La Lumiere Fut

With the days growing shorter, it's time to talk about lights. This key element in any home improvement project strikes terror into many of us. For proof, look no further than those bare light bulbs still hanging from the ceiling several years after you've moved house… The famous Danish designer Poul Henningsen was already mocking us about this a century ago: "Furniture, style carpets, everything in a home is secondary to the importance of lighting. The correct illumination of a room does not require money, but insight." So, prepare for your very own "Fiat Lux" moment…

Wow Effect Un Détail Qui Change Tout

Another one of those Anglicisms we've adopted in French, embracing the upbeat spirit of our English-speaking friends. We say “waouh” (and not “Yahoo!”, in the manner of my grandmother enjoying the Internet for the first time). Our Larousse dictionary describes it as an expression of “surprise mixed with admiration”. How, then, can we achieve this holy grail of interior design? Here are some ideas to hopefully bring the “wow” effect (or “eureka”, if you prefer) into your home.

Devol Kitchens Une Cuisine à Vivre

Food: a quintessential source of comfort for which we’ve felt renewed fervour in recent months. Some of us have tried our hand at breadmaking.

Toa Heftiba « Un Jeu De Matières »

My late grandmother, Simone, liked to close any kind of aesthetic debate with the wise saying: “each to their own (bad taste)!” In other spheres and other times, Nietzche maintained that “bad taste has its rights no less than good taste” and Galliano ironically retorted: “I prefer bad taste to a total absence of taste!” I propose we debate this vast subject in the field of decoration and furnishings...

Ces Petits Objets Fetiches Du Quotidien

2020, has been a very special year so far! Working from home is no longer a privilege, it has become a necessity for many of us. While the teleworking experiment is already over for some, it persists for others. According to Barclays’ CEO, Jes Staley, "the concept of working with 7,000 people in the same building may well be a thing of the past". In the light of the current circumstances, creating a "home office" worthy of its name has clearly become a priority. Instructions on how to proceed >>>
