a summer house in the heart of paris


Designer Paola Navone (one of my favorite designers!) has transformed a loft into a summer house in the heart of Paris, France. The designer has played with light and contrast in this large space. The stainless steel kitchen cabinets and appliances make a beautiful contrast with the whitewashed stone walls. A white canvas curtain separates the kitchen from the dining area.


The rectangular table was made from planks that were painted gray and then drilled and stitched together with red string. Chinese chairs are painted in a beautiful shade of green.


Paola designed the huge white couch “Marocco” (top image) for Casa Milano. The white curtains in the bedroom (image below) hide a dressing room. I am loving the tiles in the bathroom and bedroom: such a gorgeous shade of blue!
