Great Apartment Evrard in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Left Bank – France.
The cobbled streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés were once home to Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. But these days it’s more about fashion than philosophy. No wonder, then, that your textile-savvy host chose to make this district her home. The large, high-ceilinged rooms house brightly coloured furnishings, and the dining is a melange of vintage and modern pieces, with glass-panelled doors leading into the sitting room. Here you can curl up by the fireplace with a tome on interiors, or gaze beyond the windows onto the scenery of the park below.
