Inside a Stylish Period Apartment

Sacha Strebe

 Dating as far back as the second empire (1853 to 1870), this stunning Haussmannien apartment in Paris still has all the classic architectural details you'd expect from the period still in tact. From the interior balconies, chimneys, and service rooms overlooking the interior courtyard, to the wall-mouldings and decorative window frames, it's all there.The home was designed by Cécile Roederer, founder of online concept store, Smallable and she has restored everything "bit-by-bit" over the last 10 years, "without touching the basics." She told The Grace Tales: "I love the charm of antiques and Hausmannien apartments, which have a lot of character. You don’t need much to decorate this type of apartment."
