Montreal interior designers Gestion René Desjardins have completed the Maison du Boisé project. Completed in 2011, the luxury interior design property can be found in Canada.
According to the architects: “Once the clients had picked a wooded site, the brief was to create a contemporary Canadian house that would specifically address the children’s needs. From there, the mother was interested in colour and the father wanted a design that would last ‘indefinitely’. As for the style, they agreed it would be modern but ‘not minimalist’.
“Highly refined, they are the antithesis of popular notions of a family home, excessively ‘cosy’, overburdened with colours and objects. Then one begins to perceive the sensitivity of the approach taken. What does a child need to feel at home? Freedom of movement, achieved through ample spaces, fluid circulation for joyful fun of all kinds, and the removal of barriers between public areas and family spaces.
“Despite the minimally furnished rooms, a monochromatic bias and the Sucupira floors throughout the house, the decor comes across as anything but minimalist due to accents borrowed from classical architecture. 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.
“Throughout the contemporary property there are furtive splashes of colour that add an indispensable touch of dissonance, much like grace notes in an overly serious score. Paintings strike some major chords. ‘There is something naive about them that I thought the children could relate to,’ said Desjardins.”

Located in Florence, Italy, this house is very interesting for one main reason. It’s interior design is an odd combination of antique features that give the space a rustic and cozy feel and futuristic element with sci-fi flair. The house was designed by Simone Micheli who managed to bring these two styles together in an apparently impossible mix.
The result is a spectacular interior design....

To work and to be treated like home: this is the idea behind this new concept in hairdressing, and therefore underlying this interior design project. Apart from being a beauty studio, it also wants to remind its guests of a home lounge, with cosy armchairs, coffee tables, pendant lighting and domestic flooring carefully selected to reproduce, not the typical home decoration but the feeling of...
