It is a place to share as much as the dishes we prepare it.  

Your furniture: family, modern, pitcher, ultra design?

Stéphane Marie: A mixture of all that. I like that the furniture tell me stories, those of the family: the oval table on which the stay once my great uncle was cutting the pig; the block from my grandfather left the butcher became the living room console; old seat as a daybed, upholstered armchairs black mohair velvet which gives the impression that they are but shadows; or beautiful old chains I do retapisser with completely kitsch tapestries! 

The most unusual or unexpected that one can find at home?

Stéphane Marie: The chandeliers. This huge apple double palmetto was once in the garden. When he died, I had the idea of ​​transforming it. It is suspended by the roots above the mezzanine. Two magpies it look ass, under the astonished eyes of a squirrel! In the living room there is a large wooden ivy branch: it is like a spider on the ceiling. The dozen bulbs that illuminate, are reflected in a collection of pendants made of glass or crystal.

But the white dish comes off so well these internal walls painted red, as was the rule in order to repel flies!

Deco toilet, mistakes to avoid, our design tips

10 ideas to forget for the decoration of toilets

Porcelanosa

Like it or not, the toilet is a must for us and for our guests. If you do not want to spend too much time to decorate your bathroom, but you want it to create a relaxing ambience, here are the 10 mistakes to avoid!

We can not repeat it often enough: toilet should not be neglected. If you're not ready to revamp your bathroom, however it is important to dwell a moment on their appearance. The decor, some points are in effect outlaws. Side House unveils you here.  

1. Place a mirror opposite the toilet

Let's be honest, who really want to look on the toilet? Neither you nor your guests. The mirror should absolutely not be installed in front or back room.  

Council Deco: If you have a little space and a small sink, feel free to hang your mirror above (provided of course that it is not in the direct angle of your toilet).  

For small spaces: WC d'angle à poser, cuvette sans bride, Odeon Up Rimove.

For small spaces: WC corner to ask, bowl flangeless, Odeon Up Rimove.

Jacob Delafon

2. Choose a pan that slides

Difficult to find a more unbearable loose bowl. Restrooms are like be comfortably. We are not here to have fun!  

Council Deco: If you need to change your bowl, originality aside, it is best not to push too much. Color yes, but united.

3. Place a rug underfoot toilet

Sure, it's nice to have warm feet but it should still not grow. On, rugs and carpeting are more hygienic in the toilet. Two, it is a bit outdated (if not totally has-been). 

Council Deco: It is left bare soil. Easier to wash and prettier to look at. The heat we established with pretty muted colors and a decoration that looks like us. 

4. Hang pictures of friends and family in the toilet

Ultra common, this idea is however not the most stirring. It could even be offensive. On one side, we did not really want to see pictures of themselves when borrowing from friends toilets (much less to imagine all the people who watched you when they were installed on the toilet) . On the other, if it does not appear on such pictures, one is quickly offended. The simplest: banish WC.  

Council Deco: Frames and photo mosaics of all kinds are not so far avoided. They may even offer the warmth and personality to your room. Favor of graphic images, landscape pictures ... However, proving to be a much better idea. 

Dressing frame tileable extruded polystyrene, compound' 1 panneau 130 x 60 cm, 2 panneaux 130 x 45 cm, 1 panneau 60 x 45 cm. 59 euros la pièce. Cuvette NF Normus fournie avec abattant NF Monte-Carlo. Poids 1,3 kg. 49 euros.

5. A too strong or subdued lighting in small corners

The toilet is a small cocoon where it is necessary to go at any time of day or night. It is very unpleasant to feel assaulted by a too strong lighting. Conversely, too dim light can be given a somewhat gloomy side in this mini room. 

Council Deco:The classic sometimes good, why not just go for a soft white light ? If you are looking for originality anyway, know that colored bulb is risky. A colorful shade will give a slight tint to the light can be a great idea. 

6. The toilet closets

Because we do not all have the chance to benefit from cupboards for storing household items, it is common to see piling into the toilet, broom and mop. hygiene, it's not fantastic. Deco level, this is catastrophic. 

Council Deco: If you really do not have a choice, go for the decor material. retro fantasy mop broom could quickly become your best friends. 

7. Loose piles of newspapers

Leave hands handy, newspapers, books and magazines in the toilet, is a great idea! Attention however well organized. Placed carelessly on the ground, they are more likely to put off that we inspire. 

