This apartment feels part country home in the middle of Paris and part dollhouse, thanks to those over-sized, exposed wooden framing beams, which give a rustic vibe and play with the scale of the rooms. The owner, a Franco-American who travels regularly for work and spends much of her time in London, sourced many of the interior architectural elements—cabinets, stairway and mantel—from brocantes (the French flea market). Decorated with an eclectic mix of textures, patterns and treasures from her far-flung travels, the apartment feels personal and really special, like it would be a privilege and an inspiration to get the key and hang out with her belongings for awhile.
Two bedrooms, one bathroom. Price starts at $2,400/week. Location: In the heart of the Latin Quarter, right next to the Sorbonne. Rent it at haveninparis.com.
