Artist couple Myriam and Dominique decided to escape the greyness and hectic pace of Paris and moved to a large apartment in the city of Nîmes, France.

The apartment with high ceilings and large windows is situated in a building that was constructed in 1835. The large space makes it possible to move freely, to entertain friends and for their two children to play. Most rooms are colorful. In the living room Scandinavian antique chairs were dressed in floral fabrics from Robert Le Heros.

One wall of the corridor (images above) is covered with a strip of wallpaper with trompe l’oeil effect (by Deborah Bowness for The Collection).

The wallpaper of the guest room walls (image above) was torn off. Myriam and Dominique liked the effect and left the walls bare. The screen is from Atelier LZC.
