The dark taupe paint that Géraldine used as an accent on a single wall in her attic apartment in the 19th arrondissement gives the small room surprising depth.

The earthly color works nicely with the original wooden ceiling and wall beams and makes the white walls and bookcase look crisp. The color helps bring the eye down from the high slanted windows, making the space feel grounded and warm while sitting in the living room. For a full tour of Géraldine's flat, go here.
