In a variation of blues, whites and pinks, an apartment with a view of the sky and the Eiffel Tower, renovated by the GCG Architectes agency. Between Arts Deco influences and contemporary design, frescoes, mosaics and carpets harmonize with serenity.

Each bedroom has its adjoining bathroom. The children’s room has a walk-in shower with a wall of cement tiles with a graphic composition and, on the floor, a calmer tiled floor reminiscent of a granito.
