A Paris studio apartment by The New Design Project

I can't get enough of The New Design Project's work. I spotted this beauty (located in Le Marais, Paris) on their site and had to share it as well. The perfect little Parisian hangout. The challenge in this 30m2 (320ft2) studio was to retain the quirkiness of the space whilst making it more practical. We decided to create an alcove bedroom with a half height wall to improve the general flow whilst keeping the apartment bright and airy. A simple and monochromatic palette was used in the "utilitarian areas" (kitchen, bathroom) to let the ambient charm shine through. Most of the items are flea market finds (Paris, London, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue) but we mixed vintage with industrial pieces, and high street with designer, to create an overall more eclectic look.

Stalking the imperfect

A house and a tiny apartment. Both perfectly imperfect. Yes there are gaps and cracks. White paint unites disparate surfaces and eras. Art draws the eye. Style and personality and something I can't put my finger on. The frisson of wabi sabi? One thing I do know. There are not enough photos! I need to see more. The first house is in Avalon with the link here. The second is a bijou home in Potts Point. Who needs a sofa when friends can gather round your table. Link here while it lasts.
