The City of light and romance is a great source of inspiration for many people due to its astounding features, especially celebrities. As a result, and upon a little bit of research, we decided to talk about the new Apartment in Paris of renowned Academy Award-Winning actress, Hilary Swank. The apartment is situated on an historic building on the Left Bank area and is best defined for its traditional charm and contemporary design.
The Actress who was recently ventured into the fashion and entrepreneurial world, launching an athluxury line entitled Mission Statement, has become infatuated with Paris, especially in regards to its beauty and light as well as the phenomenal architecture and pastries.
I fell in love with Paris. It’s more beauty than your eyes can even imagine, every which way you look.
With the expertise of designer Axel Huynh (founder of Crazybaby and creative director of furniture firm Henryot & Cie), Hilary Swank’s apartment has an amazing series of features that blend in perfectly, from soaring ceilings to its polished herringbone floors, to marble fireplaces and large windows.
Many of the pieces decorating the apartment are from Huynh’s design company, such as this marvellous marble desk and grey upholstered headboard depicted below.
This bedroom design has an intriguing selection of both vintage and modern elements. Displaying exceptional luxury, the bed is covered linens of Egyptian satin from Magbé Camara and besides it one can see a dazzling lamp by Objet de Curiosité, among many other befitting pieces. Most importantly, it accomplished the idea of comfort as said by Huynh himself, – “We wanted to create something really lively and fun yet where you could instantly feel at home.”
Basically every division is decorated to the detail, exuding a glamorous and organic look. In addition, the apartment also has a nice variation of colour.
Out of curiosity, Hilary Swank met the designer at the Miami Art Basel design event and was immediately drawn to his “joie de vivre” philosophy, thus they ended up working together for a longer period than expected.
And just to keep up to date with the actress’ cinematic endeavours, she is set to star this year in the dramatic biography, 55 Steps opposite to British actress, Helena Bonham Carter and Logan Lucky, an exciting comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh.
