«In the kitchen, Cecile and Antoine dreamed of a large living room friendly and open on the dining room or whole family could meet and or Cecile could keep an eye on her children «, emphasizes Fabien. Faced with these specifications rather precise, the team then proposes to demolish the wall separating the kitchen of 13 m? and the dining room of 20 m, ceilings and linings peripherals and reinstall them a false ceiling. Some interesting solutions that allow today in light of ideally circulate throughout the space. And to differentiate the two areas, the team opted for a set of material on the ground. «The idea?

Chic and timeless, white and anthracite gray easily fit in this simple cuisine. This association confers the room a contemporary look and design that suits him wonderfully. «For maximum diffusion of light, our choice was quickly cover a dominant white. It captures natural light, giving the impression that the room is very bright. And to contrast volumes and give it a more masculine dimension, we decided to associate a dark gray. »

If the owners have chosen not to create further openings facade, an enormous work on the brightness was carried to the ceiling. «We have implanted light ducts Sun Tunnel. High-design, they bring a very high internal light reflection of 98%. Similarly, we flush spotlights in the kitchen area and creates a backlight on the inside of the cornice, thanks to the addition of an LED ribbon «, Fabien added.

Cote decorative, an anthracite gray credence and custom furniture used to mitigate the effect sanitizes the own purified and immaculate spaces. «The colors and the personality of the owners were the basis of all aesthetic choice, without neglecting the practical, functional and ergonomic «, says Fabien.

The curiosity of the dining room: the large mirror that maximizes the feeling of space and brightness of the room. «If this trick is the impact on our vision volumes by optical effect, our first desire was to answer the problematic of this table that the couple wanted to keep. Faced with this request came to me the idea of ​​this great breakfast table for twenty people via the addition of the mirror. A tip of hand which seduces the couple looking for a new space warm and friendly life. »

If in the children’s bathroom volumes were comfortable, and the rest was vetuste obsolete.
«In its juice, the room was decked hideous fish patterns, bright colors and an unstable and dangerous empirical column for young children. Both say that the challenge was to size!
» To respond to the granddaughter of the couple’s wishes, the agency then decided to return to the room naked and tweaking the principle of semi-sunken bath, already existing but poorly designed. In addition, a new plan basin 85 centimeters high, more suitable to a young child, is installed.

Breaking with the softness of the marble floor and new wall covering of the bath space, the plane sinks facades covered in pink fuchsia literally explodes and gives today a creative dimension to the room.

But also to rejuvenate the room was too old-fashioned and loaded in terms of decoration «, says Fabien.

If the bowl shows the color code of the kitchen, it has mostly been thought to adapt to the configuration of the room and everything was particularly implantation of the front door, located to the left of the basin.

    Very nice achievement. I like the use of fuchsia pink that gives pep to the bathroom children … But I also think it lacks a little something that gives character to a space.
