Designer Nikhil Mehra's favourite Airbnb properties in Paris

Immerse yourself in design heaven

The idea of living in a designer home is exciting, isn’t it? Being surrounded by carefully curated corners, exquisite wallpapers and custom furniture is enough to get any design-savvy traveller excited.

Celebrity designer Nikhil Mehra, one-half of couture label Shantanu-Nikhil, feels exactly the same. While his designs encapsulate a futuristic flavour in Indian wedding attires, his inspiration lies in the world that surrounds him. During Nikhil’s frequent travels, Airbnb remains his permanent travel companion. A muse that never ceases to inspire, travel enables him both to discover new places and also shape his unique approach to design.

For Nikhil, his home is his happy place. A sanctum of peace, Nikhil looks for homes that are simple and abundant in individuality. A vivid reflection of his personality, Nikhil’s recent Airbnb Home in Paris is the epitome of ‘less is more’. Bright, expansive nooks and stark white interiors, merge with tall Victorian ceilings, in this beautiful Parisian paradise. Taking a cue from Nikhil’s organic style, here are a few high-end designer homes in the heart of Paris, personally vetted by Nikhil himself:

Located in Paris center, in the heart of the famous "Le Marais" district, this original "Atelier" is close to any Paris tourist attraction. This apartment was a genuine Sewing Atelier during 1970'. It has been completely restored keeping the Parisian spirit "Eiffel style". The Atelier is located in a courtyard, very quiet and completely safe. You will love the design of this unique Atelier with "Eiffel style" and the beautiful glass roof.
