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
The ladder leads to the reading nook and the loft bed

The reading nook is also used as a guest bed.
The office has closets covered with curtains on both sides
The small wall-mounted vase is from the French company Merci
Giant floor cushions add a bohemian feel to a living room and are great alternatives to chairs if space is scarce.
A cozy and colourful seating area
Marianne led Pauline to use samples of paintings to paint her concrete floor