Council Deco:Shelf or rack magazine reconciles practicality and aesthetics. Note that it is always more fun to present recent reviews rather than an old newspaper read and reread by all guests for years. 

8. The tacky decor in the WC

Size often reduced, toilets must not to be overloaded. Nothing worse than to feel oppressed. More by trinkets collected without their decorative side is controlled.  

Council Deco: A light decoration is preferred. If you really love originality, careful not too spoiling.

9. A roller door broken, poorly rinsed brooms ...

essential elements in the toilet, it is important not to neglect them. If they are damaged or overwhelmed, do not waste time, change them.  

Council Deco: Whatever your taste, follow them. The toilet is a small room, let them pierce your personality. Simple, colorful ... The important thing here is the good condition of the utensil and quality.

10. Do not finalize anything in the toilet decor

The toilets are not not a store. full room, the toilet deserve pampered. Do not stop your halfway facilities. Nothing is more depressing than unfinished paintings or improperly installed shelves. 

Council Deco: Do not overestimate. It is important to know your limits DIY side. If your skills are limited, nothing serious. Go on easily workable ideas, they will be no less pretty.

Patina: 5 Mistakes to Avoid

Nicolas Suk

rejuvenating breath of antique wooden furniture and outdated furniture, patina is often seen as a quick fix. It is also necessary to master the right techniques and avoid the most common mistakes. Here are our keys to skate an old wooden cabinet with success ...

Common mistakes breaking too often this ideal of patina : Poor choice of paint or furniture, precipitation, color mismatched ... To avoid disappointment and too amateurish, Isabelle Ravet, decorator painter reveals the common mistakes she met during classes she exemption. Not to reproduce a piece of advice: read on! 

1st mistake: thinking that the choice of furniture matter

Wood furniture, antique furniture ... If they can all find a new life through the patina, However, the result is more convincing on certain types of furniture than others. Pick one at random is invariably the first mistake to avoid. 

It is so recommended to skate a Orchard Wood Furniture : Cherry, cherry or mahogany. Red present in the wood will indeed stand in the patina. The selected color will therefore turn to unwanted reddish hues.  

Skating light wood furniture, such as pine, for example, is also complicated. If we search a former effect, it will thus be necessary to darken the wood first and then remove the light color. Thereby limiting the steps and go directly to a dark cabinet. 

Plywood Furniture should be avoided for the patina. When pickled, the film timber stands and it becomes difficult to skate. The ideal choice is an old piece of furniture in oak, beech or pitch pine.

2nd mistake: chew to start

The patina requires a certain dexterity, or at least a helping hand. Getting into an overly complicated project to start, it is doomed to failure. So do not choose especially cabinet which you hold. Opt for an object that you had planned to throw. At best, you offer him a new life. At worst, you will not change your mind and throw! 

To note : Contrary to what one might think, choose furniture in the flat and smooth surface adds complexity. Conversely, a working cabinet, with moldings for example, will be easy to slip. The effect created it indeed naturally. On a flat area, it is the hand of the produce ...

3rd mistake: choosing too fast colors and not test

In the patina, the greatest difficulty lies in the choice of two colors to match. Select two colors too close is a common mistake he must at all costs avoid. This makes it almost invisible on the desired effect since it does not directly perceive the difference between the layers. Take two too remote keys are not advised. The contrast is too high, it loses its natural. Unless, of course, whether the intended spirit! 

Getting into the patina of the wood furniture without first tested above colors also appears often a disappointment. Depending on the color and the original condition of the furniture, the result with the same paint can be extremely volatile. Test product, under furniture for example, is more than recommended.

4th mistake rush ... or stroll!

Skating furniture requires time, especially when you're starting out. It is important to wait and let the patina dry 3-4 hours between coats. If you're too impatient, it is possible to accelerate drying with a hairdryer. Anyway, to be certain that you can attack the next layer without risk, Isabelle Véron recommends asking his hand over the painting. But beware, it is dry to the touch does not mean she is the heart inside. It is necessary that the paint is at room temperature. If this is the case, then it is good, you can continue.  

Start an element (table legs, chair arm ...) without completing the thought is to banish. Forget the phone ringing or cup of tea, we must stay focused. As it is a water-based paint, it dries very quickly. If you pause and then you go back, the connection will be and spoil the desired natural look.

