Interior designers' advice
The key to tasteful decoration
An elegantly decorated home is the essence of good interior design. Give free rein to your creativity by choosing lighting, wallpaper, ornaments and mirrors that add style to your rooms. Follow our tips to lift your interior with stylish, original pieces that make all the difference!
Lighting and decoration: every detail counts
To brighten a room and even make it look larger, you need to choose the right lighting and ornaments. Anything goes as far as style is concerned, and you can decorate rooms differently to enjoy diverse experiences as you move through your home. For the lighting, our interior designers recommend you use floor lamps and table lamps to create small pools of light for a more ambient feel. LED bulbs are best for a soft, warm effect. If you are fortunate enough to have high ceilings, use pendant lights to show off your room to its full advantage. And wall lights are a great way to showcase a wallpaper.
Our top choice: panoramic wallpaper
Hanging a decorative wallpaper with a pastel or exotic pattern will make an area stand out (your dining area, for example). A panoramic wallpaper also makes a room look elegant without cluttering it with furniture. Make sure it's visible as soon as you walk in the room by hanging it opposite the door. No need to add shelves or paintings; if it's striking enough, it will speak for itself.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who has the fairest home of all? You, with the Gautier touch!
Some mirrors are decorative and others more functional. We recommend you only hang wall mirrors that suit the room. Round mirrors are a good choice, as they add softness to your decor while also being practical and stylish. Hang them 15-20 cm above a piece of furniture, or place them directly on top of a chest of drawers, for example. Think carefully about the positioning of your mirror. If it's opposite a large window the light might be dazzling, so it's better to place it on a diagonal.
