Neat & Petite: Chic Storage in a Tiny Parisian Flat
French interior designer Marianne Evennou has a knack for color. Even for those of us on the Remodelista team for whom grey feels like a bold choice, Evennou has a way of making color look effortless: pairing rusts with pale greens, layering rooms in many shades of the same hue, using vibrant blues like others would a neutral. Colors for me are like musical notestheyre all good; you just have to adjust them to make a nice melody, Evennou told Margot in our piece Home at the Office: Designer Marianne Evennous Paris Work Quarters and Pied--Terre.
As it turns out, Evennou has the same deft, magic touch when it comes to designing small spaces. Our latest favorite? A postage stamp-sized apartment in the Marais, next to Paris famed March des Enfants Rouges market. For this, Evennou was charged with creating a sophisticated but usable pied terre for a Swiss art collector couple and their kids, all in 270 square feet. It hadnt been renovated for a long, long time, Evennou says. We kept the floor in the living room, with authentic tiles from the 18th century. The rest is not very authentic. Join us as we take a look inside.
