Pauline’s tiny Parisian apartment

This beautiful Parisian apartment is a result of bartering between two friends. Pauline designed Marianne Evennou’s website and e-shop while Marianne helped Pauline find the essence of her home, a small (25 m2/ 269 ft2) attic apartment. The creative couple removed the old ceiling and walls, painted the floor and rearranged the space.

Pauline wanted the kitchen to be as spacious as possible and feature a bar

The wooden staircase over the kitchen counter leads to the loft bed and a reading nook. It was painted grey to match the rest of the interior

Giant floor cushions add a bohemian feel to a living room and are great alternatives to chairs if space is scarce.