5th mistake to think that everything is finished once the painted furniture

After all these efforts, it would be a shame not to protect your work. The maintenance of a weathered piece of furniture is essential to maintain the desired appearance. white antique wax or matte varnish for the most exposed furniture (kitchen, bathroom, nursery, ...), must come and cover the furniture the day after the last brush strokes. Repeat every 6 months is ideal, it may however be limited to once a year.

Error # 1: buy its paint products for tiles at random, without inquire.

Choose only products tailored to your tile painting. The tiles goshawks a bath or shower will indeed strained. The regular use of acid detergent or an abrasive sponge elsewhere may quickly deteriorate your pretty painting, even upscale. It will always rinse with clear water or a mild soap ... But avoid the low-end offerings (first prize with the words "all media" for example).  

Some paints for tiles need an underlay for joining the tiles, not. It all depends on their composition: read the labels. 

The primer (or undercoat) must be perfectly adapted to the support to really keep (it must contain a hardener). It is designed to provide a well compacted surface on which the paint will adhere to. Look for the indication 'Tiles' on the pot.

Mistake # 2: not having prepared the floor of his bathroom

For every painting, the bathroom is well ventilated, clean and dry. Remove any presence of moisture.  

Start by breaking the gloss of the tile (the varnish) with a hand sanding or an electric sander. This will then allow the paint (direct installation) or sub-layer to adhere well, otherwise they will "slip" on the floor.  

Then thoroughly clean the tiles with a cloth soaked in alcohol or acetone or with a slightly abrasive laundry (type St. Mark). Remember seals: scrape them, because any presence of impurities will degrade the quality of the finish.  

Be especially careful with tiles, especially if they have been lubricated linseed oil

Eliminate finally all the silicone seals, because the paint tile does not take over.

Mistake # 3: ignore the instructions of the paint bathroom tile

- Work at the right temperature, between 15 and 20 ° c. Cut the floor heating to your bathroom for the duration of the work, including at the time of drying.  

- Respect to the letter of application time. Some two-component products are mixed just before painting and must be applied in one hour .... If you exceed the exposure time indicated on the package, you may have very unpleasant surprises. With a large bathroom, try to divide the room into several areas, to paint one piece (the connections must not be visible). And every space, a can of paint!

- Apply the paint with tile method. On the ground always start with the side of the farthest bathroom door: you will have less trouble ... out! The first coat of paint must be completely stretched and smoothed to obtain a uniform end result. At the wall tiles: attention to the risk of runs, if we load the roll too. Paint if possible to the ceiling, even if the floor is not going to the top. The water will not drip and behind the tiles. 

- Let dry well. With an underlayer, wait at least 24 hours before removing the paint finish. Emphasize at the joints (they tend to absorb a lot).  

After the second coat of paint, if possible wait 72 hours before using your bathroom (you can walk on the floor after 48 pm but slippers ... and do not place furniture). 

Finally, do not forget to redo the grout the entire bathroom, or else watch leak!

Small reminder of the steps to follow: - If the painting surface is dirty (grease, grime, nicotine, fingerprints ...), it will wash it with a mild detergent diluted in water, always ending with a clear water rinse and a complete drying. Attention walls should always be washed from the bottom up to avoid dirty drips. - If cracks are visible on the surface to be painted, it will open with a triangular scraper and reseal carefully to the coating, and finish by sanding, once the dry coating. If the cracks are too important because " alive " (Due to variations in materials, they then receive the entire thickness of the plaster or wall), it is conceivable to put a glass cloth composed of very strong fibers and presented in rolls, prior to painting. The cracks will be much longer to reappear. Please note that the first layer of paint applied to a glass cloth must always be an acrylic painting that will not damage the coating. If you opt for this choice, avoid paper to paint reliefs and settle you a smooth surface, always reliable. Latest of painted paper, support for new arises like wallpaper and replaces the sandpaper. Smooth, it offers the possibility to apply a layer of paint on top, single or effect. - If the old paint is peeling, it will remove the loose paint with a stiff wire brush and then sand the surface with a medium-grit sandpaper, then fine grain.

Pitfall # 3: miss along the way paint (or buy too!)

What's more annoying than being in painting classes in action or being forced to return to the store the jar of 10 liters which remains on our hands? To avoid this kind of inconvenience, only one solution: carefully calculate the number of liters needed by the calculator paint Cotemaison.fr. 

