Architectural Digest Shows A Unique Country Retreat To See In Paris – Besides the romantic places in the iconic City of Lights, there is so much to see and admire… If you’re looking for a place that truly has the essence of the classical French style, AD magazine presented a fine suggestion for your guide tour!
Since you’re going to Paris for one of the most important design fairs in the world, you should go visit the villages that surround the romantic city and admire the beauty of nature. There is so much to see besides the iconic Eiffel Tower or the amazing Champs Elysses, like this classic French country retreat presented by the Architectural Digest magazine!
Jason Basmajian, a Boston native and fashion designer, fell in love with a pink house built in the late 19th century, called Le Couvent when he started his search for the perfect Parisian retreat. As the head designer at luxury goods brand S.T. Dupont, Basmajian immediately got the inspiration that he needed for this incredible interior design project!
He has been the creative mastermind behind popular menswear brands as Brioni and Gieves & Hawkes, and nowadays he is the head creative officer for the luxury label, Cerruti. Although he is a London resident, the interior designer manages his professional career in a way that he can escape, for a few days, to his dreamy Le Couvent paradise.

The original house didn’t have any bathrooms, so Basmajian, inspired by something he saw in Amsterdam, placed the “master bathroom and a lounge suite in the attic above my bedroom and another guest bathroom on the other side of the house for the two guest rooms. Being up there feels like a tree house”, he explained to the AD team.
The entire classic french residence is designed to be a contemporary style, timeless, and luxurious place with a touch of coziness. In the interior design, the color palette is based on an all-black color tone and its multiple natural shades. “I think the story here is all about texture and color.” Outside, the architectural structure the interior designer kept the original pale pink façade.
