Interior Decoration: working light

Light plays an undeniable role when it comes to decorating both indoors and outdoors . 

It is necessary to choose the right light according to the part to be illuminated but that is not always obvious. To make the right choice in terms of brightness, there are some points to remember.

 

A light according to a room: some principles

Already, it is necessary to avoid positioning suspensions because these tend to make the room much smaller and the lighting is then done in a uniform way. However, it is better to opt for lights that bathe the walls and enlarge the space. By turning to dimmers, it is possible to play on the mood and the time of the day. On the other hand, for the decoration to be put forward, it is important to play on the artificial lighting. On this point, it is necessary to choose materials which optimize the comfort and the visual at the same time.

In addition, there are the lighting but the choice is made according to the room to highlight. For the living room, it is possible to combine different moods but the creation of shadow areas will not fail to capture the attention. For a living room, the centralized suspension is the best and to make even more Zen, table lamps arranged near the sofa are a great idea. When the evening arrives, a cozy atmosphere will be at the rendezvous. For the dining room, the light should be placed above the table and will optimize the brightness of the room. Do not neglect the kitchen but here too, suspended lighting illuminating the entire room is what will do. The spots are used to avoid shadows.

Of course, there is the bedroom which is a must in the house. To attract sleep, a lamp on the floor is recommended (see these design lamps that we love). Ceiling lights are not preferred but with a little technique, it is still possible to place them in the room. Otherwise, it is possible to opt for a reading lamp or a desk lamp to sift the atmosphere.

 

LEDs and Interior decoration

Always compared to the indoor light, there are the LEDs that make a perfect decoration. Moreover, the tastes can be diversified because the owner of the house can choose between the apparent bulbs, the suspensions or the lampposts. Everything depends on the tastes of everyone. In any case to save energy, led lighting is important .

For a nicely decorated living room, you have to turn to halogen lamps that consume little energy and bring heat. For the bathroom, a bright bulb above the mirror is to put forward. As for the kitchen, it deserves small bright lamps in the place where the user will cook. To do some reading in the bedroom and admire the beauty of the dim light, a nice LED on the bedside table is an idea to try.

Natural decoration with raw wood!

Judging by the latest design shows, natural materials like wood have more than ever the wind in their sails. 

 

The latest trend is to leave it as raw and natural as possible. Products made from bark and twigs are a good example, as is the so-called “cat-footed” oak, famous for the large number of knots that once made it a less noble wood.
There are many ways to enjoy the colors and textures of raw wood at home. Whether you prefer to integrate small touches or siding on a wall, these ideas should deco inspiration. Contemporary Room by Capital Building

Warm a room with wood paneling

Wall paneling is a great way to give a space a warm and interesting look, without spoiling the purity of the immaculate white of its decoration. This wall offers a beautiful headboard that brings a beautiful color and interesting texture to a room otherwise stripped.

Turn a pile of logs into a decorative element

If you have a fireplace and do not know what to do with your firewood, why not add it to your decor? A storage corner like this one will turn into a most successful decorative composition once filled with logs.

Contemporary Home Office by Union Studio

Imagine a work of art 

Using wood as an artistic piece is a great way to include it in the decoration. Here, the risk was to obtain a “siding” effect, but by cutting the boards so that they were shorter than the wall, a work was made that oscillates between the painting and the sculpture.

Contemporary Living Room by Searl Lamaster Howe Architects

Warm up a space with weathered wood

Once aged, the wood immediately brings a warm dimension that integrates perfectly in a refined decoration. Here, the paneling accentuates the height of the room and gives the illusion of a duct around this modern fireplace.

 

Leave your beams visible

Here’s a simple way to incorporate this trend into your home. Instead of painting your beams or hiding them, leave them rough or wax them to give them a richer color.

  

Install it on the floor 

A staircase is the place to create contrast games because it connects two levels. This wood panel is framed with a white border that gives the illusion of a painting while a suspension highlights its nuances.  …

or in the hallway

A corridor is also an ideal place to integrate wood at home: this long corridor sees its curved lines accentuated by a paneling whose thin parallel planks emphasize the direction of the passage, drawing the eye on the perspective. 

Marry different wood species

Do not be afraid to mix different types of wood and different finishes in the same space. This bathroom combines, for example, a very smooth varnished wood, wainscoting planks and beautiful rough gnarled wood pieces that offer a nice variation of tones and textures.

Do not forget the garden

If wood is obviously used for terraces, fences and garden sheds, also think of creating a sculpture to give a daring to your decor. This incredible sphere only needs to be touched and admired. 

Glass, an essential deco ally in your Interior Decor

A trendy and aesthetic material, glass has become indispensable in decoration thanks to its decorative and practical appearance.

