"The experience was great as the apartment was fantastic"
This Chic apartment near the Opera Garnier, with a discreet charm, consists of a large living room, two double bedrooms and a large bathroom.
The entrance, through the living room, brings together a sitting area, a dining area and a kitchen corner. The refined details, chosen with taste, contrast the classic Greco-Roman spirit, abstract or semi-figurative paintings and Asian prints.
The dining area - kitchen, compact, functional and elegant is a prelude to the living room: above the black-tinted fireplace, a large molded mirror multiplies the lighting that bathes the room and accentuates the warm tones of the herringbone parquet . The two contemporary lamp bases, carved in filigree on either side of the sofa, combine with the two Empire-inspired armchairs, which are covered with velvet.
To the left of the entrance the first double bedroom is found, where two small paintings, a panorama of canals and rivers, contrast in happiness with an abstract painting. The cream tones dominate for a soothing and restful effect.
At the end of the living room, towards the right, you will find the second double bedroom, in pastel and gray harmonies and decorated with two Japanese prints of landscapes and birds.
To the right, a corridor leads to the bathroom, decorated in a distinguished black and white. An original detail, the two lower squared glasses of the window serve as mirrors above the basin of the sink.

Near the Boulevard Haussmann, this Chic apartment near the Opera Garnier is located on rue Marivaux, which owes its name to the famous playwright of the eighteenth century.
"Marivauder" is a very French expression, which refers to the act of joking, speaking with affectation and preciosity. It is, however, a very simplistic conception of the genius Pierre de Marivaux: his characters certainly speak with speckled foil, but his plays reflect the extreme lucidity which he maintained towards human relations.
The painter Francisco de Goya lived for a few months at number 5 rue Marivaux in 1824. He had just fled from Spain, where a violent political repression was attempting to restore the absolute monarchy. He spent a few months in Paris before settling in Bordeaux, where he remained until the end of his life.
He who says Marivaux says theater, since this Chic apartment near the Opera Garnier is very close to the National Theater of the Opéra Comique, which has made a name thanks to its quality programs: the operas, operas bouffe and lyric tragedies bfelonging to the greatest composers that have succeeded each other.
One will find without trouble many restaurants and cafés in the neighborhood. For breakfast, the Café-Restaurant Mûre, open from 8:30 am, offers a fresh and healthy seasonal cuisine, which will also be able to satisfy the gourmands amongst you.
The Opera Comique, before moving to its present location, designated a theater company made up of Italian comedians. In memory of them we can go to the Caffé Concerto, a delicious and authentic Italian restaurant.
It’s a different and Southern cuisine that is practiced Chez Tof, a few minutes walk from this Chic apartment near the Opera Garnier: a Gascon cuisine from the Southwest very rich and fragrant. Semi-cooked foie gras, confit de canard, gizzards and squid will make your mouth water.
For shopping, you are very close to the Boulevard Haussmann and its department stores, Galeries Lafayettes and Printemps Haussmann, which have given reputation to Paris as the fashion capital of the world. But you can also look for and find discreet local stores for an original shopping stroll.
You are also invited to go to Epices Roellinger to find rare ingredients to fulfill cuisine lovers. You will be able to find the most exotic and distant spices, clever mixes, as well as peppers and cinnamon of various origins.
At 1, rue Marivaux you will find the small shop of the designer: Lijie, the clothing is imagined by young designers to give their version of confidential Parisian chic full of quality, this giving pride of place to artisanal production.
Tradition is at hand in the Courty et Fils knife shop. Collectors will find there the damask blade, the regional knife of France or the knife of Japanese craftsman that they lacked.
For japanophiles, the Cool Japan shop imports delicate objects for which Japan is well-known: clothes, bowls and gold leaf decorations, without forgetting the lucky cat Maneki-Neko.
