Architect Margaux Beja designed a rustic attic apartment in Paris' historic Le Marais district. For those who live in urban centers, it can be nice to have a reminder of the natural world. This home brings the outdoors inside through the use of a few raw materials.

'Apartment Saint Paul' is a rustic retreat located in the heart of Paris. The home is located in an attic, which gives it a compact yet cozy feeling. To add a touch of rustic charm, the architect relied on a neutral color palette and different raw materials. Unfinished wood beam and a walnut paneled technical wall give the home a warm and contemporary look. Minimalist furnishing also help to draw attention to the historical features that set the cozy home apart from other properties.

The rustic attic apartment demonstrates how architects can use natural materials to highlight historic spaces.
