A FREMANTLE office was transformed into a beautiful Parisian-style apartment for just a few hours, just for the fun of it.

Interior designer Nickolas Gurtler turned the usual workspace of PR agency Detail into a fully-furnished Parisian themed apartment, complete with bedroom, dining room and living room.

Mr Gurtler said when he first visited the office, he was immediately reminded of a small boutique he once visited on Avenue Montaigne in Paris and was struck with the urge to bring some of that French feel to Fremantle.

“I imaged the space as a pied-a-terre on Avenue Montaigne, where a fabulous French couple would spend the weekends, partying the night away in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres quarter before retiring to their apartment,” he said.

“I wanted to showcase how a space can be transformed by an interior designer, the power of furniture and art, and to engage with the Perth community to get them excited about the possibilities of interior design.

“I often say that design is like cooking; one wrong ingredient can ruin a dish, and I find it is the same in any interior space.

“Each piece I selected was carefully curated from a variety of options, judging how it would complement or contrast with the other pieces in the space.”
