A Parisian Remodel

Paris-based designer Stephanie Coutas recently had the opportunity to redesign her own home: a 19th-century townhouse in the heart of Paris. This four-story townhouse became infused with features this designer is known for: luxury and cutting-edge technology. KBB spoke with Coutas to find out the secrets behind her glamorous design.


GOALS

Coutas: “The idea was to transform the townhouse, which had lots of small rooms on each floor, into a family home with a sophisticated, comfortable and cozy atmosphere.”

CHALLENGES

Coutas: “I wanted to keep the spirit of the house and yet bring it into the 21st century. I try to never erase the soul of a place; I like to give it a new life.


I thought it would also be interesting to include both Art Deco and contemporary fabrics and materials, including mixing metal finishing and sophisticated velvets, bronze and embroideries. That was a challenge!”

HER BATHROOM
Coutas: “The lady’s bathroom in veined marble sits alongside an impressive dressing room in silver oak finishing. I choose the marble slate especially for the color tone of the vein.”


HIS BATHROOM

Coutas: “This is the most private space, and it needed to be spectacular and very efficient at the same time. The man of the house likes boats, so I wanted it to have the idea of a boat deck.”

SON’S BATHROOM

Coutas: “I designed this bathroom to have a cheerful atmosphere but with masculine touches. His shower with the coral motif brings in the idea of the sea and a touch of color.”


FAVORITES

Coutas: “If I had to choose a level, I would say the master suite is where I relax the most. LED lighting, aromatherapy and TV screens are always appreciated. The garden level is also such a fun space. In 80 square meters, I managed to put in a gym, Hamman space, home cinema, pool and massage room. That was an achievement!”
