Isabelle’s home – 18m2
Paris 9e, 2015
From a banal flat, whose only assets are its location in a nice area of the 9th district and a beautiful building, we have created a very personal interior which is dressed in dark colours – khaki and brown – to play with the light. The kitchen, too small to pretend to be its own room, opens onto the living room and has been designed like a painting with its black frame and the staging of the crockery thanks to the large locker and the cubes. The desk area offers storage under the worktop and some shelves for books and objects. The bench seat can be transformed into a 180 cm wide bed at night. And the works are displayed on a picture rail running along the wall.
The antique mirror on the console reflects the Parisian roofs to give depth to the living room. The entrance with its storage space and hooks allows you to get rid of the outside life to find an inner harmony. The walls, curtains and tiles are covered with a brown thread to give a little more relief to the colours. And the corridor floor is transformed into an imaginary carpet painted in trompe l’oeil in the colours of the wall. The play of light, the intensity of the colours and the perspectives are reminiscent of Flemish paintings.
A delicate and poetic hut.
