A Private Home in Paris by Julie Rosier

French architect Julie Rosier completed a new private home in Paris that consisted of redeveloping a duplex in the 14th district of the city. Adding her dose of creativity, the interior was revamped and upgraded and turned completely upside down.

The kitchen and living rooms have been moved to the upper floor, while the bedroom and bathroom were relocated to the ground floor. The kitchen now is partially hidden behind a built-in box with graphical appeal.

The grey squares and rectangles, on top of a yellow base, were inspired by Mondrian and the design now brings visual interest to the often ignored staircase.

Small yellow windows help bring light to the small kitchen hidden behind the box.

What’s behind the box? The kitchen with really cool tiny tiles in black and primary colors, paired with black countertops and a white sink.

The living room is quite simple, with white walls, a rust-colored sectional sofa, and linear bookshelves on the wall.
