Get the Look : Modern French Apartment

modern-french-dining-roomEvery once in awhile, I come across a home or room tour worth sharing. Maybe it was the gloomy weather yesterday here in Salt Lake, but this gray, modern French apartment is stuck on my mind. It is so beautiful, chic, and collected in the most simple way. There are so many gorgeous, contrasting textures happening throughout this home and I can’t help but wish I had a European apartment like this one. Well- I have a real treat for you, I created a complete guide for each lovely space in this tour. Click through and you’ll see exactly what I mean…

Isn’t this super cozy for a minimal kitchen? I’m really into the cabinetry color mixed with the polished carrara marble… soft and subdued meets hard and cool in the most perfect way.


modern-french-kitchenWe’re waiting on new windows to arrive at our new home, but the kitchen window was an important one. Our previous kitchen had a window that only slid up and down. I wanted to be able to fully open the window above the sink, much like the one above. It has a charming feel, right?

french-terraceDon’t even get me started on the terrace and outdoor space… I wouldn’t even mind the rainy, gloomy weather. I could certainly get used to having my morning coffee here! I’m guessing at night, it’s just as magical… string lights glowing, glass of wine in hand, snuggled in a cozy throw, gazing over a lit up city.

The soft gray clawfoot tub totally compliments glossy tile and polished chrome plumbing fixtures (ahem, I want you towel warmer). I also spy a modern sink in the corner with shiny tapered legs.

french-apartment-bedroomThe bedroom boasts a cozy and comfortable aesthetic. Linen bedding is a must, paired with subdued artwork and sophisticated furniture, this space is minimal in objects- but not in style.

  1. Brilliant post, Sarah, absolutely brilliant. Cheers, Ardith

  2. Perhaps it’s just me, but for the terrace links, everything links to the H&M tea towel.

    1. Thank you!! There was definitely a broken link that was causing trouble. It should be all fixed now. Thanks for letting me know, Ardith! xo
