The place : in the center of Lyon.
The surface : Carrez 34 m2, 42 m2.
Work: 3 months of structural work till furnishings.
Before work, the decoration of the apartment was poor
Long inhabited by an elderly person, the apartment is bathed in a decoration from the 50 Question arrangement, the potential is there but a few points blacken the table: an imposing staircase to access the mezzanine cut the space into two, fireplace unattractive clutter the living room already open, and the bathroom underneath the loft does not really dreaming. Bénédicte Soltner and Anne-Sophie Coulloumme-Labarthe, the decorators in charge of the project, take things in hand: a new staircase finds its place against the wall to free space, the fire disappears and custom cupboards fit in mezzanine, thus optimizing the surface. As for the decor, floral prints and exit kitsch materials, up to color and contemporary furniture!

The living room, a cozy space and warm
Once the broken fireplace, the room was able to find a new breath. The advance of the wall has been painted in a deep blue duck to bring out the structure, not as something to hide but rather to exploit! It is also for this reason that a large round mirror was hanging there, so remind the niche of the entrance and create a thread in the apartment. That clinched the wall appears all the more that the other party was treated in a verdigris and visually defining the office space of the living space. In the latter, comfortable sofa and armchair with complementary shades, took place around two coffee tables in black metal and a soft carpet.

The railing in black metal, wire, took this game graphic distilled here and there in the rest of the apartment. Taking the height, the room is all the more intimate. The headboard, treated gray green paint, said the wall of the stay, and sufficient in itself to make the soothing ambience. The flooring Bolon, verdigris mixing and beige, is a continuation of the decoration. And still the game graphics on suspensions and bedside tables.
