After transforming a house into four flats, the builder called on my services for the final touch: furnishing and decorating the flats before they were put up for rent.
The brief was clear: the flats had to be functional and pleasant to live in, but the budget for each was limited and everything had to be ready in one month.
When I visited the four flats that were still under construction, I wanted to create 4 totally different atmospheres. I couldn’t see myself making four similar flats, without soul. I thought about the social aspect of living in the same house and I didn’t want the inhabitants of different flats to go to each other’s apartments thinking that they were still at home if the decoration had been exactly the same.
This first floor flat (the largest of the four) is flooded with light from the large windows. White is the dominant colour used by the builder. I wanted to keep this clarity and luminosity by adding a soft and light colour to the white by choosing a pale pink.
This softness is also underlined by the rounded curves of the lights and decoration elements.
