The Art of Cozy Interior Design – A Parisian Pied-à-Terre Reborn

Updated: Mar 6

In the embrace of winter's chill, the pursuit of a captivating cozy interior design becomes an artful endeavor.

Cozy interior design project by Lorenzo Casillo of a french apartment

Nestled in the heart of the Left Bank of Paris, an international couple with four children entrusted the creative genius of interior design Lorenzo Castillo to metamorphose their 19th-century Haussmannian sandstone building into an opulent fairy tale. Today, this transformed pied-à-terre stands as a beacon of inspiration for seasoned designers seeking to embrace the timeless allure of a cozy aesthetic.

Lorenzo Castillo’ Vision

Driven by a vision of creating a sanctuary of comfort and sophistication, Castillo meticulously crafted an interior that seamlessly blends contemporary art and antique French furniture. The carefully chosen palette, a harmonious interplay of rich textures and vibrant hues, seamlessly captures the surrounding Parisian ambiance, transforming each room into an oasis of warmth and elegance.

Stepping into the master bathroom is akin to entering a symphony of marble and bronze, where opulence and refinement intertwine. Complicated veneers intertwined with brass doors and framed mirrors create a luxurious ambiance, while custom-made marble vanity tops, showers, and moldings, adorned with brass and trim, exemplify Castillo's meticulous craftsmanship. Devon & Devon sink fittings and French Art Deco sconces seamlessly integrate, adding a touch of timeless warmth to this captivating space.

The master bedroom unfolds as a sanctuary of enchantment, adorned with a Manuel Canovas print gracing a custom-made armchair and a Louis XV gilt-wood canapé illuminated by a vintage Maison Charles lamp. The interplay of rich textures, saturated colors, and Joan Miró's artwork guides a journey into the sublime. White bedding, contrasted with patterned accent furniture, adds a layer of opulence, encapsulating the essence of cozy interior design at its finest.

Roger Oates' expansive rug anchors the room, emphasizing the charm of the showcased art on the walls, all contributing to the captivating ambiance of this cozy haven.
