Welcome to another edition of â€˜Mon Petit Appartement Ã Parisâ€™ â€“ the 2011 edition.
For our Paris vacation this year, we stayed in Le Marais again, in a lovely and much quieter area close to Le Marche des Enfants Rouges.
The apartment is in a delightful old building with an enclosed green courtyard, itâ€™s on the fourth floor, with red spiral stairs and a tiny lift.
Itâ€™s a small and comfortable place; the living/kitchen/dinning area is split from the bedroom on another level.
I really love the layout and dÃ©cor of this little apartment. While the last place was playful and colourful, this place feels grown up; minimalist and decorated with African art and figurines.
And best of all, it has everything one needs for that â€˜home away from homeâ€™ feeling.
The view from the living room windows.
The neighbourhood is filled with cafÃ©s and trendy boutiques all in splendid architecture.
The living and kitchen area on the main floor.
What a great idea to use old round hatboxes as bedside tables, I might copy this myself.
Up the attic, landing, bathroom and closet space
Old Louis Vuitton trunk as a coffee table, another neat storage idea.
