Say “yes!” to this small apartment.
A TikTok user, whose real name is unknown — but who is a young woman who appears to be an American au pair in Paris — went viral on the app for showing off his modest French lodgings while abroad.
How modest? The size of its Parisian spread is equivalent to a tight 96.8 square feet, according to Insiderwhich forces him to store his suitcase in his shower.
“[It’s] small but I LOVE it,” she captioned the video, which she posted in April, which has since racked up 3.1 million views. The clip is a tour of the unit, whose Tiny size is even tiny by New York standards, however, its biggest perk is a distant, seasonal view of the Eiffel Tower through an oversized window.
But the unit is anything but oversized – and, naturally, TikTok users chimed in with their thoughts.
“Harry Potter had more space under the stairs,” wrote one, while another said, “This apartment should cost $20 a month.”
The downloader specified the cost, around 600 to 700 euros per month, around 611 to 713 dollars in today’s figures, paid by the host family who employs him.
Maybe it’s because it’s free to her that he likes it, but she takes great care of it, not only keeping it tidy, but also decorating it with postcards from the museums she has. visited.
Her tiny house opens to a small sink in the hall, where she keeps her toiletries. A small pivot to his left brings him to the main living room, which has a small kitchen next to a small bed. The kitchen is basically a small nook with a hot plate, mini fridge, plus a few drawers and cupboards for some storage.
Between the kitchen and the bed is a cramped closet, which she says “is a mess”, but the video shows her clothes organized on a rack and shelves. On the other side of the bed, thanks to proper organization, is a light fixture you wouldn’t imagine fitting inside.
“It’s my little office nook with my lovely view of the park,” she says of a glass desk that looks outside to a leafy view and, yes, the Eiffel Tower when the cold strips the trees of their greenery.
But a small turn to the right gives real meaning to the term water-closet.
“Behind door number 1 we have my toilet,” she says, opening a frosted glass door that fits perfectly into the toilet just behind. A pair of similar frosted glass doors next door hide the tiny shower stall, big enough to hold her purple suitcase.
“So cute!” she says.
And someone else in Paris, who seems to understand the tight crunch, agreed.
“girl I live in Paris and this space is seriously so well thought out and decorated!!!” another commenter wrote. “probably the best [96.8 square feet] I saw.”