Conciliating transparency and trend, this material gets the taste of the day and accompanies the new modes in terms of decoration.

 

Glass in all its states

Interior of all glass houses

 Glass in all its states 

 

The different types of glass used by our interior designer

Tempered glass

Tempered glass or safety glass is appreciated for its great resistance. It can be used in decoration. In order to guarantee a better quality, modern techniques are used for cutting, shaping and tempering glass. The gloss polished flat gasket is favored to ensure a more aesthetic rendering.

Double glazed glass

For openings: doors, windows, bay windows, etc. double glazing is highly recommended. The manufacture of this type of glass is done in several stages. Two windows are superimposed on each other, leaving a thickness in the middle that traps the air. Better thermal insulation is one of the advantages of this type of glass. Indeed, the heat losses are lower favoring a reduction of the consumption of electricity. Double glazing also provides better sound insulation.

Laminated glass

Laminated or laminated glass is a type of safety glass generally used for car windshields. Thanks to the plastic film inserted between the layers of glass, this material becomes more resistant to shocks and does not risk injury in case of breakage of glass. This type of glass is also used as a guardrail or guardrail.

Material Trends to Remember!

A trend dictated by our need for nature and authenticity and the popularity of Scandinavian and industrial styles

Here are the material trends to remember:

  1. Natural wood

    Of all the materials, light and raw wood remains the favorite. Light oak, multi-birch, poplar or okoumé panels are popular essences. Furniture and structures decorate and dress the whole house, in a Scandinavian spirit with clean and functional forms. Matte raw wood is suitable for combination with glossy, white or colored lacquer. Impossible to escape the small coffee table mixing compass legs raw wood and lacquered tray for example.  

  2. The toupee

    Coming from the Far North, a sure bet for the Scandinavian style, sheepskin is a must have of winter. Countless were the stands that paid tribute to this warm accessory, declined to all the sauces – chair, stool, bench, descent of bed, etc. – and in all colors. It is nevertheless natural that it wins all votes. Mixed with a Hay or Eames armchair, it’s the comforter decorative accessory par excellence that makes us all crack. 

  3.  Concrete

    Thick or waxed concrete, decorative objects, floors, showers or kitchen worktops, concrete remains one of the sure values ​​of our interiors. Its anthracite color, always at the forefront of the trend elsewhere, continues to emulate. Its smooth and matte texture, its resistance or its rough and irregular appearance make it one of the stars of the industrial style. 

  4. birch branch

    Many booths have bet on a real branch of birch to create a clothes rail, a suspension over a dining table, a lamp base, a semi-partition between two spaces or a wall decoration. The raw bark-free wood and the black-and-white surface make it an element that fits perfectly into a Scandinavian-inspired interior. Trunks cut as side tables or petrified wood have also been identified as popular variants. 

  5. The openwork metal

    Lamps, bookcases, shelves, coffee tables, mirrors or seats are lightened by their “wire” structure in lacquered black metal or copper. Very geometric shapes, these objects let the light and bring a contemporary industrial touch that is not without filiation with the work of Eiffel. The Parisian lofts will appreciate.

  6.  Ceramics

    This ancestral material – worked since the Neolithic – and made from baked clay has come a long way, but remains one of the favorite creators who work to modernize the forms. If it remains on the table (plates, cups …), it also conquers the other living spaces. Luminaires, vases, planters and decorative objects are available in solid, colored or patterned ceramics in very contemporary, clean forms. 

  7. The raku

    This particular type of ceramic, inherited from a Japanese know-how dating back to the sixteenth century, was particularly represented this autumn on Maison & Objets. Raku uses a refractory earth that withstands intense thermal shocks. The ceramics are taken out of the incandescent furnace and immersed in straw or sawdust entering combustion. The resulting smoke seeps into the enamel, which tends to crack under heat, hence the blackened veining, unique for each room.

  8. Wicker and vegetable fibers

    Our desire for nature is strongly felt in the vogue of “garden” interiors. This Maison & Objet session proved particularly rich in new plant containers. In the same vein, wicker or braided plant fibers were on the front of the stage. Emmanuelle armchairs, baskets or Moroccan baskets in braided palm, doum are essential of the eclectic style this year.  

  9. The blown glass

    Impossible to escape the objects of decoration in blown glass. To be in the trend, opt for cabinet style bells, suspensions similar to big soap bubbles, table lamps that evoke funny balloons or get a demijohn to transform it into a vase. The glass objects are white or colored but still XXL this year. A lot of lightness and fantasy at the key.  

