Magnificent Apartment Destina in Le Marais, Right Bank – Paris
From its exquisite furnishings to its bird’s-eye view of the Seine, Apartment Destina is set to impress. Up on the sixth floor, you enter into a hallway, which leads first to the panelled sitting room. In the centre here is a sitting area, where three velvet sofas face an arched window that frames this home’s view of the river. To the right of that is the kitchen (small, but strikingly decorated, with veined marble countertops), and then to the left there’s a black-and-gold dining table. Beyond it, a door leads through to the second sitting room, which has lilac walls, leopard-print carpet and a sofabed.
Next, the entrance hall leads past two bathrooms (one classic, the other boldly decorated, with a roll-top bathtub) and along to the master bedroom. Unsurprisingly, this final room is a dramatic space, with a canopied queen-size bed and matching silk curtains.
