Living in an old little store

Delphine Pariente, jewelry designer, decided to settle down in a nice little shop in the Marais. Vintage furniture, antique curiosities, unique pieces repurposed as tables, large letters hanging on the wall, console style Eiffel found on e-bay, Asian lanterns, theater seating, ancient sculpture stairs and floors by old handmade ceramic tiles ....
All those elements create a really beautiful home with an artistic touch!

Living Room: Floor to Ceiling Windows

I love so much  the floor to ceiling windows!!! They allow the sun light to warm the place and  they give us the impression that the surroundings is an extension of our living room. I am dreaming of a future home with a big ceiling high window which will offers me a breathtaking view to the sea....

Black & White Living Room

A bright and fresh living room.... I like the use of white color as a canvas with a touch of black in some furniture and decorative items. You are blessed if you have a living room with such a big window which allows the sun to fill the space with its warmth and light. 
Then, with simple furniture, a lot of inspiration and some accessories you can transform the room to a wonderful living room. A cozy white sofa with an ottoman is ideal for relaxing after a hard day, a simple black rustic coffee table with a tray on it, full of aromatic candles and a vase with fresh flowers to create a romantic atmosphere, a handmade wool stripped kelim to keep you warm and a black & white  "LOVE" pillow to remind you that love is everything in our life!!! :)
Do you like black & white combination? Look here to find more.

Mexican Bathroom

What a lovely bathroom! Its design is far away from the usual... All the surfaces are covered with cement, except the master wall of shower which is lined with pebbles. The sink constitutes a particular point of interest as it is a repurposed trough from a local farmer. It even has a notch where the little lambs used to drink with the bigger sheep. It is really so lovely.... I would like to have a similar bathroom in my future home!
For another exceptional bathroom have a look here

Elegant Living Room

A simple in design yet elegant living room which inspires you to spend a lot of hours sitting in its comfortable sofa watching a movie or drinking a coffee with your friends. It is also the right place to read your book sitting in one of the two Barcelona white chairs in front of the enormous window which allows the daylight to illuminate the room. During the night the atmosphere becomes more dramatic as the wooden roof's spotlight lighten the dark grey painted walls. Another beautiful piece is the tree stump coffee table which gives a rustic touch to the otherwise contemporary design of the space.

Living in the Attic

One of my dreams is to have a home with an attic in order to make there my bedroom.... I feel that is the most beautiful room of the house and if you are lucky enough to have a large attic, you can organize there a lovely living room full of sun light and gifted with a beautiful view! 
I loved immediately the living room of the first picture as it looked so cozy to me. I found pretty neat the combination of cement and warm materials such as sheep skins, fluffy pillows, and the tree stump coffee table. 
I was also mad about the glass roof of the third picture living room. It is so bright and you can exploit the sunlight throughout the day. Look at the detail of the hand painted contour rug!
Finally, I could stay a lot of hours in the couch of the fourth, totally white attic gazing at that breathtaking sea view!!! Love also the detail of the hand made kelim and the wooden rough coffee table.

Bedroom: Rustic & Raw

Is there any warmer material than wood? I think it is perfect as a wall covering in a bedroom as it offers firstly an excellent insulation and then adds a touch of romance in the room! Especially if you have a winter house in the mountain where temperature is very low during the most months of the year it would be the right choice. In order to create a rustic bedroom prefer to use raw boards of wood or some tree trunks in your wall covering. A simple idea is to use the boards of old wooden pallets.

Kitchen: Simple yet beautiful

A beautiful kitchen with a thrifty modern design can be transformed into something special if you add some special elements. By adding some brass details and a wooden counter top  the simple white kitchen can become into a centerpiece of the house. I loved the counter top's side finish.... Isn't it lovely?
