An Explosion of Mid-Century Modern Design in a Monaco Apartment

The modern Monaco apartment decor you are about to be amazed by was signed by the young interior design duo of Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet. Together, they have created Grace. Grace is, of course, the luxurious apartment located in the Larvotto seafront of the principality of Monaco. With an interior design that mixes the glamour of the 1960s and the small and breezy details of a stunning coastal decor, the design duo created an explosion of mid-century modern design that will stay in your mind for months to come.

What the designers did was enjoy the combination of two apartments in a 1970’s building to work in a 380 square meter space with a 100 square meter balcony overlooking one of the most stunning views in the world. The result was an incredible space filled with colorful details, just like the two mid-century armchairs you can see on both the photos above and below.

Upholstered in velvet, with brass feet, the armchairs emphasize the elegance of the 1960s that is well represented across the home interior.

Romero is a lounge chair where the geometric sleek lines merge with comfort. It is inspired by the boldest side of modernism, featuring oblique armrests with a fully upholstered body in velvet.

The designers agreed that the project would reflect their “vision of the Riviera lifestyle,” with the objective that the final project be “timeless while exuding discreet luxury.” You will notice that, by focusing on achieving this, the designers have chosen to work with multiple tropical wallpapers that enhanced the natural qualities of the interior architecture. The one above is by Osborne & Little.

Humbert & Poyet mixed incredible examples of design furniture from France and Italy with contemporary and bespoke items, hitting their desired mark of “measured sobriety,” as they describe it.

The apartment’s design not only works because of the high-quality pieces that were chosen, but also because there are pops of colors pretty much everywhere, contrasting with the neutral background. A splash of yellow or green on a mid-century armchair or a unique wallpaper can go a long way.

Overall, the design works because everything was thought to make sense and to actually make a difference in the room it is placed. It is a refined mix of different styles, all of which have been blended to exude a somewhat quiet charisma that welcomes the family and their guests, while also inspiring them.
