We like the textural appeal of cement, stone, brick, steel, and it's interplay in interior design.

A Vintage Loft by Jean Ginsberg | Plastolux

A Vintage Loft by Jean Ginsberg | Plastolux | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
This vintage loft feels so alive with color and shape. "The sixteenth arrondissement is a concentrate of the Paris work of architect Jean Ginsberg
ParadigmGallery's insight:
This space is so vibrant and special we needed to share it with you. Unfortunately we miss the "raw and real" aspects of our typical posts, however I could make a small case for the lovely texture and tones of the fireplace walls. Everything else is pretty new and expected. The furniture is mostly great mid century and the art, oh my!
Here is a link to the apartment in it's original look in the 16th agrandissement. : bit.ly/2rS4sCT
also....a very cool post about possibly this building or one of Jean Ginsberg's others in this neighborhood.

HOME TOUR : Nadine & Matthieu’s Stylish Duplex Apartment in Paris | FLODEAU

HOME TOUR : Nadine & Matthieu’s Stylish Duplex Apartment in Paris | FLODEAU | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Flodeau is a design blog hosted by French interior designer Florence Deau.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Visit the home of Nadine and Matthieu, a duplex apartment in the Canal Saint Martin quarter (10th arrondissement of  the Paris).

This home has many raw elements, combined with a very creative and refined taste level.

When Matthieu was interviewed by Flodeau he gave a wonderful response to the question:

What you like least in interior design today ?

The whole ‘trendy-trends’ phenomenon that floats above decoration and interior design   – it seems a lot of people improvise themselves as professional decorators or interior designers. Most of them lack in originality and merely duplicate what’s fashionable. There is no spirit or soul in what they offer. To me, interiors have to tell stories.

 

...and I also appreciate this:

Your best decoration advice ?

Do things for yourself and not for the others. Don’t try to copycat interior design magazines. At the end of the day, you’ll never feel better than in a home that reflects who you are !!

Shinsuke Kawahara’s Whimsical Paris Apartment | Yatzer

Shinsuke Kawahara’s Whimsical Paris Apartment | Yatzer | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
What is a rice paper tearoom doing in the middle of a French, 17th Century apartment?
ParadigmGallery's insight:

 ...his strong connection to nature has always manifested itself in a river of bunny love flowing through the majority of his creations..... 

Of the interior, Kawahara retained the 17th Century arch and the hardwood floors, and filled the apartment with an eclectic array of objects and furniture that stylistically span genres, and eras, dispensing with traditional Japanese austerity to create a rich and vibrant treasure-trove of the things he holds dear.....

We really like the joyful exuberance and whimsy and of course his rich saturated color pallete.

Take a tour round the former merry-go-round workshop turned quirky apartment
ParadigmGallery's insight:
OK, this is raw in a different way, to my mind..." Animals hoofs and oil paintings – flea market finds – in the main living space." I think the hoofs would be rather off-putting however aside from that the visuals are quite eccentric and pleasing. The garden is spectacular and the variety of spaces is quite cool. Don't you love the play of textures and surfaces, the concrete floors, brick walls and warm toned woods? Oh, and who wouldn't love a wall of bookshelves with a very interesting spiral staircase......
" The ordinary and the extra­ordinary exist side by side in Isabelle Puech’s Paris apartment – a converted carousel workshop in the 9th arrondissement, where merry-go-round horses were once repaired."
