We’ve followed the work of architect couple Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann of Paris-based Heju for the better part of five years now, ever since we first profiled their work on their very own tiny apartment near the city’s Place de la Republique. Fast forward through an eventful few years—through posts on their DIY Terrazzo Table, DIY Mirror (Made With Hardware Store Parts), Classic Turned Color-Blocked Paris Apartment for Two Graphic Designers, and more—and now the duo is behind the look of Papotte, a quad of holiday houses and a coffee shop in a revived 15th-century mill in Bligny-sur-Ouche, Burgundy.
“Our main goal was to create a different atmosphere for each house, so each has her own inspirations and palette,” Hélène says—all in gradients of blush, rust, rose. Have a look.
