I just received these beautiful pictures from HOO, the interior design company who designed this gorgeous appartment.
I was very impatient to see the final result of this mural with all furnitures and accessories around and I love it, beautiful styling and pictures!
Thank you Anita, Sharon and Hoo team for this oppurtunity, it was a real pleasure working  with you again ^^

Gradient textured effect 1/2

I recently had the opportunity to work on two wall projects quite similar to each other in terms of technique.
Both are in shades of grey but with bases of different colours (one has a grey base and the other has a white base) and both have a gradient effect.
The gradient is quite trendy at the moment, the return of the 70s in fashion and decoration in recent seasons is certainly responsible for the trend.

Gradients increase the impression of space by “stretching” the colour.
The effect obtained is light. The gradient brings colour without saturating the room.
I find the effect very interesting although technically more difficult to do than an ordinary texture effect.
I invite you to reread the article “Half painted walls” which explains the kind of effect.
My clients are still in the “moving in” phase, I hope to show you photos with the furniture and decoration very soon.

La vie en rose

I recently worked for a family that has gone through one of those difficult challenges that life throws at you.
My job was to work on the main wall in the living room of the house in order to bring a new harmony and dynamic.
The space was too monochrome and masculine, so we chose to work with pink to rebalance the colour perception and the masculine / feminine balance of the room.
It is still surprising to me, despite years spent in this trade, to see how a simple wall in a specific colour can reenergise a space.
I wish this family a wonderful new start and I hope that my little intervention will have contributed to them feeling better in their new home.

Copper leaves and painted tree

Sometimes a move coincides with a new start in life or a new family reorganization. Separation, a new child; changes in family structures are often delicate and should be treated with the utmost attention.
Your interior design can help you feel better and it is with great interest that I saw this mural project being built.
The first aim of this project was to increase the emphasis on family values ​​such as love and unity. It seemed obvious to me to work the theme of the tree. Through the symbols of strength, roots, solidity or support, the tree is placed in the living room of this family. We have accompanied it with a poem which has been treated with simplicity and copper leaf for a bright and luminous effect.

The installation of the copper leaf was a first for me, but it definitely wasn’t the last! If you’re interested I’ll post a small memo to explain the different steps for installing the metallic leaves.

Apart from the poem, which is a black sticker, this whole wall is made by hand, acrylic paint and copper leaf.
