  1. Interesting how they left the old wallpaper, and didn’t finish the plaster in other places. As we were renovating our apartments, I was tempted to leave the rough plaster, too. But now I’m glad we painted. It works in this charming place because of the relaxed, boho vibe.

    1. Yes, @Taste of France, I think that the bold choice of keeping old features such as wallpaper leftovers, French tomette tiles or old wall plasters add authenticity and character to the space and gives it its bohemian chic vibe. What a fantastic renovation!

  2. Incredible place! They did such a nice rennovation in only two years.
    Indeed that is really interesting that they left pieces of old wall paper or directly naked walls.

    Did they made furniture with old wine boxes? Love it!

    I wish we could see it from the outside!
