i could live here : a remodeled roof-top flat in paris.
by french by design comment


hello, si from the french by design blog here. Today, in this regular “i could live here” series, we’re heading to paris, france. attachez vos ceintures* and bon voyage!

oh, now that’s another place i could easily live in! this is the home of isabelle, matthieu, and their 4-year-old son, arsène. isabelle and her companion are both architects, and transformed the abandoned attic of an old covent in the heart of the city of lights into a cosy interior, thanks to a dark color palette and a few brilliant interior design ideas. isabelle drew the front door, the staircase, the living room teak bookcase and the fireplace to name a few, and local artisans and craftsmen let their magic hands to the rest. little arsène can therefore enjoy sleeping in a dream-come-true wooden cabin-bed in his bedroom. now, how seriously cool is this?

  1. J’adore! I have used the same palette of colors in my apartment in Paris and I love the cozy atmosphere it gives to a place. Mention spéciale for Arsène’s room :)

  2. Love the look of the place, but do those stair actually have no outside railing with a 4yr old in the house? It would make me insane with worry. Looks to be a 10ft drop to a hard floor near the top.
