Palette | Black and White
Minimalism is having a real design moment and there's nothing that achieves the look better than a palette of black and white. Gilles et Boissier, the Parisian interior design duo, are masters of the style. And their Boulevard Malesherbes apartment is a perfect example of how elegant the high-contrast palette can be, especially in a space where it further serves to highlight the classical architecture.
What makes the space so visually interesting is the mix of styles, materials and textures — contemporary alongside antique, natural fibers like cotton and jute, contrasting furniture & décor elements in matte and high gloss finishes, stark black and white mixed with touches of warmer wood, leather, and gilded accents. The mix helps to keep the mostly black and white palette from feeling too cold, and the result is an elegantly relaxed, airy and light-filled interior.
