the age of design

super chouette

we once lived in a chambre de bonne in the 17th arrondissement of paris.  the room was not lacking in charm: its own tiny bathroom (a true luxury), typically french casement windows leading onto a petit section of rooftop, and a view of the arc de triomphe and la dame de fer. not to brag, but it was lovelier than many and luckier than most.

this rendition from elle decoration trumps our bobo aerie in the design department, however.  note the sleek cabinets for storing bric-a-brac out of sight, combined with a warm, earthy color palette to keep things cozy.

not bad for 134 square feet… though we are guessing this arrangement includes a toilette that is not en suite, but across the hall.  how authentic!
