Is Paris’ best bedroom in a closet? 6-in-1 yoga apartment



Laure Badufle works multiple jobs from home so, needing her tiny apartment to serve multiple functions, she built the smallest possible bedroom to maximize the rest.

The living area is a flexible space that acts as; living room, kitchen, dining room, yoga studio, piano classroom, as well as, design office and pop-up shop for her upcycled clothing. The multi-functional furniture located below the windows acts as a teaching platform, a sitting area, stairs leading to the terrace, storage, and office space.

Her bedroom, which most guests confuse for a closet, is just the size of her bed and such a small space makes it a perfect nook to retreat on a cold winter day. It’s a very minimal space with just art and bookshelves on the walls, but no other clutter which Laure finds helps quiet her mind when spending time there.

The tiny bedroom isn’t a sacrifice, but it was essential for finding space for a yoga studio/fashion atelier/living room in a 46-square-meter (495-square-foot) home. “We had to minimize to maximize,” explains architect Noa Peer (OUI architects).

  1. What an airy space, and I love the cozy den of a bedroom. Also, just wondering if someone else edited this video. It had a very…different feel from your usual videos. Cheers!

  2. This is one of the most creative, peaceful places I've ever seen. It doesn't feel small and I love the different levels. Thank you for showing us this, I'm inspired. I'm a new subscriber after watching this.

  3. I love how her windows are also her entryway. They look like doors from the outside but the change in elevation make them feel like windows from inside!

  4. I love this episode. The bedroom is perfectly cosy and the raised area in the living room is a stroke of genius. 😍

  5. Brilliant design and use. Modulable, multi-usage items.
    Especially in the context of dense metropolitan areas like Paris, with expensive square metre.
    Way to go.

  6. Merry Christmas…💐💐…..Wish you and your beloved family members on this wonderful occasion…🎄🎄

  7. There’s 0 chance the best bedroom is all of Paris, France, is in a closet. Not a single, minute chance. I only came to say this and leave after skipping this ad that’s playing before your clickbait video.

  8. I would love to be her. Yoga and piano tutor, designer and entrepreneur. And she made such a lovely space for herself. Just beautiful.

  9. This reminds me of the phrase “less is more”. I wish I could get rid of half my stuff. It’s hard. I always think I’m going to miss it or I attach some sentimental value to random stuff.
