Maison Noire


Rosko Family Design


Rosko Family Design

Located in Paris, this two-level duplex boasts a design which tells a story of flowers and modern art woven on a tapestry of tradition. Embodying sophistication and chic as indeed only the French can, I’ve fallen head over heels for this Parisian apartment’s dark moody color palette and rich velour accents. Welcome to Maison Noire.

Upon entering this Parisian apartment, black paneled walls make for a dramatic and unforgettable entrance. Anatoliy and Katerina Rosko, the duo behind the design of the apartment, explain that dark walls were chosen specifically to “create an atmosphere of intimacy and inclusion.” Large windows and neutral accents help to lift the darkness, ensuring that the space feels altogether bright and airy.

In the living room of this Parisian apartment hangs a vintage tapestry – a replica, in fact, of a family relic that has been passed down from generation to generation. The tapestry formed the basis of the design of the apartment, dictating its unique color palette and abundance of floral details. At the same time, interwoven à la mode details, such as contemporary art and unexpected materials, give the home an overall modern vibe.

Here, an imitation fireplace and h velour seating create an atmosphere of comfort and warmth. The space is equally suitable for a cozy family night in or an elegant cocktail party.

One of my favorite parts of this Parisian apartment is without a doubt the dining area. I especially love the concrete feature wall where hand painted frescoes of peonies add a bohemian touch to the industrial-chic.

Wreaths are not just for Christmas. In fact, the decorative ring is integral to every Rosko design project. In Maison Noire, a surprisingly vibrant, berry adorned wreath complements the abstract wall art. Take note and keep the humble wreath in mind as a budget-friendly alternative to an ornate mirror or pricey painting.


Overall, in designing Maison Noir the Roskos were able to work with their favorite aesthetic – traditional classic embellished with modern details. The result? A timeless home filled with unexpected components and intriguing details. In other words, a home truly befitting of the city of style.
