TODAY, IT's WHISKED AWAY to Paris, and the 16th arrondissement, to a refurbished duplex apartment in a listed building on Place de Colombie with its own garden and street entrance. This pied-à-terre resides in a 1930’s Art Deco residential complex known as the Walter Buildings, named after its architect, Jean Walter.

The artful transformation was recently completed by Belgian designer Ramy Fischler’s firm, RF Studio, combining "traditional elements with forward-thinking design interventions, creating a multilayered interior that reinvents the apartment’s history and original aesthetic, firmly rooting it into the present day."

Curtains made of lacquered plaster drape over entry hall walls and walk-in wardrobe, and prints of Baroque-era paintings have been fused to mirrors and other surfaces, some of which hide closets and secretary desks. But what is perhaps the most amazing thing about this Paris apartment are the ombré walls, created by white custom epoxy paint that has been applied by hand, on the woodwork in the living room and dining area to create a fading out effect, "as if the ceiling is descending into the wall like a mist" . . .