  10. The marble

    The marble does not leave the top of the stage. Containing delicate small objects or trays of coffee tables, the marble is distilled by small touches in the house. Carrara with immaculate white, Calacatta with its gray veins and black marble are the most popular. The shapes are very simple to first put forward this material that alone is enough to evoke luxury and timelessness.  

  11. The wool

    Like wood, wool, natural material, ecological, warm and warm, is welcome in our interiors. Plaids plain or plaid “tartan”, the tops of sofas or some accessories (ottomans, lampshade lamps to ask …) have bloomed on the stands of this edition. Note that the felt was also present, especially through decorative panels both thermal and acoustic or screens to break the reverberation of sound in open rooms.  

  12. Burnt wood

    Shou-sugi-ban’s ancestral Japanese technique consists of charring the surface of the cedar wood and then scraping it to obtain different shades of black or textures. It is originally an architectural technique: houses with wooden panels treated with this type of re-resistance are more resistant to the weather and the attacks of xylophagous insects. The beauty of this material now attracts French architects and decorators and furniture or decorative objects in charred pine then oiled emerging. A new material to follow closely! To conclude, we will retain this edition a great return to the craft or objects that are inspired by it. Tree trunks, burnt wood, braided fibers, ceramics or blown glass lend themselves subtly to the “handmade” style and bring extra soul into our interiors in search of authenticity.

Renovation | Demolition of a wall indoors

Do you want to open a room? Find out who to hire, how much will it cost and how long to plan.

If you have decided to live in a more open space this year, you have probably planned to cut down an interior wall. It is a project that often seems simple: we equip ourselves with a mass and hop, we get a large room brand new; but it’s actually much more complicated than that. Depending on the composition of the wall, and whether it is bearing or not, slaughtering can be a very simple undertaking, as is a major structural change. Here is what you need to know. Mediterranean Kitchen by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Why ?

The purpose of such an operation is usually to connect the rooms together and create more open living spaces. Breaking down a partition also brings more light into a space and creates greater fluidity. Finally, you can also decide to cut down an outside wall and extend the room to the outside to increase the space. Classic Kitchen by Echelon Custom Homes

It can also allow you to create a hatch, or install a bar between two rooms in order to receive more people. Eclectic Kitchen by Angela Dechard Design

In this Los Angeles kitchen, a partition was cut down to open onto the adjacent dining room. A counter allows to receive more people and benefit from an additional work plan.

 

Who to hire?

It depends on your wall, whether it’s carrying or not, and what’s inside: plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and so on. An experienced contractor can make a diagnosis. An architect, however, remains the best option, according to a building contractor. “He may have a different view of things, which may save you from taking down the entire partition, which will allow you to spend less. Demolishing an entire wall can totally change the atmosphere of a space, “he adds. “Keeping some pieces of wall can be in your interest. “

Classic Chic Kitchen by Kayron Brewer, CKD, CBD / Studio K B

Good to know: taking down a partition in a single-storey house is very different than doing the same thing in a two-level house; in the latter case, it usually costs a lot more. “For a two-level home or more, it’s important to have a professional,” says Andreson. “Predicting the weight distribution of the second level on the other walls is a real engineering job. ”

Moreover, it is sometimes difficult to determine whether the wall is a carrier or not; it is better to hire a professional. “In some houses, I have been told that I did not think the wall was a carrier, then go to the cellar and realize that in fact it was. Sometimes the wall does not seem to be, so it’s best to check before you start demolishing it, ” recalls Jeffrey Veffer. Mountain Cuisine Traditional Kitchen

What technical elements to anticipate?

When you’re cutting down a wall, one of the most complex moments is dealing with what may be on the inside and if the demolition involves diverting gas, electricity, or the HVAC system, it changes everything. For example, moving supply connections and vents may change the operation of the heating system. “If you remove the supply ducts, the house will be less comfortable,” says Jeffrey Veffer. “This type of work always has repercussions. “He says you never know exactly what you will find inside the walls. By knocking down a partition in a house dating back to the 1920s, he found an unused gas line that went up to the second floor and had to hire a professional to disassemble it. The owner of the house did not anticipate this kind of expense.

 

Cost: It all depends on the type of wall and the systems that will have to be hijacked or moved. The cost of labor also varies by region. Here are some estimates:

  • To knock down a non-load bearing wall, on one or two levels, when installing carpet: between 1,900 and 2,300 euros
  • To knock down a wall on one level: around € 7,500
  • To knock down a wall on two levels: between 15 000 and 22 500 euros

Whatever your budget, we advise you to provide 20% more for unforeseen and possible surprises that can generate this type of work.

 

How long will the work last?

About two weeks, not counting the necessary renovation work on the floors and ceiling finishes.

 

Is there a permit?

