Who doesn’t need an oasis of peace and relaxation to get rid of everyday stress? In this case, an attic apartment could be a great choice.  The key to great interior design when it comes to small spaces is being able to use the same space for more than one purpose. In this top floor apartment, the designers have been able to do just that. Architect Margaux Beja centered Apartment Saint Paul around the unfinished beams that span the apartment. She created contrast by using modern elements such as a steel and glass wall, which separates the living areas from the bright bedroom. Located in Le Marais, a historic district in Paris, this charming attic apartment was reimagined to combine its original character with fresh, contemporary style. The balance of rustic and modern was accomplished by incorporating raw materials and a neutral color palette. A skylight just above the work space is perfectly inspiring. Contemporary furnishings in black, wood and neutral tones add a minimalistic appeal. Constructed of solid walnut panels, the wooden wall adds both warmth and an industrial vibe to the main living space.The result is a comfortable space that gives equal attention to the architecture of the historic building and the modernism of the furnishings. his attic apartment is a true exercise in making the most of a smallish living space, without compromising style.
