This Minimal Paris Apartment is the Stuff Dreams Are Made Of

Minimal Paris Apartment by Paris Architecture

Whoa. Who knew 600 sq. ft. could look so cool. The long and narrow minimal Paris apartment designed by Septembre Architecture features original period charm in an edited and modernized setting. The minimal grey and marble kitchen is framed with period mouldings.

Even though much of the apartment is open space, each “room” is delimited by a different floor: grey cement in the kitchen, original hardwood in the living area, terrazzo in the office, white painted hardwood in the bedroom, and an adorable black and white patterned hexagon tile floor in the bathroom. In the bedroom, the closet was camouflaged behind a floating wall that doubles as a headboard. A sliding barn door separates the bedroom from the living quarters.

But perhaps the most impressive feature of this apartment is in the bathroom, which is a stunner it itself: while at first glance it may appear to have a his-and-hers double vanity, the trompe l’oeil is actually created by a full wall mirror, which reflects not only the bathroom vanity, but the entire apartment beyond. Genius.

    Sorry – it looks bare and barren. For goodness sakes hang some art in there. Hate the look.

    They did a beautiful job with the space restrictions. Love the simpleness and minimal styling. I have never lived in an apartment, but this makes it seem to not be so bad.

    The combination of white, wood and black is magnificent! Despite the minimal design, this apartment really looks lived in.
