Decorating a vintage flat

Decorating a 1930s flat with a vintage feel in Saint Germain en Laye

The objectives

At the outset there was a run-down 110m² flat in a 1930s building that our clients, who were keen on vintage decoration, had just bought. The walls and floors were badly damaged, the bathroom more than a little dilapidated and the kitchen both too big and not very functional.

Our solutions

We completely restructured the space to create a kitchen/dining room that opens onto the living room, a professional sewing room for the wife and an enlarged master bedroom with an office space for the husband to work from home.

To add character to the flat, we replaced all the floors with solid Hungarian parquet and created sub-bases on the walls. The white paint highlights these structural elements.

In the kitchen, the Popham Design cement-tiled splashback sets the tone. In the living room, we designed and produced a large, custom-made bookcase painted in verdigris, which blends in perfectly with the vintage 50s furniture.

The renovated bathroom has a 1930s feel, with black and white cement tiles on the floor, chrome “grand hôtel” taps and retro Original BTC wall lights.

In the parents’ bedroom, a touch of poetry is provided by the floral wallpaper.

The stylistic note

Contemporary with vintage pieces from the 30s and 50s.
