Oversized black pendant light and copper coffee table in Paris living room via @thouswellblog

In a gracious townhome in Paris, Joseph Dirand extends his sophisticated style yet again to create a simple, understated space that places emphasis on its furnishings. Using the ornate architecture as a backdrop, a dramatic black and white palette strikes a contrast in the living room, with an oversized pendant setting the center of the room above a copper coffee table. Floor to ceiling French doors open to the patio (take a peek outside below), one of my favorite ways to create a light-filled and open living space. In many of the rooms, striking pendants create a motif of focal-point lighting.

I love this simple copper coffee table, which I recently found in Sarah’s (A House in the Hills) living room update. It looks beautiful in both a warm, bohemian room as well as this contemporary, modern living room.

In the dining room, modern chairs with cane backs sit around a large black dining table with modern color-blocked paintings lining the walls. I can imagine the room may be much cozier at night with the lights spotlighting the table.

I love seeing the outdoor spaces for the home tours I share, and this chic patio doesn’t disappoint. I’m working on a patio makeover with Home Depot (I’ll be sharing some inspiration later this week), but I love the wicker sofa and potted boxwoods on this terrace. The beautiful exterior of the townhome isn’t too shabby either!
