I spent all day yesterday indoors preparing for the eminent arrival of Hurricane Sandy. So between keeping up with the storm's track, catching up with a long list of recorded TV shows and constant snacking, I got around to getting my daily dose of design inspiration. That's when I spotted this stunning Parisian pad in the pages of The New York Times Magazine. After a year-long renovation, interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch turned this 70s inspired apartment into a chic and modern jewel with impressive 14-foot ceilings and breathtaking views of the river Seine. It is quite the place to enjoy the wonders of this dreamy French capital.
