Paris apartment

Architect Hugo Toro’s jewel-toned Paris apartment sells for €440,000

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

The 30 m² pied-à-terre is located on the second floor of a building in the 10th arrondissement, sandwiched between the Saint-Martin canal and the Place Sainte-Marthe. Toro gave it a top-to-bottom makeover in 2018, introducing the bold color palette alongside experimental touches like metallic wall finishes. It is a fascinating interplay of colors, light and materials that leans towards maximalism.

Collection Architecture has the listing for the bolthole, who asks for €410,000 and is fully furnished. Pieces include a bespoke corner sofa in bottle green velvet by Pierre Frey and tropical-hued cabinets lined with ebony.

The Parisian property offers views of the French Communist Party headquarters designed by Oscar Niemeyer, with rooms arranged in a row to create continuous circulation.
