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.

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

Marianne led Pauline to use samples of paintings to paint her concrete floor
