Originally this space had been a stable in the Place des Vosges. My grandmother and her second husband redesigned the space into what you see now. Essentially it's a giant living space downstairs with a loft that holds the bathroom and 2 bedrooms.
Her use of white and shelves and shelves of books are 2 of the components that make me feel at home. I love that she has her collections all around without it feeling (to me) too cluttered or overwhelming. There's a certain haphazard nature that feels very comfortable about her home. She's also never been concerned about what other people were doing, keeping her focus on surrounding herself with things that make her happy.
