What Friends Say: It’s so you. Biggest Embarrassment: The bathroom: no fan, no light, a little depressing. • HOUSE TOUR ARCHIVE: Check out past house tours here. Two words for the entry: grey carpet.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

My Style: Hoarder-chic, nostalgic, comfortable

Inspiration: Everything in my apartment is organized or designed around travel souvenirs, books, music, food and plants. Dream Sources: Showroom, Du Design du Retro et du Chic, the 4,000 blogs I follow and the lighting fixtures and furniture my parents make with their little company, Murmures Ateliers. Or flowers. Favorite Element: The kitchen; I love to cook in this very big and bright room. Intending to keep every book, every object, every precious little souvenir that she accumulated over the years, she rearranges them in such a way that they become an integral part of the space. Interior design is a way to hide all those flaws. Updated daily with fresh tours full of photos for you to pin enjoy! But I could go with the frames wall in my bedroom.

Raphaëlle found this apartment six years ago. • Are you a designer/architect/decorator interested in sharing a residential project with Apartment Therapy readers? Even though there’s only one cabinet door closing properly, and despite the weird pink melamine counter top and the absence of a stove fan (the place can smell like beef for days). And I really need to change my dining set. Open Slideshow
