One of the places in the world we'd most like to live? This sophisticated and soulful Paris loft designed by Régis Larroque , giant green cupboard included. Located on Passage Charles Dallery in the 11e, the apartment was completed back in 2006, but is timeless—and alluring. Look no further for warm minimalism with a French accent. Photographs from   RL Interior Architecture . Above: A streamlined cupboard divides the entry from the main living space, and serves as an alternative to a built-in front closet. Régis Larroque is a sought-after Paris designer of shops and showrooms—for Hermes and Nina Ricci, among others—and his display and space-planning skills translate well in a residential setting. Above: A shelf-like shallow stone sink extends off the green cupboard and is a companion to a powder room near the entry. Above: The dining area is decorated with a collage of 19th century studio portraits clustered in an arresting cloud-like arrangement. Above: A bedroom opens off the dining area; to maintain the lofty feel of the space, the door opening are extra wide (but there are sliding wood pocket doors for privacy). Above: Cartwheels, anyone? The vast main space has rug-free pale wood floors, slim metal columns, and a wall of windows. Above: A black leather sofa with tapered wooden legs and a fireplace anchor the living area. Above: A petite daybed is invitingly situated under the tall windows. Above: The master bed is invitingly layered with pale pastel sheets and linen-covered pillows. Above: The bedroom doubles as a home office. Above: Outside the master bedroom, an ensemble of black leather seating surrounds the fireplace. Above: A wall of open shelves extends for nearly the length of the long room. Above: To accommodate a variety of books and objects, the shelves are built in two heights. Above: A curved hall off the front entry leads to the kitchen. Above: An antique table contrasts with the streamlined custom cabinetry, which is hardware-free and rests on a recessed base, so that it appears to be floating. Above: The wood flooring shifts to polished stone in the kitchen.  Above: A compact refrigerator with a clear glass door is incorporated into the cabinetry.  Above: The breakfast table adds a sunniness to the setting. Glassic globe lights are used throughout the loft as pendants and standing lamps. Above: A guest bedroom off the kitchen has a seamless wall of closets. The clean setting showcases a chair and globe light both made of wirework. Above: An all-encompassing grid of white tiles with gray grout in the guest room's companion bath.   Above: The loft's floor plan delineates the central placement of the dining table; the bedrooms occupy the two ends of the space.
