A Small Bohemian Apartment in Paris
Let’s add a little French bohemian style to your day. Interior stylist Aude Joli Jour has created the perfect bohemian apartment in Paris.
Aude’s apartment is only 44 square meter, but every inch has been so beautifully designed that you don’t miss anything.
The living room is a combined living, dining and work area. With large windows overlooking the quiet courtyard. You hardly believe you’re in the center of Paris when you look outside these windows.
The tree walls in the living room all have (a different) wallpaper. Behind the seating area Aude put a beautiful soft lanscape wallpaper by Ananbô.
The sofa is actually made of bedframes that she dressed up with fabrics and load of pillows in pink and mustard yellow colors.
(mustard yellow is a beautiful bright and warm color touch for your home, you can see more of that here).
The office space in the living room is simple. Just a couple of green shelves hanging on the wall. But by adding books, decorative objects and vintage art Aude created a cozy look.
The wallpaper is by Le Monde Sauvage and the vintage rattan chairs complete this boho workspace. (for more tips on how to create a home office in a small space, you can take a look at this blog post)
I’m truly in love with this dining space. Open doors leading to the green courtyard, a beautiful fireplace, a rustic wooden dining table with vintage rattan chairs and to make the look complete loads of flowers.
The floral wallpaper behind the dining table is Anémone by Midbec
Contrary to what you might think, it’s absolutely a good idea to use dark colors in a tiny room. Aude’s kitchen shows that.
Aude added a beautiful wallpaper by Au Fil des Couleurs and linen curtains to hide clutter.
Because the kitchen is so small it is very clever not to use upper cabinets which will make it feel even smaller.
To hide the (not too pretty) white tile floor, Aude added a vinyl floor mat by Beija Flor (super clever if you live in a rental aparment like Aude).
The bedroom is kept relatively calm. No wallpaper here but very colorful bedding to add warmth and brightness to the room.
And let’s face it, when your room has beautiful elements like this one with the fireplace, wooden floor and ceiling ornaments, your room doens’t need much decor.
Aude is lucky to have a ground floor apartment, so with nice weather she can extend her living room in the green courtyard. Isn’t it great that you can find this in the center of Paris?
