House Snoop: The Paris Home of Roxane Beis

Loft-Passage-Dieu-02-750x500

Bonjour! I'm so excited about today's House Snoop. Today we visit the home of Roxane Beis, a french stylist and interior designer who converted this beautiful space.

There is something so magical and nostalgic about a home that once functioned as something entirely different than what it is now. I can't help but imagine what daily life was like for the prior inhabitants. Hard to believe, but this loft was once a former print shop.

I am always drawn to homes that have an interesting harmony of contrasts such as industrial mixed with softer elements. I believe it takes a talented eye to be able to pair opposites and make them work effortlessly.This home has a perfect play of contrasts with it's mix of white, wood, exposed brick and concrete. Everything blends seamlessly...brilliantly!

If I could have nothing in my home but natural light streaming through lots of windows I'd still be a happy, happy woman. Lovely natural light nourishes and soothes the soul.

I'm in love with all the organic, raw materials and the neutral color palette. Perfection!

At this time I am in the very beginning stages of my own kitchen renovation. This kitchen is offering me tons of inspiration...simplicity, light, and again, organic, raw materials.

I believe that what makes a home a home is not just the practical and aesthetic elements but that something non-tangible that I can only imagine is the soul of the home. It's the soul of the home that comforts your mind, body and soul. Roxane Beis has created a home with heart and soul so it's fitting that her home would be on a street called Passage Dieux which I learned means "the passage of God".

au revoir!
