The outstanding attachment towards nature, made a Canadian family decide to move their permanent home…into the woods. Gestion René Desjardins, the Canadian studio that completed the interior of this particular house, had to “investigate” what their clients wanted. Located in the rural Quebec, Maison du Boisé is a contemporary home in the middle of the woods. The clients requested a home that is modern, without being “minimalistic”. Moreover, they wanted a space that provides freedom of movement for their three children.
After gathering ideas and suggestions, the designers managed to create a fun place, offering “fluid circulation for joyful fun of all kinds”. The theatrical high ceilings remind us of the classical architecture where grand means gorgeous. The designers explain: “Reinterpreted from a modern perspective, the coffered ceilings, theatrical openings in the passages and wide matt-white mouldings running along the base of the silk-grey walls combine to create a sense of elegance and harmony, but, surprisingly they bring comfort, too.” Wide windows complete the décor, showcasing the beautiful green site, inviting you to relax, enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and explore the surroundings. Gorgeous spherical chandeliers adorn the living and the dining room and playful tones of purple add some fun to the ambiance.
From tree trunks in gold finish to eclectic pieces that defy geometry and define personal style, getting that unique coffee table in gold is well worth the time and dough. Getting one of these inimitable pieces should be as much about reflecting your personality and taste as it is about the style of the room and the glam infusion that it needs. Maybe there is an old trunk in the attic or an existing coffee table that can be transformed with a golden cloak, instead of splurging on an entirely new piece. With the adaptive reuse of materials catching on, there is no reason why you can’t come up with the design of your custom coffee table in gold.
Vivacious reds paired with brilliant turquoise, emerald greens coupled with dazzling gold and pops of bright yellow laced into a backdrop that is distinctly orange. Color is an integral part of most eclectic living rooms. Even though most homeowners prefer a more contemporary-eclectic style with grays and whites shaping the backdrop, a more boisterous approach does seem way more fun. Remember that eclectic is a style defined by ‘you’ and not any particular designer or trend. Pick colors that you truly love and paint a picture that is truly spellbinding. A good way to bring together these contrasting hues is by picking furniture with similar shape and outline. This approach works well in most modern-eclectic living spaces and if you want to throw in a curve ball, a tone-on-tone approach to decorating is another great alternative.
