There is just something so elegant about the simplicity of apartments in Paris. From my travels there, I remember being so enamored by the architecture of the buildings, and so pleasantly surprised when I stepped inside apartments that were simple and quirky. When we visited the apartment of my professor’s old professor (from when she studied there in the 60s) I fell in love with the floor-to-ceiling book shelves and the wide windows overlooking the tops of the buildings. But the furnishings were simple – well-made chairs and couches that looked as if they had lasted (and would last) a lifetime. It’s an unfussy way of decorating, there are no frills and everything has it’s own purpose. Julie Arrue’s apartment in Paris is no different and I find it absolutely charming.
