In the living room, it all started with the blue sofa that set the tone of the painting (Peacock Blue, Resource / Sarah Lavoine). In a second step, the pro is the carpet that inspires the different cushions. On the wall, she chooses a wall lamp with a visible switch. Next to the library, a storage cabinet gray metal belonging to the husband of the interior designer inspires a small space of bucolic greenery. She draws golden polka dots and hangs a sun mirror on the wall that reminds the handles of the kitchen and thus bind the two spaces between them.

In the room of the smallest, a dresser of the 50s chinée a few years ago provides a storage room but also becomes a decorative element in itself. Associated with accessories of deco very gently for a childish universe, she is the master piece from the room. In the second boy's room, Claire Clerc has integrated the former child's desk of her husband. Leaning against a red wall that energizes the space, it is highlighted.
