An old shop hidden away in a courtyard of the 10th arrondissement in Paris has been transformed into the warm and welcoming home. Architect Stephanie Lizée reworked the space for family life, only preserving the century-old staircase in the heart of the house and the living room floor. I love the striking contrast between white walls and white ceilings with beams and black wooden floors, which make a perfect background for various eclectic pieces: a mix of modern and retro furniture, souvenirs, books, objects from antique shops. The black and white mix is warmed up with natural wooden shades of furniture and colorful accessories. A Berber carpet from Morocco, Chinese souvenirs, a table made from an ancient Chinese pagoda door – all these finds make the home really personalized and eye-catching.
