Modern minimal Japanese plywood kitchen with white worktop and wall tiles

Paris Minimal

Private Apartment, Paris

A city retreat inspired by Japanese simplicity and minimalism.

Old oak doors on a cobbled back street in Paris, lead up a winding wooden staircase to a dark dusty apartment, uninhabited for nine years. Studio Hazeldean transformed this into a calm oasis in the heart of the bustling city.

'I would most definitely and without hesitation recommend your interior design service.

You possess the great ability to instinctively understand what a client envisages.
Then make subtle suggestions and intelligent design choices, with great attention to detail.

Your space planning is ingenious.
You skilfully navigated the challenges of an unconventional property.

The best part was the sense of quiet enjoyment and satisfaction I derived from the space.'

the story . . .

The design was based on Shibui - subtle understated beauty, and Kanso - simplicity.

We used a restrained palette of materials to unify the space and create flow through the apartment.

Our custom designed plywood kitchen embodies Japanese simplicity and minimalism. Storage was maximised through intelligent space planning. Each appliance seamlessly integrated.

We sourced classic design pieces in greys and blacks to contrast with the warm plywood. The hand-built bookcases maximise storage in an awkward corner. Woven wool rugs add texture.

In the bedroom a partition creates a concealed walk-in wardrobe. Blown glass pendants hover beside the bed for delicate contrast.

The bathroom was completely reconfigured. By moving the doorway, an alcove was created for the wash basin. Subtle circular elements contrast with the grid of tiles. A mirrored wall creates a feeling of space.
