1. Attic refitted in parental suite
When the owners moved into their Villa in the department of Tarn-et-Garonne, they immediately embarked on the Attic renovation. But they were far from suspecting the magnitude of the work, which lasted almost a year! Broken beams, wobbly floor, total absence of insulation, loose stones... everything had to be redone under the eaves. Once the job is done, the couple enjoysa large parental suite decorated in his image. The mowed floor was replaced by a new floor, the unstable stones gave way to repainted paneling and white walls, and the exposed beams have been sublimated. Result? The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom welcome Sandra and her husband into a country and bucolic atmosphere.

The tips of this transformation? Low furniturelike this suspended washbasin, to fit the sloping ceiling of the room, and an island bath installed at an angle to not lose space. The loft wall and the beams have been painted white for weaken the impression of narrowness, and the tiled floor goes up on one of the walls of the pond to create an impression of intimist alcove.

5. An attic transformed into a loft
In this former attic, the architect Aurélie Nicolas has made the choice to develop a large open space, like a loft. Here, all the pieces communicate and partitions do not exist. Bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom are fully open ... semi-walls, openwork dividers and storage elements allow to keep a little privacy between different spaces. The absence of dividing walls and the light colors chosen in the decoration allow the old attic to light up and look bigger.
