Nimporte has done a fabulous job making a comfortable and fully featured home, Studio de 39m2 (430 sq²), in such a compact space. Raw brick walls on two sides are great for texture and ambiance while the central white walls add lots of visual space.
We won’t be getting lost in this apartment, but it’s still a good idea to view a floor plan to help orient yourself. It’s easy to see how well-planned the spaces are.
Step inside (blue arrow above) and you’ll quickly see how the layout works in 3D. Mirrors, like the one to the left of the bedroom doorway, are always a great way to add visual room to a small space. Nimporte has also used an indoor window between the bureau and the bathroom doorway, on the right, for even more inside light and reflective surfaces.
Look to the left and you can appreciate the cozy and inviting living room setup.
Look to the right and you’ll find the kitchen close at hand. It’s laid out logically to allow all the expected kitchen appliances and some space for casual dining too.
The bathroom is on the left and has space for a double sink plus everything you would expect.
Using a glass shower enclosure makes a big difference to keep an open feeling. There’s plenty of storage on the walls. Keeping the units off the floor helps the room feel bigger.
Once you’re back out in the kitchen, notice the black dining table for three on the left and over to the right, just beyond the clock, you’ll see the bedroom doorway. Let’s go take a look.
This is great! A comfy four-poster bed, storage and a home office space too.
There’s even more storage on the other side of the bed. Artwork and decorations help make the room more inviting.
White walls and storage units with reflective surfaces help brighten the whole room. The wood accents on the storage unit look great with the brick wall. Curtains add yet another texture to balance the smooth surfaces and the roughness of the brick.
The chair and love seat look so comfortable. Let’s sit and relax a little. Now that we know where everything is we can feel right at home.
It’s your turn!
