Interiors: Lauren Santo Domingo's Paris Duplex

Speaking of APT with LSD, Lauren’s own home was featured in the September issue of Vogue. You may have seen her New York apartment (posted here and here), but Vogue now takes us inside her Paris duplex, which serves as home base 4-5 times a year. Two words: I wish! Wow. It’s so bright and glamorous with lots of references to the French modern aesthetic that I love so much.

The space, which is conveniently located upstairs from Lauren’s in-laws, was designed by legendary decorator Francois Catroux. "The architecture was beautiful; I didn’t want to change that." Agreed! So, the designer set out to renovate the entire apartment while painstakingly preserving all architectural detail including the 18th-century plasterwork.

What the apartment lacks in color, it certainly makes up for in texture, shape, and artwork. Modern art and sculpture can be found everywhere – from the fireplace mantel to the dining room table to the bedroom walls. Its contrast to the home's architecture keeps stodginess at bay while creating yet another one-of-a-kind, slightly whimsical, urban retreat for the Santo Domingo clan!
