Professional Project

Project by: Fanny Abbes
Location: Le Marais, Paris, France

Wishing you were in Paris this summer? If you can't take a flight there, you can at least look at subtly styled Parisian studios to quench your thirst for travel. And though there isn't a lot of room in this small space, there sure are some envy-inducing design details.

From the designer:

The challenge in this 30m2 (320 square feet) studio was to retain the quirkiness of the space whilst making it more practical. We decided to create an alcove bedroom with a half height wall to improve the general flow whilst keeping the apartment bright and airy.

A simple and monochromatic palette was used in the "utilitarian areas" (kitchen, bathroom) to let the ambient charm shine through. Most of the items are flea market finds (Paris, London, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue) but we mixed vintage with industrial pieces, and high street with designer, to create an overall more eclectic look.
