Holiday at Home With This Sophisticated Paris-style Home

Holiday at Home With This Sophisticated Paris-style Home

Paris. The city of love, baguettes, l'arc de triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. While a trip to Europe may be off the table for now, it is still possible to feel like you’re on the French riviera or in a bustling heart of exquisite architecture.

The right home design can have your heart swelling just like the feeling that Paris brings. Webb & Brown-Neaves have crafted just that emotion with their The Amour home, designed to evoke a sophisticated Parisian apartment in the suburbs of Perth.

A truly elegant ensuite

In The Amour, the entire upstairs is devoted to the master suite, with a seamless transition from bedroom to ensuite. The Amour’s ensuite is elegant and timeless, echoing the monochrome theme throughout the home and bringing in lush marble and brassy highlights for some French inspired pizzazz.

Laura from Reece explains how she brought the neoclassic trend to life in The Amour.

Stylistically, the bathroom mirrors the façade of the home, with matte black framed shower screens and mirrors that create beautiful structure and form. The two-tone Alape Sondo counter basins are the ideal complement to the statement freestanding bath, and you’ll never want for more storage with the extensive cabinetry that makes up the floating vanity and walk-in robe—complete with a dedicated jewellery cabinet.

A taste of France

Beyond the bedroom, the rest of L’Amour—as they say en français—is just as stunning. The first floor embraces open plan living while preserving distinct, functional spaces. In the kitchen, the palette of black, white and stunning gold is complemented by herringbone timber flooring and unique gold pendant lights.

The dining room seamlessly gives way to the decadent entertaining area, with an expansive light tan couch adding softness atop the calming pink rug. The unique light fixtures are a feature throughout the home, culminating in a clustered chandelier near the staircase.

Your own personal riviera

Although little can compare with the sumptuous coastline of the French Riviera, The Amour has its own personal spin on the seaside feel — a beautiful backyard pool complete with an al fresco dining area.

The Amour is a little patch of Paris, right in our own back yard. While international travel is tricky these days, you can still feel like you’re on holiday with a bathroom—and home— that feels like the city you love.
