Our small apartment in Paris

Our small apartment in Paris

Hello :) I'm a long time member but this is my first post and because my English is so weak (ha ha) I never give any advice ^^;I enjoy looking at everyone decoration! and I want to say that along many interior design communities/groups I know people here are so supportive and always gave friendly advices :) you guys are the best !
Now about our apartment,We(my husband,me & our cat)live in 3 floors apartment builted around 70's at the edge of Paris.It's quite small living space (which, I thought it was so big for us until some people pointed out to me that you can't call apartment that is lower than 700sqf. big, but a small living space) at 50 square m. (I don't know how many square foot it's actually is,please tell me?)with one bed room.
We just moved here for about 3 months but before that we used to live in a small studio with builted-in furniture and most electric stuffs belonged to the landlord so we didn't have so many things when we just moved in here.Just TV, bed, a washing machine,clothes and kitchen wears.
We have small budget (we r still young (well 27 yrs old is not really young but we just start the family haha + I'm a poor part-time worker)so we're buying furniture and decorative items little by little every month, mostly from IKEA,thrift places or D.I.Y and some were donated from family and relatives :)
Due to the limited of our space, we try to keep it simple and clean.
I would love any comments,ideas and criticisms from you good people here so that I can use for improve our apartment!
Any idea for storage stuffs in small living space would be nice.Thank you so much in advance *bows*
Anyway! here is my quick sketch floor plan (I didn't know it's hard to draw this thing until now @[email protected];)

To the living room

We cover the sofa with white fabric because our cat shades so bad in summer :/



Her favorite place to nap.


Those ever little things were mostly thrifted because I'm a die hard thrift-whore :P I love to collect junks so it's so hard to keep things not too clutter.


The living room is also my work space.I do craft and art as hobbies.
