Chez Jeanne et Bruno: a beautiful 1930s apartment

Chez Jeanne et Bruno: a beautiful 1930s apartment

It is on the 4th floor of this beautiful 1930s building that the bright apartment of Jeanne and Bruno is located. What triggered the purchase from the young couple is the super practical situation of the building (in the city center), its common areas "à la Gatsby" and especially the cocoon aspect of this 88 m2 apartment. With the help of their architect Fabien Baeza, the apartment has taken shape over the weeks. The work lasted 3 months with the decorative red thread being wood in the form of multi-ply pine panels. Once the fittings were finished, Jeanne and Bruno were finally able to unite their worlds: Jeanne's antique furniture harmonized perfectly with Bruno's more quirky tastes and "contemporary art". The two lovers like the mixture of styles, and that succeeds them rather well, doesn't it?

Kitchen open to the dining room


Cloporte Jeanne likes to work on this large table bathed in light (an old factory workbench found by one of her friends in a company that was closing its doors). It is also there that she receives her friends to concoct simple and original dishes of which she has the secret. At the back we can see the corridor which leads from the living area to the sleeping area-bathroom. The chairs found around the table were purchased on the Bon Coin.

The customized Ikea kitchen


Cloporte The kitchen was purchased from Ikea. We find on the doors of certain storage elements the multi-ply pine panels. On the floor the tiled floor tiles come from Richardson (avenue Jean-Jaurès in Lyon). The lights above the worktop-bar are from the NUD brand.

Mixing genres


Cloporte "Mixing modern stuff with the old auntie dishes, I love it," exclaims Jeanne. On Jeanne's table it is not uncommon to see white plates made of fine porcelain, ultra design cutlery with mismatched glasses purchased during a garage sale.

Focus on cooking


Cloporte As Jeanne likes to cook, this space had to match her and be in her image. It is easy to get around here and the worktop-bar space is synonymous with conviviality and sharing. At the back of the kitchen, the hostess hung a large poster found at Vinçon during a stay in Barcelona.

The poetic touch


Cloporte Jeanne set up her culinary event creation company, Delicatessen Factory. So she likes the little delicate details. And it does not fail to distill this sweetness in everyday objects and in its decor.

The dining room - office space


Cloporte Everything has been designed so as not to lose space and numerous niches can accommodate decorative objects and books. Behind Jeanne there is a piece of furniture designed by the latter which she then had made by a craftsman. The copper suspensions were found on La Redoute.

Children's works


Woodlice In every corner Jeanne has the works of César, Bruno's son. She admits to being very proud of these pretty massages.

The boys' room


Cloporte In the sleeping area there is the parents 'bedroom and at the end of the corridor the boys' bedroom: Aurèle (1 year old) and César (6 years old). The rooms overlook a courtyard and a wooded area which gives the place a lot of calm and light. The children quickly took possession of their space.

Decorative details


Cloporte You have to keep an eye out for Jeanne and Bruno because their world is teeming with pretty discoveries. On the living room shelves, a scene attracts our attention: a magnificent wireframe drawing imbued with a soft melancholy, this work was produced by Dainche, a young artist-watercolorist.

Caesar's bed


Cloporte Around César's bed, the decoration imagined by Jeanne includes storage in recycled Tade tire and sieve hung on the wall for a very soft decoration.

The bathroom


Cloporte Located opposite Aurèle and César's room, it is sober and graphic. The pine multi-ply is now again plated on the doors of the furniture below the basins.

The common areas


Cloporte The building has a very particular charm and as soon as one pushes the front door one finds oneself projected in the thirties. Of course the blow of heart for the tiling is immediate #ihavethisthingwithflloors And what to say about this elevator whose we expect to see Daisy or Jay come out every moment.

The facade


Cloporte The facade of the building is also characteristic of the 1930s. We find the codes of the time.
