exclusivity of each of them. In the dining room, the table is made according to the sketches by Joseph Caspari at the company Vilanova. Around the table there are interesting Branca chairs from the Mattiazzi factory. Their uniqueness lies in the fact that they are made of a monolithic piece of wood. On the wall - a famous photo made by Gregory Abou (Gregory Abou). Simple, but tasteful. The armchair of the Swiss Philippe Bestenheider (Philippe Bestenheider) in the form of bees' honeycombs has an ironic form and looks like a throne. And he claims to be an art object in the interior.

Purple sofa and straw pouf

The central place in the living room was the sofapurple. In this case, he maintains restraint and an aristocratic environment in space. It is a color of luxury and good taste. Versatility of violet is that it is easily combined with other colors, both with warm and with cold. Against the background of the gray floor and white walls with a ceiling, all the objects in the room look more expressive and their unusual shapes are clearly visible. As, for example, a coffee table of the French designer Arik Levy (Arik Levy). The violet sofa dominates in space, it sets the modern dynamics, and other colors act as secondary and dilute the composition. Puff and chair made of straw with latex, made in organic form, create a soft and flexible union, so they perfectly fit into this interior. This is a new approach to the use of natural materials. Contrast is the most effective way to isolate a certain silhouette. In the design art, it is often used.

Creative accents in the bedroom

Do not rush to throw out leather belts. There is an interesting idea for their application. As you can see, in the bedroom there is a chair from the famous Malaty Crasset (Matali Crasset). It is made of leather straps. Together with a chair made of colored latex, it became a bright accent of a simple-looking interior.


The terrace was turned into an elegant and cozy placefor rest, and the chairs of Constantine Grcik (Konstantin Grcic) decorated the space. The design of the chairs uses a special technology that creates sculpted voids. The tree and the head of the deer complete the overall composition of the terrace. Our opinion: - All pieces of furniture in the apartment are functional, beautiful and available for use. One of Paola's favorite interior items are the lamps from Arica Levi. The interior expresses the rich inner world of the mistress, not devoid of creativity.

Interior before renovation

And so the apartment looked before and during the repair.
