At the heart of these activities, the coaching decor and garden were again proven to be real concentrates of ideas. Provided by Claire Coirier, interior designer, Marie Grindel, color specialist and Thomas Gentilini, landscape architect, these moments were great opportunities for visitors to rediscover and reinvent their own living spaces through expert advice, plans and custom designs and planks of inspiration.  

This edition 2016 was also under the sign of novelty: a new "Bazaar" universe in which visitors could discover objects from here and elsewhere, and a second night on Saturday evening until 21h to experience more of the magic of the place.
