Light invasion in a French apartment


Because many of you so frequently ask me to show interior designs according to my tastes, so that you can have some tips, today I’m going to show you this wonderful French apartment.


It is a modern home, located at the third floor of a building built in the nineteenth century, in Lyon, France.

Bright, contemporary and chic. In one word: terrific!

The first thing that stands out, is the amount of light that characterizes the space.
This great quantity of light, has been enhanced by the light shades chosen for the coatings, finishes, and furniture. The whole interior design revolves around three major colors: white, light gray and light brown. A bit of green, black, light blue and gold define the setting.

The products chosen for furniture are of great quality. They are mostly chosen from main design firms.

Here is the famous “Lounge Chair” distributed by Vitra:


The floor lamp “Luminator” distributed by Flos:


The “Akari E” lamp distributed by Vitra, hung up on the doorin the background:


The “Pipistrello” lamp by Gae Aulenti, on the left:


The Gervasoni and Carl Hansen couches:


Also, contemporary works of art and objects bought from the owners during their travels are part of the home decor.




I love the bright mood of these spaces. Also it is a really positive note for the home’s liveability.
The light, in fact, is one of the factors that most influences the mood and quality of life.
Always remember that a bright environment is perceived as harmonious and positive.

Personally, I love all choices that have been made about this interior. This home is really noteworthy.
It has personality, elegance and functionality.

Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stéphane Garotin, from Maison Hand Studio, both owners and designers, made an excellent work.