Before you jump into the site, here are a few golden rules: - Even if your paint is indicated monolayer for a beautiful result that meets your expectations, count two coats of paint. - Lack of experience, we tend to overload the brush and thus consume more. Look a little wider and round above the prompts. - Better to have a pot too much to miss painting a Sunday afternoon, started the site ... 

And for those who want a calculation to measure, here's the method explained: - Measure the perimeter of the room by cutting openings (doors, windows). - Multiply by the ceiling height, divided by the yield indicated in the pot, then multiply by the number of layers to ask. Example: my part has a perimeter (5m + 7m) x 2 = 24m x 2.50m ceiling height = 60 m2. If the yield per liter indicated on the pot is 12m2 per liter, is divided by 12 = 60 5 liters x 2 layers = 10 liters. Is rounded to 11.5 liters for comfort.

Pitfall # 4: using unsuitable equipment to paint a wall

Rollers too fine, brushes that lose their hair ... A low-end hardware or unsuited to the quality of paint you will complicate the task. You will spend more time painting, the result will risk being irregular, it will be impossible to use them again, there will no doubt sagging and unsightly splashes.  

A good brush should be tapered and have long securely fastened to the handle hair, it is better to choose raw wood (instead of plastic or painted wood) for better grip. Better use of synthetic bristles when painted with an aqueous emulsion-based paint, said water-based paint. However, wool and silk are recommended when using solvent paint, alkyd said. Again, do not hesitate to ask the sellers specialty stores, they will direct you to the right products.  

Rolls-pile will be reserved for bright lacquers and paints, models with short or medium length hair will be perfect for satin and matte, anti-drops will be essential for ceilings. Finally, a large enough pan together with a grid will drain the excess paint before moving the roller. For baseboards and all flat surfaces, it is best to use flat brushes. However, use round brushes to paint the moldings and wall corners. As for the radiators, the corners are not easy to access, they will make it mandatory to use special brushes, elbow and long sleeve. 

On your list of accessories to be a good painter, be sure to note: good protective tape to provide in sufficient quantities, a good ladder to not break the figure and white spirit and other cleaning products as the painting.

Pitfall # 5: Get started without having tried his mural

Paint yourself: the 10 pitfalls to avoid

Dulux Valentine

The choice of the color of a painting always proves tricky. What shade adopt out where the place, how it fits together to the room and it creates the right mood? These questions require real reflection. Recently, virtual simulators and color charts are used to test the colors at home. The rendering is often artificial and far from offering the delicacy of colors and halftones. Hence the need to check at home the tone selected using samples before embarking on big jobs. The quality paints, as Farrow&Ball or Resource, and recently the DIY stores such as Leroy Merlin or brands such as Dulux Valentine, offer for sale of small pots called 100ml " testers " that can be a pretty fair idea of ​​the desired shade. Rather than applying the tester directly on the wall or part painting, better carry out tests on a white cardboard 50x50 cm, and then placing it in different places in the room and at different times of the day including night by electric light.  

These preliminary tests prove essential when one wishes to apply halftone or light tones, which undergo more than strong colors the influences of the environment and that can actually change appearance depending on the circumstances. Same when we want to combine two or three colors of paint, either in monochrome or in contrast. This precaution can actually save you time and money.

Trap # 6: neglecting the step of "undercoat"

If one does not care to an undercoat before application of the paint, such portion may harm adhere to the support, or being absorbed by the porous wall, which will " to drink " painting and require you to increase the number of coats required.  

There are sub-layer, which is also called " primary attachment " adapted to all media that can be painted: - On the walls: one can use cheap paint, but the ideal is to opt for a primary solvent in stain-power. Warning to respect the instructions of the manufacturers regarding the drying time. - The metal: use a sub-layer protecting against corrosion and facilitating the attachment of the paint. If the metal is rusty, you will find sub-layers to paint on such a surface. - The radiators: there are special sub-layers of heat resistant. Be sure to apply them on radiators off. - On PVC, tiling, melamine: you will find sub-layers reserved for smooth surfaces, allowing the painting to hang on these very special materials. Without this preliminary precaution, the paint is likely to ignore. 

Zoom: epoxy resin. Today Resinence revolutionized painting with its range of resin paint. This paint allows to repaint all media (credenza, soils, ...). We first apply a coat of paint (many colors) and a resin that hardens and becomes resistant. Very simple to use, it is also odorless.

