Turqoise Love: Chahan Minassian in Paris

This amazing apartment in Paris was designed by Chahan Minassian.  I really love the color palate, so soft and yet lively.  I also adore the mix of old and new.   The combination of the baroque furniture with the modern art is such a great dynamic.  It seems Chahan knows his art as well as his interior design.  He's quite a renaissance man.  In addition to being an interior designer, he is an antiques dealer, a gallery director, and a furniture designer. Wow!  Some of his other projects are much more spare...I really like them as well, but this project really stands out!  It's like a cross between 1930's Hollywood glamor and 21st century modern. I can't get enough of this place!

Even this really spare kitchen is made glamorous with book matched granite slabs for the backsplash and a reflective stainless steel toe kick. 


  1. Love the deep turquoise and baby blue. The sofa is amazing too.
    You are right in saying it is wonderful, almost perfect. I certainly would love to stay there.
    Happy Thursday, Jennifer.

    Love that Parisian apartment by Chahan Minassian!! So stylish and chic. And, what beautiful, classical architecture. The wood paneling is gorgeous. I especially love the detail above the doorways.
