A PRECIOUS PARISIAN JEWEL

It's hard to believe this fabulosity-packed apartment is only 430 square feet. Home to interior designer Charlotte Vauvillier, this Parisian flat is tastefully decorated with a delicious mix of mid-century pieces and custom made furniture. One of its amazing features is the clean and clever storage solutions in the living area. But of course, that gorgeous kitchen is the pièce de résistance with that amazing floor tile and stunning gray, yellow and blue color combo. Undoubtedly, Charlotte lives in a small jewel worth drooling for. Wouldn't you say? Happy weekend!

LEANING BEAUTY

I'm always in constant search of innovative pieces of furniture for my projects. Especially when working in small spaces where I need to get creative and make the most of the limited square footage. So scoring multi-functional pieces is always a good thing. Take for instance the Lean Man Side — a smart looking side table/bookshelf designed by Frank Flavell. Its slim and minimalist design makes it ideal as a night stand or side table. I guess I hit the jackpot!

FOR THE LOVE OF BIKES

Apart from being a fun source of transportation, the bicycle has become a chic lifestyle accessory both on the road and at home—particulary in small dwellings where, because of the lack of space, it's forced to blend in with the decor. As a result, tons of clever solutions for stylishly storing bikes have been sprouting about in the marketplace. One of my most recent finds is the Kappô, a rack/storage combo that perfectly combines form and function. It was created by a Berlin-based team of avid cyclists, designers, and collectors that have taken it upon themselves to develop bicycle furniture that meet the highest standards of functionality, individuality, and design. What's great about the Kappô it's that it makes a clear statement in the room, even when the bike is not hanging on the wall. Love it's simpliicity and clean design!

SMALL & SMART

Talk about making the most out of a small space. Interior designer Jimmy Schönning knocked down some walls and reconfigure the layout of his tiny 376 square-foot studio to better fit his needs. By converting what used to be the old kitchen into a small bedroom and moving the kitchen to the hallway, Jimmy was able to create a more convenient flow for his charming pad. He was also smart to preserve the old kitchen cabinets and use them as extra storage above his custom-designed headboard. And of course, the space also benefited by the use of white and mirrors, giving the apartment a bright and airy feeling. Another clever solution to making a small home seem larger, is to keep the color palette to a minimum—something he achieved beautifully by only using white, black and wood accents. Here's yet another proof that style also comes in small packages.

CHANGING EXPECTATIONS

I've always been an advocate of mixing and matching when designing a room, particularly pieces from different eras and styles that can be repurposed. Coincidently, I just came across a wonderful space that's a perfect example of that. When German designer Addy Kapic was hired to decorate a penthouse, one of his client's requests was to have a dressing room that could turn into a guest room for his visitors. For all the right reasons, this is Addy's favorite room in the whole apartment, as it displays clever storage solutions and unexpected touches that make it that more special.

BRILLIANT INGENUITY

I've come across many multi-functional, space-saver pieces of furniture, but this slick desk is one of my favorites. Deskbox is a brilliant wall-mounted desk/cabinet unit designed by Israel-born, UK-based designers Yael Mer and Shay Akalay of Raw Edges studio for Dutch furniture company Arco. It has a retraction system that allows it to easily open and reveal a comfortable work space, and close to its original compact form. Either way, it's a beautiful piece of furniture.
