Luxurious Apartment in Beirut
David and Nicolas are responsible for this Beirut Home transformation. Both said that they “… had this challenge of building an identity.” This apartment belongs to a Lebanese Egyptian husband-and-wife, and they already have been working with them because David and Nicolas create their daughter’s Paris apartment. At this point, they kinda know what their clients want. “… the couple wanted an inviting space that married modern–but not too modern—elements with traditional pieces. First and foremost, it had to still feel like a home. “Their houses have very good energy when you enter,” notes Raffoul. “Very welcoming and warm.”
We are about to see a home that is definitely modern, but, at the same time its not too modern. We will find a clear dialogue between traditional and modern design. The interior designers said that “We’re not here to just change their way of living. We want to adapt, together.”
First things first, regarding the apartment that is located in a luxurious complex by Herzog and de Mourn.
We are in love with this view from the balcony, you can see Beirut’s downtown.
For the bathroom the interior designer chose a large circular mirror and an handmade chair perfectly located in the back wall.
After the main bathroom, there is the main bedroom that is cozy and simple. Besides that, it has a balcony with outstanding views!
The guest room has a blue wall and red sconces from Galerie Kreo, hang on both sides of the bed. Besides, there is also a painting by Pierre Malbec.
This is the definition of a dream kitchen with a unique seating area and a stunning view.
The dining room of this Beirut Home is another example of how traditional and modern can mix so well together. With a chandelier from Nilufar Gallery, the table is a David/Nicolas creation that was designed for Carpenters Workshop Gallery.
Seating spot where it is possible to relax and read a book.
The cabinet is the main star here and belongs to Fornasetti. Besides that, we can see the handmade wooden panels with engraved triangles motifs inspired by the sculpture of Egypt.
The seating corner combines a trio of bronze tables by Franck Evennou, the French furniture maker and further artistic flair.
Last, but not least, the living room of this Beirut Home that has everything in the right place. One curious thing, the sculpture in the corner arrived home in pieces and was built by hand, with help of all the team.
