The interior design of this semi-detached house has been revised from A to Z to refine, optimize and modernize the place where light and contemporaneity now reign. The tailor-made furniture forms a whole with the architecture and reinforces the purified character of the space.

The decompartmentalization of the interior now allows a much more fluid circulation as well as an increased bursting of light. The immaculate white, highlighted on the walls and furnishings, adds a lot of light as well and contrast perfectly with the key elements of the decoration such as the built-in fireplace, the stairs and the immense door of the vestibule.

Tone-on-tone coloring or layering, is a decorative technique that takes a single or a few colors and uses different saturation of that color(s) throughout the space. The result is a room that can be dramatically transformed just by lightening or darkening of that color.

The smaller warm touches, like the addition of walnut wood in the kitchen, give a convivial atmosphere. Just like the presence of the new central kitchen island and the huge dining table that sits at the center of the residence.
