From Shabby to Chic

I always find satisfaction when I'm able to give something old and shabby my own touch and turn it into something unique. Julia Jeuvell and Tom Budding have beautifully done just that in this loft-like space in Paris. The whole place is decorated with second-hand pieces they have bought in flea markets or just found on the streets. The couple believes everything looks good in white, that's why their palette is mostly white and beige. Even their books are covered with brown wrapping paper so they blend in with their decor. It might seem like they spent a lot of money in their lighting fixtures, but in all honesty they were purchased in Paris's Chinatown. So why break the bank when you can create a super chic environment with a little imagination and a couple of gallons of white paint? Avoir un grand week-end!

Oh, I love this place. All the white used has a calming effect. It's gorgeous! x
