Fabrizio Casiraghi set himself a pretty high bar in decorating his own Paris apartment, which is no bigger than your average New York City studio. “The overall feeling,” he says, “is to re-create a good balance of all the styles, influences, colors and ages that are personally important to me — and to the construction of my aesthetic vision.” That he’s pulled off this feat is A) astonishing and B) something to celebrate, because his vision is delightful. Casiraghi finds “age” in an 18th-century marble mantel and a vintage wooden bas-relief of Greek figures sourced on 1stDibs. As for “balance,” he says, it just might be in “the Persian rug under a Malaparte sofa near the Josef Hoffmann ceiling lamp — Asia, Italy and Austria at their best.”

“Perhaps my most prized possession in this room is my collection of paintings by my father, which were inspired by the work of Ellsworth Kelly.”

Design philosophy?

“Every room has to achieve the perfect balance between new and old, cold and warm, sophisticated and effortless — but always in a cultivated framework and without ostentation.”
