Haussmann blocks, designer shops, excellent restaurants, and champagne bars – we must be in the Champs-Élysées. Six minutes from one of Paris’ most iconic landmarks, the Arc de Triomphe, this apartment is a spacious and elegant base for exploring the city’s most luxurious arrondissements. Downstairs, a spectacular entrance is your first clue that this is somewhere special. A dark-green vintage lift and red carpeted stairs make you feel like a VIP. Inside, the living space is incredibly bright and airy. We love the eclectic mix of furniture and fabrics in an array of colours. While wicker lampshades bring a Scandi vibe, the overall feel is quintessentially Parisian thanks to wrought-iron balconies in the lounge and master bedroom. They’re as beautiful and ornate as your views of other buildings in this gorgeous street. As for exploring this local area, browsing the flagship designer shops of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées while staying here is a rite of passage. At only a four-minute walk from your front door, you might as well take a stroll. But if at any point you want to find somewhere a bit more edgy, hop on the metro at Georges V station, only five minutes from home.
