Making a house a home is not such an easy task, especially for newly weds, as it means marrying space, furniture, art, wedding kits etc. along with meaningful and often personal memories.

We thus reached out to luxury pied-à-terre specialist A+B Kasha for their take on an “ideal” checklist to help newly weds choosing a future home.

Here are three simple steps:

1  Choose a space that corresponds to your lifestyle in a location, that makes you feel home.

2  Select materials, which reflect your dream living space.

3  Pick standout “investment pieces” that you can build on. This helps anchoring your style for your future life à deux.

“Everyone dreams of a second home and some dream of a second home in Paris”.  This is what motivated Betsy and Alon Kasha to create A+B Kasha, The Art of the Pied-a-terre  ten years ago.  Their overall goal is relatively modest: to identify the “right” apartments, re-design the space in keeping with the original architectural integrity, incorporate modern living amenities. Their properties are in great demand by newly weds or couples simply realizing a dream…

Now, a decade later, with over seventy properties to their credit, A+B Kasha has evolved into a full-fledged designer, developer, real estate agency, that also manages properties for current or future clients in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood of Paris’ “Left Bank” – A real turn key solution.

When Betsy, Alon and their team set out to create the perfect living space, no detail is left to chance.  From creating the optimal floor plan and choosing the perfect renovation materials to acquiring the last cushion, object or lamp needed to complete a project, they design each space as they would design it for themselves. A great launch pad of sorts, for young married couples.

The discerning clientele beseeching A+B Kasha’s services are very sensitive to the “final touch”. Be it bed linen, home fragrance, bed covers or the type of throws that decorate a sofa or that favourite arm chair in a living room, trust is placed on Betsy and Alon’s ability to source the best.

Betsy notes : “Our business is actually quite personal.  Our properties are like our babies…we work hard to make them the best they can be, and look for the buyer who will appreciate the apartment just as we have created it.  Our clients share our style and lifestyle aesthetic. Happily for us, our clients often become friends, forming an A+B Kasha family of sorts.”

Alon adds : For the most part, our clients also share our obsession for excellence.  They expect the best.  We are very conscientious about using authentic materials for the design finishes, such as old wooden floors, old-style windows, architectural details and hardware.”

“We then marry the space with the furniture by selecting pieces that are harmonious with the renovation”, says Betsy.

For its chic, comfortable style and natural, soft materials one of their favourite home brands is Caravane (Selena bed linen). They also love contemporary Belgian bed linen purveyor, Libeco.

Betsy’s personal “must have” home accessory is the soft throw blanket.  Every bedroom and sitting area should be equipped with a soft throw or two (or three!), the more luxurious the better!  My favourites are by Kajaal, especially the Extra Cashmere one!”
