In a viral 97-square-foot Paris condominium

Say “Oui!” to this small apartment.

The TikTok user, whose real name is unknown, is a young woman who appears to be an American au pair in Paris. in the app became popular for displaying modest French housing while abroad.

Just how modest? Its Paris spread measures 96.8 square feet, according to Insiderso she has to keep her suitcase in the shower.

“[It’s] small but I love it,” she captioned the video, which she posted in April and has since garnered 3.1 million views. The clip is a tour of the unit, which is small even by New York standards. But its biggest advantage is the distant and seasonal view of the Eiffel Tower through the large window.

But the device 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 wrote, “This apartment should cost $20 a month.”

The unit opens to a small sink that appears to double as a kitchen and bathroom sink.

The uploader put the cost at around 600-700 euros a month, about $611-713 in today’s numbers, paid by the family that employs her.

Maybe it’s because she gets a free explanation of why she likes it, but she takes remarkably good care of it, not just tidying it up, but decorating it with postcards from museums she’s visited.

Her tiny home opens up to a small sink in the foyer where she keeps her toiletries. A small shaft on the left takes her to the main living area, which has a small kitchen next to a tiny bed. The kitchen is basically a small nook with a stovetop, mini fridge, and a couple of drawers and cabinets.

There is a narrow closet between the kitchen and the bed, which she says is a “mess,” but the video shows her clothes arranged on a shelf and some shelves. On the other side of the bed, for good organization, there is a lamp that you would not imagine inside.

“This is my little table with a beautiful view of the park,” she says of the glass table that offers a view of the leaves and, yes, the Eiffel Tower as the cold air blankets the trees.

There is enough space for a desk.

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 as she opens the frosted glass door that fits the toilet very well. A similar pair of frosted glass doors close by hides a very small shower cubicle, just big enough to fit her purple suitcase.

“How cute!” she says.

And someone else in Paris agreed, who seemed to understand how depressing.

“Girl I live in Paris and this space is seriously so well thought out and decorated!!!” wrote another commenter. “, checks the best [96.8 square feet] I saw.”