Breaking down a partition at home does not require a particular administrative approach, except in the case where it is a question of making a living space. In this case, a building permit will be required. On the other hand, to demolish a wall, you will have to take some steps, sometimes long, and obtain an authorization. how to remove a wall

And after ?

When you cut down a partition, you have to take into account the consequences that this demolition will have on the floor and the ceiling. For example, it will be difficult to connect solid wood floors and to make the floors become one. “It’s hard to reconstruct where the demolished wall was and make sure it’s in the background , ” says Andreson, illustrating his story with a photo of a project he’s been working on. had to cut down a partition. “Ideally, you have to remake the soil so that everything fits in well, ” he says.Jeffrey Veffer explains that he saw projects in which the contractors had managed to find pieces of wood and match the original floor, sanding the floor and applying a new stain. This has yielded good results, but imperfect. With carpet, the same operation will generally be much easier. It is also necessary to take into account the state of the ceilings after the demolition. “Projected or smooth plaster is pretty easy to connect,” explains Jeff Andreson, “but when there are moldings, it’s more complicated. If they are old and you want to keep them, they will be difficult to connect with the new space. ” Eclectic Dining Room by Sarah Greenman

What is the best time to do this type of project ?

If you plan to redo the floors of your home, this is the perfect time to knock down a partition. This kind of project tends to be a lot of dust and noise. Also, it is more than advisable to consider the possibility of spending time with friends, in your family or in a hotel the time of the works.

What are the ways to partition a bed in a studio?

The modular is not everything in a studio and solutions exist to circumvent its constraints.

Delimit two separate spaces, between day and night, avoid having to unfold your couch or open your bed before going to bed, and down the ladder of the mezzanine to jump from the bed at the risk of a fall. Cleverly arranged, the partition between the two areas allows to gain intimacy around the bed and optimizes the volume of the room. Fixed, removable, transparent or opaque, it comes in all its forms to meet the desires and needs of everyone.

Interior Designer vs. DPLG: Two trades, two approaches

Interior architects and architects DPLG (graduated by the government), are two distinct professions.

On the one hand for their missions that have yielded to them and on the other hand, for their diplomas . However, these professions bring a common theme which is the design of space . We can ask ourselves what their jobs are, what are their areas of expertise and in what context do they intervene?

 

The different missions of these two architects

Different missions are assigned to them, with different expectations. They do not have the same skills and interact on many areas of interior design and architecture .

The missions of a DPLG architect and his works

The architect DPLG is an architectural designer . He graduated from state, It intervenes mainly in the constructions of individual houses, buildings or public buildings. It can also do heavy house renovations when the structure needs to be modified.

Its role, besides making the plan, the urban planning, the building permit and the council, it is also to manage the mastery of work and the workers who will work on the site.

The architect DPLG is very regulated , it is obliged to take out a decennial insurance . He has the ability to draw construction plans while respecting the rules of urban planning.

Many DPLG architects act on Aix en Provence and its region . In particular ASENCIO LAUGIER ARDISSON, and Didier Gautier Architect. These DPLG architects also exercise their skills in landscaping. Partnerships between these two professions are born to create a harmonious and artistic scenography .

H3 The missions of an interior designer

Unlike a DPLG architect, the interior designer can only modify and think about interior design . He can not in any case intervene on the structures of a building. He rethinks the decoration of the interior space with an artistic eye, playing with the harmony of colors , the choice of materials, furniture. It can be interiors of individual houses, apartments, offices, shops. He always takes into account the existing architecture, he arranges the layout of shops and businesses.

Like the architect DPLG, he is the prime contractor and can therefore monitor the progress of the construction site, follow up on the work.

These two very different professions act for a common interest, the harmonization of a living space. Whether for a house, an apartment, a business. These architects want to create a special atmosphere for a place and seek to personalize each space.

 

The complementarity of these two professions in the world of architecture

The architect DPLG will work in large works , and renovations heavy, while the interior designer will focus on detail with a harmony of colors . These architects work for the same purpose , which is to create authentic and personal spaces to the sponsor.

A common mission

They are artists from a certain point of view. They create, transform, renovate, develop from scratch. They leave their imagination free to design places with an interior decoration that pleases each customer.

Their common interest is to satisfy every request in an architectural project and to create authentic and personalized spaces. They do not have the same missions or the same skills, but their wills of creation and decoration are the same.

A desire to beautify

The details that everyone will bring will be complementary and harmonize to create a unique place! The architect DPLG will create a play of light thanks to the openings of the place that the interior designer will highlight thanks to the placement of the furniture and the living space. Their interests are to gather their strengths to complete their weaknesses, in order to deliver a project that is in agreement with the client .

Although these trades are different in terms of mission and skills , they can come together to create an authentic scenography , with a harmonious interior decoration .
