American Design in Paris

How amazing is this Parisian living room?!?  
Can you believe this is an apartment? Full disclosure, this is not my design but I did recommend navy pillows haha! The architecture alone is incredible but every last finishing touch is just perfect. From the dainty gold side table to the expertly accessorized green book shelf and every detail in between I could go on for hours about this Parisian perfection.
 The structured sofa and angled rug, tufted chairs and antique accessories make the perfect blend of formal style and inviting comfort. Have I mentioned 'perfect' enough?

The best part about this design is that most of the major elements were purchased here in the U.S. so getting a similar look doesn't require a trip to Europe. While some elements are a bit pricier from stores like Restoration Hardware many are completely affordable Home Goods finds. This design didn't happen over night, they have been collecting some of these pieces for years from various travels and antique stores and have used them in several different ways in different homes. Would you believe that this 'designer' isn't even a professional? Just someone with really good taste (and a pretty awesome designer as a sister).
