Luxury homes:  A classic Parisian home transformed with charm and subtle elegance

The expansive house was previously owned by Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of LVMH Moët Hennessy.

Nestled along the beautiful sidewalks of the prime 16th arrondissement district in Paris lies an enchanting house with a sprawling garden and an illustrious history. Bryan O’Sullivan, the designer whose studio undertook the impressive transformation of the home takes Home & Decor on a private tour of the residence, to uncover the laborious journey of giving it a new lease of life.

    “The house was purchased over 10 years ago by the client, who was looking for a large family home with a generous garden, which is a rarity in central Paris,” Bryan explains. From the outside, neatly trimmed bushes line the sidewalk, providing a sense of privacy for the homeowners. The grey slatted roof gently slopes downwards, creating a grand look complemented by the elegantly framed windows and archways.
