In the hands of two passionate interior design enthusiasts and art lovers, a Haussmannian home in Paris transformed into a beautiful space with carefully selected furniture. John Gerhardt, a global creative director at Moët Hennessy, and his husband Boris Masip, a fintech entrepreneur, fell in love with the apartment's original structure and decided to make it their own. Despite not being in their initially planned neighborhood, the couple couldn't be happier with their choice.

The allure of the Haussmannian home caught their attention and immediately drew them in. Now, after two years of living there, the couple is delighted with their decision. The apartment boasts stunning views and abundant natural lighting throughout the day. After furnishing it to their liking, the space now perfectly reflects their vision - modern and filled with carefully chosen pieces that match their unique style.

Striving to follow a designer's advice, Gerhardt and Masip believe in "buy what you love, and you will always find a place to fit it in." This philosophy has allowed them to explore their own style and select pieces that truly reflect their identity. Their apartment has become a canvas for self-expression.

When designing their Haussmannian home, Gerhardt and Masip focused on highlighting the details of the space. They carefully chose furniture and decor that they loved and that harmonized with the rest of the house. While each room holds its own charm, the living room serves as the heart of their home. As avid hosts, the couple aims to create a warm and inclusive environment for their guests, showcasing their personalities and making everyone feel welcome.

The centerpiece of the living room is the Bernhardt sofa purchased at Kiosk in Toronto. Positioned in front of the fireplace, it ties together the other handpicked furniture from various countries the couple has lived in or visited. The pillows are from a Belgian shop called the Corner Studio. An antique gilt mirror from the Paris Flea Market adds a touch of vintage charm, while the geometric rug by the Rug Company completes the look of the living room.

Gerhardt's favorite area is the dining room, where guests can relax and enjoy great conversations after enjoying a delicious meal. Masip, on the other hand, finds solace in the den, where he can work, read, and admire the mesmerizing city views simultaneously.

Although kitchens in Parisian apartments are often small, the couple's Haussmannian home offers a comfortably sized kitchen that not only serves as a functional space but also allows them to customize it according to their preferences.

Surprisingly, Gerhardt and Masip designed the interior of their Haussmannian home without the help of a professional designer. They meticulously handpicked each piece of furniture, creating a marvelous harmony throughout their home. Described by friends as eclectic, their style perfectly complements their personalities. Their apartment is not only modern and comfortable but also tailored to their needs and preferences.
