Today I bring you to visit a small apartment in the Marais district in Paris, one of the most fashionable and vibrant areas of Paris.
The apartment, renovated by architect Maureen Karsenty for a young couple, is not, however, the classic Parisian Haussmannian apartment. The renovation was intended to give the apartment a mini loft allure, incorporating some industrial elements such as the glass partition wall, the brick wall (retrieving an original feature of the apartment) and the dark kitchen.
The renovation, eliminating the division of the spaces, allowed to also earn 3 sqm increasing from the 42 sqm of the original surface to the existing 45 sqm.
Even the colors palette and the style of furnishings help to create an original and not typical Parisian interior. The colors chosen are mainly the anthracite gray and the mustard yellow that make the environment warm and welcoming. The furnishings are a mix of modern and vintage-style, such as the luxurious mustard velvet chair.
In short, even if the apartment does not reflect entirely my beloved Haussmannian apartments (read my mini guide on how to create a Parisian interior), I must say that I really like it, perhaps because it has various elements that I love and that I have already talked about in the blog, like the black kitchen and industrial glass wall.
