A house that derives its style from a famous painter! Interesting 2600 square foot apartment in Paris. It is located in the 1st arrondissement overlooking the famed Louvre Museum. Quite apropos to its location near arguably the most famous art museum in the world, the apartment seems to be themed after the work of early 20th century Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. Mondrian was part of the De Stijl movement in art. Mondrian founded an abstract art style that he called “neoplasticism” – black lines and color blocks on white ground.
This apartment features lots of windows, black wall molding and window trim, and color blocked rooms in yellow, turquoise, white and hot pink. In reality, the black moldings are the glue to this home’s decor by Sarah LaVoine.
