This beautiful old apartment had the advantage of avoiding the classic Haussmann floor plan with an entrance gallery, living rooms facing the street and a long corridor. The living rooms on the street and courtyard all communicate with each other, giving the whole ensemble a vast exposure to sunlight. By pushing back the dining room walls, Camille Hermand succeeded in including a large, convivial kitchen. It is the centerpiece of the apartment, with its walnut facades, its dark paint in contrast with the granite of the worktop. All that remained was to arrange the colors to mark everyone's territory and highlight its functions: dark blue for access to the children's rooms, separated from the white living rooms by a glass door. The atmosphere is cheerful and arty, supported by the choice of curvaceous designer furniture. Photos © Agathe Tissier.
