Rethinking the space to make it more functional: this was the mission of Sophie Ferjani, a deco and interior design coach, who unveils her ideas and tips to make this two-room apartment a pleasant and open space.
1. Remove partitions to redistribute volumes
Below: the plan of the apartment before
My mission was to redistribute volumes night / work / meals and reception from the 2 main rooms of this apartment of 45m ² located in the north of Paris. It seemed obvious to remove the partition separating the room from the living room, but it was still necessary to find a space preserved for each function in this open space.
2. After: a completely open apartment
I kept the location of the kitchen but completely transformed it using a beautiful line of white lacquered furniture (Ikea) and a matching central island that also serves as a large dining table. Behind the living room and the office. Large shelves have naturally found their place on each side of the fireplace for various storage, which frees up the floor space. Finally, the night space is nestled in an alcove ...
3. A decor with a nomadic spirit for this 45 m²
There was an alcove in the apartment that had to be added as an element of decoration by the old owners and that at the beginning let us be puzzled: it was a little kitsch style with its added beams, it was a strong element the place but not really contemporary ... I finally decided to place the raised bed on a platform and play thoroughly the map of accumulation and trailer style and fetishist.
The walls have been painted in bright colors, we played with prints of very rich floral and varied fabrics and the back wall is dedicated to the hanging.
The entrance door and the sleeping area can be hidden behind a large sliding "S" curtain on a rail so that once closed, we find ourselves in a very clean and white universe, mixing a Haussmannian structure with its Hardwood floors and moldings and contemporary furniture with clean lines and white lacquer.
