Rich and robust
Bright plum, bold red and rich burgundy – Rue de Penthievre II is richly toned, perched above Parc Monceau’s leafy shade. The sitting room is cosily arranged with soft-mauve sofas and upholstered chairs, while the dining table has seating for four, dressed in regal purple. The study is warm and inviting, with shelves of gilt-edged tomes and leather hardbacks, and an antique desk for those with business to attend to. But if your trip is more for pleasure, the iconic avenues of the Champs-Élysées are just a stroll away, while picnicking in elegant Parc Monceau is just as easy to plot.
Your hosts are a cultured pair with a taste for the ornate. They split their time between Paris’ elegant streets and the wooded realms of their country home in La Foret de Sologne.
Though most of this home’s rooms are opulently decorated – the living area in imperial purple and the study in dark woods and crimson – you’ll find the master bedroom awaits in calming contrast. All soothing grey and striped curtains, a set of charming artworks hangs above the bed’s headboard. And beyond the generous wardrobes, you’ll find the bathroom is just as comforting, with gleaming black tiles and a deep bathtub. You might take a moment to admire the sitting room’s oversize oil painting, or peruse the china collection, but with leafy parks and local eateries to sample you might be easily distracted.
