This small Parisian studio apartment is an explosion of vibrant colors

When Barbara and Quentin first saw a 33m² apartment in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the Moulin Rouge, they fell in love. It was everything they could want and more, but it still had more potential than it was letting on.

It also required color – and lots of it. Quentin and Barbara enlisted the help of Neva interior design Margaux Carnevali, and they had their work cut out for them. The brief was anything but simple. The apartment had to be industrial but tropical, original but exotic, and colorful but hipster. It also had to gel together and that was no easy feat.
