Jewel-toned Paris apartment by architect Hugo Toro lists for €440k

They say red and green should never be seen – but designer Hugo Toro knows better. The architect recently completed work on London’s opulently appointed Booking Office 1869, hints of which can be read in this Paris apartment, where rooms are drenched in opulent and unapologetic jewel tones and enlivened by plants.

The 30 sq m pied-a-terre is located on the second floor of an apartment building in the 10th arrondissement, sandwiched between the Saint-Martin canal and the Sainte-Marthe square. Toro gave it a top-to-toe renovation in 2018, introducing the bold colour scheme alongside experimental touches such as metallic wall-finishes. It’s a fascinating play of colours, light and materials that leans into maximalism.

Architecture de Collection has the listing for the bolthole, which is asking €410,000 and comes fully furnished. Pieces include a made-to-measure corner sofa in bottle green velvet by Pierre Frey and tropically tinged, ebony-edged cabinetry.

The Paris property bags views of the Oscar Niemeyer-designed HQ of the French Communist Party, with rooms arranged in a row to create a continuous circulation.
