Parisian Chic Apartment

I know its been ages since I last posted... went home to visit the folks and was too busy being pampered by mom and dad... There really is no place like home.Well now I'm back, I've managed to catch up with work and have finally gotten over my laziness. 

This post is quite a tiny post... I'm sort of easing my self into things :)

I chanced upon this lovely apartment in Paris, which I can only describe as minimal Parisian Chic, on the Dust Jacket blog... you know I love it or I wouldn't be sharing it with you. I love it because it seems to remind me of that feeling you get when its a warm day and you feel a cool, light breeze gently blowing across your face and you close your eyes and feel happy and content. 

The spaces have a sort of zen calm of minimalism, but they are softened by the wooden rafters, the mix of antique and modern furniture and the lovely collection of knick-knacks. And I just adore the subtle use of colors. Enjoy!

Black & White + Yellow

Sometimes all you need is an expected color pop to completely change the look of a space and give it a real sense of dynamism. A while back I had done a post on the eternally classic color duo of black and white. Recently, I came across images of a few spaces where a burst of bright canary yellow has been used along with the black & white combo, with dramatic results. There is nothing over-the-top about the way yellow has been used- just as an accent. I think Black & White + Yellow is just such a fabulous combination! 

A burst of a bright color can be incorporated in any space and irrespective of the style you are aiming for. It can work just as well in a minimal setting as well as a classic Art Deco inspired setting. Take a look... hope these images inspire you as much as it has inspired me.
