I Spy Design: Amour
Amour is heart-breaking and subtle and beautiful and an enigma and SO VERY French. An exquisitely painful story told in subtle sweet frames amid a backdrop of the perfect Parisian apartment. VERY Woody Allen in Paris from Austria. One of my favorite nooks in the film is the above kitchen table area with the cluster of oil paintings and photographs, warm lighting, and classic tiled floor.
The stand out feature is the gorgeous herringbone wood floor throughout the entire apartment that are layered with vintage ethnic printed rugs. Each room is framed by detailed molding and anchored with classic pieces like a piano or floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves. Parisian apartment perfection if I have ever seen it.
