Un chalet haut en couleur

Aujourd’hui, nous visitons un chalet situé en France dans la vallée de Chamonix. Ce chalet n’est pas comme les autres, la décoration intérieure est pleine de couleurs et d’éléments inattendus.

Dans ce chalet, la décoration atypique comporte des éléments neufs comme des éléments anciens, du cher et du pas cher, et le tout s’accorde à la perfection (selon les goûts de chacun biensûr).

Allez, on commence par ma “pièce” préférée : la terrasse. Le charmant mélange de matériaux authentiques crée une ambiance chaleureuse.

On entre dans la cuisine et le salon.

Personnellement, je préfère les couleurs neutres pour l’aménagement intérieur, mais je trouve intéressant de voir ce mélange d’éléments colorés, qui fonctionne!

J’aime beaucoup le style et la forme de la cheminée !

Voilà ! Imaginez vivre dans cet espace avec en plus, une vue sur le Mont-Blanc, que demander de plus ?

Inspiration Bloomingville

Bloomingville – ever changing homes

Bloomingville is a wholesale company from Denmark who supply home accessoires to retail- and e-shops.

Initially, Bloomingville’s product line consisted of items sourced from European producers as well as a small variety of pieces designed by the com­pany’s founder, Betina Stampe. Over time that focus shifted, and today the vast majority of the products are designed in-house, supplemented by special vintage items sourced directly from se­lected suppliers in Southeast Asia and Africa. The unique Bloomingville style is a mixture of raw products with a nostalgic Scandinavian twist and reproductions of fantastic pieces from times past inspired by French brocante.

Why do we like design ?

Last week, we discovered the work of Marie-Laure Helmkampf, interior designer living in the south of France.

Today, we take a closer look at this kitchen design to understand: Why do we like it ?

1. A balance of verticals and horizontals


 Horizontal lines :

  • calming,
  • pacifying,
  • enlarge the space,
  • create an indoor horizon.



Vertical lines : 

  • extend the height of a volume
  • create more dynamic
  • can be related to high trees, high vertical mountains, cliff
  • too much of them can create a feeling of suffocation[/one_half_last]

In this kitchen, the verticals and horizontals are used wisely. The verticals are on one side of the room or used for the highest elements, creating thus more volume up high. Horizontal lines are wide giving a calming feeling to the space.

Tips : Make sure you balance the lines in any rooms of your house to create the right feeling. Depending if you want the room to look calm or dynamic, use more or less of verticals and horizontals.

The shape of the lines are also important. 

  • Curve line : charming, warm, traditional
  • Straight line : Simple, modern, unpersonal

In this kitchen, they chose straight lines to keep the look modern and simple. The warmth and charm is added by other elements like materials and colors.

2. Colors

The colors chosen for this kitchen remain in the same tones of brown. The black and the green are added as touches to break the uniformity and give more dynamic to the room.

3. Materials

All the materials used in this kitchen are inspired from the nature : wood, and stone work together to bring a warm feeling. The look is authentic, surfaces look rough. A few vintage item like the blanck lamp and the high chairs, add the final touch to look cosy and warm.

Inspired by Nature !
Here are a few other landscapes from which the materials used in this kitchen are inspired.

I hope while reading this post you found yourself looking at your own kitchen or room wondering how are the lines or colors or materials organised !

Get inspired and create the new Light trend

The last few months, I noticed more and more simple light bulbs flooring around. It’s time now to get some inspiration and create the same look : I’ll tell you how, follow me !

At the first glance, I found that hanging bulb very simple, industrial, and not specially decorative. But the more I see it, the more I appreciate it. In fact, the long vertical lines create more height volume in a room, it gives an impression of floating element in the void.

I’ll show you here :

  1. How I got inspired by this new lighting trend
  2. Some more inspiration pictures
  3. Get the look: how to create your own new light
  1. How I got inspired by this new lighting trend ?

Here is where I first saw it, in a new café in Wanaka: URBAN GRING

This new café has been designed by the talented architecture agency Sorted, based in Wanaka. Have a look here to see more pictures of it.

Mistales to avoid when you hang your light bulb

  1. Make sure the light is placed in a room with enough height. You want the light cord to be quite long in order to enhance the volume of your room. Too short, the light will look like a cheap temporary building light, and you don’t want that.
  2. Make sure the cord is flexible enough to be hanging well vertically. The light bulb is usually not heavy enough to guarantee the cord to be hanging vertically. A too stiff cord will create a non vertical line which will look wobbly, and cheap.
  3. The tip is to place several lights in a row to enhance the industrial repetitive style !
