Decorating With Vivid Color- Designer Andrew Gn’s Apartment Part 1

After one look at at Andrew Gn’s Parisian apartment, it is hard to believe that the famous fashion designer at one time fell for the modern-minimal interior looks when his apartment invokes the best of the designs and objects that were found in the past 17th and 18th centuries.

His 2,000-square-foot flat is filled with endless color.  Every square inch of space is  special in its own right.  The house is adorned with endless ceramics and china, which he tells Elle Decor is a bit of an obsession.  His parents were once collectors and accumulated many objects, whom he credits for his passion for beautiful things at an early age.

In the first photo, shows the drawing room which Louis XV gilt armchairs surround a Régence table, and a pair of Louis XV armchairs flanks a marble mantel. In the second photo, a tufted sofa and Victorian chair sit in the smoking room. The French portraits truly stand out and steal the show in this room. In the third picture an antique rug is draped over a table showing off the incredible wood floor. Finally above, a console table in the drawing room are Louis XV. The elaborate porcelains are a mix of “Famille Rose” and 17th-century delft. Beautiful silk brocade draperies work perfectly with the wall color