Trap # 7: confuse oil paint and water-based paint

" The oil painting is much more complicated but it is more beautiful than the water-based paint "... The old adage lived! Lets see the differences between oil painting and watercolor.  

Oil or alkyd. The painting " Oil " is called in the language pro " glycero ". A solvent-based to facilitate the application, it is particularly appreciated for its painters " tense ", Resistance and durability. This is also the washable paints. It is however subject to new regulations because it is polluting. Its smell is strong and tenacious and solvent fumes can be harmful. In addition, it is likely to yellow with age, and its drying time is long enough between two layers.  

Watercolor and acrylic. Acrylic paint, said " water color ", Is odorless and virtually contains little organic solvents harmful to the environment. Above all, there are now excellent Language @ acrylics in terms of rendering and texture. Easy to apply, it spreads easily, dries quickly and holds in any medium. It is washable and tools can be cleaned with water. His only fault: it is weaker than its " rival " glycerophthalic.  

And that's not all ! Youngest paint radius, alkyd aqueous emulsion has the advantages of alkyd (resistance and tense appearance, high coverage) without its drawbacks (no smell, shorter drying, no yellowing). Tip: for not choosing an inadequate quality, ask yourself the following questions: are we going to paint the walls yourself? Are sensitive people may inhale paint? The work will be carried out while they are already living here? If the answer is yes to all three questions, we unhesitatingly opt for a painting in aqueous emulsion.

Trap 8: err finishing between matt, satin and gloss

Matt, satin, gloss ... Not easy to navigate among these three finishes! Yet it is better to choose the right, if not, beware of misses. 

Paint yourself: the 10 pitfalls to avoid

The Little Greene

- Matt paints: they hide minor imperfections in the support and appear very likely, because of their powdery texture and made deep and sober. Yes ... They are generally only washable and non-washable, therefore inappropriate for busy rooms, kids rooms or wet rooms like the kitchen and bathroom. - The gloss paints or lacquers: they have the power to enlarge the spaces reflecting light and are particularly easy to clean. But beware: they do not forgive any imperfections of the support and require three or four layers at least for a perfected. Reserved for perfectionists! - The satin. The most universal of paint remains satin finish, suitable for all spaces and all media.  

Question style remains to choose between smooth paint and paint effects. The latter, which was thought outdated, now experiencing a second wind. Manufacturers are working on styles in the zeitgeist (patinated, country, tadelakt ...) adorning the wall otherwise without much complicate the task. Carried away by soaring wallpaper, paint effect also creates a practical side. The paint function allows a piece of magnetic wall or blackboard for hanging magnets or write small words ...

Pitfall # 9: put too much paint, or not enough

Not easy to dose the right amount of paint when repainting a wall, furniture, doors ... However, if you put too much paint on a roll and we did not spin enough, we risk to sag or unsightly projections. And if, on the contrary, we do not care enough his sleeve, the paint layer will be insufficient, the roll passage traces will be visible and the paint will dry too quickly.  

The golden rules for right mix paint and work in the state of the art: - Mix the paint before use, thicker deposits still forming the pot bottom and risking making lumps. To do this, use a piece of wood, a wand or " mixer ", A tool that fits Mandarin electric drills. - Do not soak the roll than half in the paint and remove the excess with the grille.- Although apply duct tape before applying the paint to prevent overflow. For those who abhor this preparatory work, here's a little trick unverified house ... Cut in half an onion and rub against the surface to not paint. It appears that the onion has repellent properties to the paint! - Ensure that the paint does not accumulate at both ends of the roll. - If spilled: If the paint is still wet, simply crossing a sudden roll to spread the paint. If it is dry, it will sand and apply a new coat of paint.

Pitfall # 10: paint in bad weather conditions

Too hot, too cold, too wet ... Yes, strange as it sounds, the weather can affect the performance of paints. Be careful if you decide to paint your interior so in winter when heating your future apartment is not yet in use! In cold weather and high humidity, the paint will be difficult to enforce. It will be sticky and the drying time will be longer. With drafts a windy weather, the opportunity will be given to the dust settling on the wet paint.  

And if you take your brushes in the heat? Not good either, because above 30 degrees, the drying time is too fast, it can have a negative impact on the durability of the film.  

Last but not to be overlooked: ventilation, especially if you are using the oil-based paint. Indeed, the vapors from the solvent-based paints are not recommended nor for pregnant women or for children. Open wide the windows and do not hesitate, even if you are a consenting adult to wear a protective mask.
