Dauphine Apartment by After Bach

Paris interior design studio After Bach has reimagined an art collector’s apartment in a 17th-century building in the city’s first arrondissement, the Dauphine Apartment. Overlooking the Place Dauphine, the home’s materials, furniture, and art were carefully chosen to echo its quintessentially Parisian location. Inspiration for its design was drawn from American painter Cy Twombly’s Rome apartment, celebrated since the late 60s for its seamless integration of art and architecture.
Other creative forces that came into play during the design process include French painter Balthus and American music composer Keith Jarrett. They have done so through a palette of colors and textures that are “quintessentially Parisian” in their eyes, including sage-green lacquer (a nod to the Seine), ivory-colored lime plaster, parquetry flooring, bronze and ivory jute fabrics, and greige stone.
In addition, their choice of furniture and art demonstrates a delicate balance between understated and playful, resulting in a simple yet charming atmosphere. The bedroom is After Bach co-director Francesco Balzano’s favorite room in the apartment, with its doors painted in the project’s signature sage green letting in abundant natural light and views of the neighbouring buildings. The ensuite has been approached in the style of traditional Parisian bathrooms, with the added bespoke element of made-to-measure stone basins.
