What is French Design?
The characteristics of French style are a space with lots of light, natural material, and elegant details. Interiors in the French style are light and airy. They can also be bright, and inviting, with soft or muted color palettes like muted blues, cozy brown tones, and serene cream colors.
The Key Features of the Paris Apartment
Designer, Joseph Dirand, is known for designing elegant spaces filled with art, culture, and exquisite details. This apartment is the perfect example of his design skills. The Parisian pad encompasses French design and modern furniture. Each room was carefully curated to include strong lines, refined home decor, and purposeful lighting. All of these key elements create a timeless and elegant French apartment design.
Parisian Bedroom Design
One of my favorite rooms featured in this virtual apartment tour is the primary bedroom. I’ve stayed in many different hotels and rented different Paris apartments throughout my life. It’s always a wonderful surprise to discover the bedrooms’ decorating style while traveling in Paris. There are so many different versions of the French Style. Some like to decorate with vibrant color palettes and extravagant lighting fixtures. While other designers, like Dirand, create clean and fresh designs. Blue is one of my favorite colors. I adore his use of muted blue tones. His bedroom design is a neutral color scheme with a dark blue/grey velvet sofa for a cozy touch.
Rich Materials and Luxe Furniture
Dirand’s choice of rich materials and luxe furniture complement each other nicely without overwhelming the space. The space feels expensive but not too extravagant. Exactly what you might imagine when you think of a luxurious Paris apartment.
About Joseph Dirand
I went on a deep dive to learn more about interior designer, Joseph Dirand. According to L’Officel, Dirand is not your run-of-the-mill French designer. His imagination knows no limitation and this Paris apartment is just a preview. He has renovated all types of projects including an ancient American embassy in London and even a Bahamian private island. Possibly, his most ambitious project included him venturing into the futuristic realm of Zephalto’s stratospheric balloon excursions. What I admire most about his work is the way he grounds each project in its surroundings. His father, Jacques, taught him the fundamentals of design and photography as he grew up. His exposure to his father’s photography helped fuel his passion for 1950s elegant architecture and 1960s free-spirited art vibes.
One of the many reasons I love his interior design projects is due to his minimalist design approach. He focuses on a room and reduces it to what is truly important. Everything he touches has a perfect balance and is purposeful With over 25 projects currently in the works throughout the United States and Europe, it’s evident that Joseph has mastered the skill of merging intricate richness with clean simplicity, transforming each place into a unique story waiting to be discovered.
