The shades that will make you vibrate
“It is important to dare to go for shades that make you vibrate”, advises Anne-Laure Rusak. And this without thinking consciously and telling you “choosing this color may make our interior difficult to sell” or “I’m going to get tired of these shades”. The interior designer’s recommendation: be in the present moment, choose from a color chart the colors that arouse emotions in you, that correspond to you today. “If you are attracted to turquoise, you can choose accessories in this shade,” she says. You don’t have to paint entire walls in this shade!

To find the decor that suits you, you need to analyze what you want to experience in your home. “You must ask yourself what your priorities are: having space, living in nature, having a good time with your family?, explains the interior designer.
