This space in Paris 15th once housed office workers, typing away on their keyboards with outdated furnishings and garish décor to match. However, interior architect Margaux Carnevali from Neva Interior Design saw through the rundown office space and noticed potential. It wasn’t long before Nordican, a 20m2 studio apartment with beautiful soft tones was born.
Shapes and colors form a significant part of this studio apartment. Circles, ovals, and squares all feature quite boldly, with unique light shades and different perceptions of space adding to its appeal – all in the name of making the 20m2 area feel more substantial than it is.
The kitchen, dining, and living area are all in one area, but each space is entirely functional on its own.
Flowing seamlessly from the living and dining area is the kitchen, a beautiful little nook with patterned cement tiles, floor to ceiling Ikea linear storage, and a beautiful parquet-style feature wall to connect its style to that of the living and dining area.
The kitchen and dining area sits adjacent to the bedroom loft with a retractable ladder.
The living room offers a serene, calming feel courtesy of teal paneling, while the beautiful wood flooring adds a coastal flair into the mix as well. Adjacent sits a loft-style bedroom, with generous ceiling height and a retractable ladder that stays out of sight and out of mind during the day.
The bathroom, however, is the real standout area of this home. It features floor-to-ceiling tiling, a custom vanity unit, beautiful parquet flooring, and an Italian shower with micro-mosaic tiles.
Floor-to-ceiling bathroom tiling adds to the overall charm of this 20m2 studio apartment.
Everything has its place in the bathroom, making it seem more significant than it is.
