Perfume and fashion heiress Pauline Rochas and partner Carole Beaupré, the impossibly chic and creative photographer couple who currently own this 2,082-square-foot, one-bedroom-plus-office in Williamsburg’s Mill Building at 85 North Third Street, have listed the fashionably renovated loft for $2.585 million.

Ms. Rochas is the granddaughter of the late Hélène Rochas, stylish socialite, perfumer and wife of couturier Marcel Rochas; she and Ms. Beaupré run a photography studio, Coolife, that specializes in shooting still-life beauty images for brands like Chanel and Ralph Lauren, and collaborated on a line of perfumes (h/t LLNYC). The pair purchased the home for $940,000 in 2007 and have since elevated it to a level of polished north Brooklyn cool befitting their lifestyle as well as their neighborhood.

Though the second-floor loft has an open floor plan and 12-foot ceilings, oversized windows, original timber beams and Y post columns, the interior decor is more reserved than raw.

Restored wide plank flooring and white walls are a good frame for tones that range from black and chrome to white and cream.

A spicy tomato-tinted wall adds major style to a down-to-business gourmet kitchen with high end appliances and custom cabinetry.

The en-suite master bedroom boasts a walk-in closet; an additional interior room can be used as a home office or another bedroom. Next to the bedroom is an enclosed laundry/storage area, a second full bath and a hall closet.

Unlike many loft buildings, the Mill Building is no stranger to modern luxury amenities, which include a 24-hour concierge, a common roof deck, on-site parking, private storage, bike room and more.
