sneak peek: caroline gomez

carolinepeek1

i’m completely loving the home of french designer caroline gomez (you may remember her best by her spoons)- clean and white, yet so colorful at the same time! the former factory provided the perfect shell for caroline to incorporate her love for 1950s scandinavian design sensibilities. make sure you click the jump to catch the entire sneak peek with additional images. i just hope my translations capture the essence caroline described en francais! [thanks, caroline!] -anne

[above: Our kitchen is wood and white lacquer and the pink print by SMEG gives a touch of fun. Over the course of the seasons lots of colors make their way into the mix.]

My office, lots of books, my colors, my computers, my old file cabinets that i rescued where i keep my designs – ceramics and other projects. I adore my Spline chair by Norway Says and LUPI chair by Habitat.

Our bed room, soft and light-filled, lots of books everywhere and a bit spread out.

The main room is a large room that acts as the living room, dining area and my office. I like working in the heart of the studio to maximize the space. we like uncluttered, clean space but with color. as one makes their way through the space colors are revealed: yellow, pea green, citrus, china blue…i love colors! As for paint and furniture, the general ambiance is inspired greatly by 1950s scandinavian design in staying modern and clean.

We bought this space (a former studio that repaired pinball machines) a year ago, we have made it our space, which doubles as our home and office. What we loved most was the natural light throughout the studio. I like that I can leave my bicycle in the entry when I come home.

I love the office! So colorful, and I love the idea of the round table in the center instead of a desk, which I may have to try.

Regina Alexandra

I really love the super careful use of colour. It’s conservative and precise use of wildness. Ingenious! What a balancing act!

jessica

Loora

Merci beaucoup pour ces indications ! J’ai une pièce à repeindre, et j’avais du mal à choisir mes peintures. Celles-ci sont magiques !

Merci de nous représenter aussi esthétiquement sur DS !!

Rebecca Nabors

I like the horizontal effect of the bedroom layout – kind of reminds my mind that this room is for rest. The clean, crisp colors are a bonus. Good job –Rebecca

Lan

I love your house! It makes me so happy to look at! I’m definitely feeling inspired to fix up my room this summer.

Frenchy_googler

Oui, merci… un peu de french touch ! Ca fait du bien…

tonya

i’m so inspired by your house. magazine quality tear sheets to use as an example. love it, love it, love it!!!

Frenchy_googler

Pas de powder blue chez F&B… es-tu certaine de la référence ?
Merci d’avance

Katrina

Hi Caroline,

Wonder if I could be cheeky – could I ask you to add the url for the pale lime paint you mentioned within the blog post please?

I do online marketing for The Little Greene – and it would be a great help.

Also – would you mind if we featured your kitchen on our blog? It’s a lovely example.

Thanks,

Katrina
