You’ve probably seen French apartments in movies and on TV, but have you seen French apartments in Paris that are lived in by Parisians? This studio apartment belonged to my friend, who lived in the 13th arrondissement in Paris.


Small French Apartments Are Beautiful!

Apartments in Paris are normally pretty small. Of course there are people that have huge places, but on average, most Parisians live in small spaces.

Are you wondering where the bedroom is? This is it. It’s one room and the bed is the pullout couch. This is a studio apartment so if you were renting a vacation apartment in Paris, a studio wouldn’t have a separate bedroom.


There are four areas of storage in this apartment and a small area just above the hallway. My Parisians friends are so wonderful at not having much clutter! Since they don’t have much space, they are normally pretty good at getting rid of excess junk and only having their place filled with the essentials.


See those two arches in the picture below? The one on the left is the bathroom and the one of the right is the kitchen. The white cabinet to the left is one of the four storage areas in the apartment. There is her laptop on the wood table which doubles as her office.

While the apartment was small, she had everything she needed. It was tiny, but she didn’t lack anything.

Have you ever lived in a space this size? Do you think you could?
