The interiors this 90m2 apartment of from the 1930s were imagined to refer to those years, not to be ‘over-designed’, and although thoroughly renovated, were still meant to give the impression of having been decorated for years. A large open living space replaced the small rooms, and a comfortable glass-topped graphic (black, white) decorated bathroom replaced its dark and uncomfortable predecessor. Lots of works of art, books and posters create a colorful counterbalance to the rather monochromatic colors of the interior. The materials – a distinct cherry veneer of the closet, wood painted with a roller, herringbone parquet – were intended to emphasize the context of the place and its elegance. Many pieces of furniture and accessories (including the non-obvious colorful and rusty boxes replacing the upper cabinets of the kitchen) were brought from the Parisian antique market in Porte de Clignancourt. They fitted well into the space, as did the original vintage pieces and the vintage-inspired new elements.
