Small Interiors

A Timeless Town House of 200 m ² in Bois Colombes, Paris

Up, Up and Away

Small duplex apartment

Bois-Colombes is a suburb in the northern part of western Paris, France, about 9 km from the centre of the city. It is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe and space is at a premium. This new town house was designed both architecturally and interior wise by Camille Hermand Architects, a firm of designers headed up by Camile Hermand and based in Paris.

I think it is an inspiration and I hope you get some great ideas of how to use creative design in a small space. The overall space in which she worked turned out to be 200 m ². Not much, but in this neck of the woods – a fair sized living area.

And a garden and tree.

Three storeys with a basement and a place to sit outside and quaff wine. Bliss.

Nothing is contrived in this home

It all looks as though it has been there for a long time and the eclectic collection of antique and modern furniture and accessories all have a special place in the home. It is not “over-decorated” – a fine line to not step over ever.

Add in some modern mobile lighting and paint the walls whiter than white.

Timeless, elegant and put together with a dash of French panache.


Oh for a small place in Paris.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me
