The stairway is firmly fixed to a structure hidden within the wall. The wainscoting was whitened and sanded too yield a special “céruse” look that involves a special bleaching technique. The same finish is used on the living room’s bookcase, the wardrobes in the children’s rooms and for the furniture in the master bedroom. The wooden chairs in the room are a celebrated design by Charles and Ray Eames called LCW from their Plywood Group. Made from molded ash plywood, they are as popular today as they were in the heyday of their design in 1945.
Further down the line is a work and library area. Set off from the rest of the space with a unique shelving divider, the office is light and airy. The glass desk is modern but features a base made of natural wood branches, which helps inject more of the avant-garde feeling. The same lighting fixtures are seen here, but the library section includes cloud-like lanterns scattered across the ceiling for a dreamy effect.
In addition to a simplification of the overall floor plan, the designers also made some structural and functional changes. One of the bedrooms became the new living room and the kitchen and hallway were turned into an open social space. The entryway/ foyer was replaced by a cleverly hidden storage area under the staircase. The walls throughout the apartment are either white or a soft pastel color and the overall decor is a bright, open and airy one.
