French designer Caroline Gomez created her personal space into an old workshop for jukeboxes and pinball, built in the 1930s. As Caroline decorating her new apartment, she thought of it as a white canvas where everything was possible. In the end, the large white surfaces combined with sweet pastel shades make the house bright and light.
The basic idea was the colours to define different zones in the apartment, but the proportions were not so important. It can be a corner, a wide strip or a small rectangle - but preferably not the walls. Thus, beside the sofa she painted a green field, the wall next to the dining area a pale lime-yellow, the bottom half of the wall behind the desk a deep turquoise, while in the bedroom she combined light grey with pink, creating a visual colour illusion of a headboard.
The house decoration couldn't be missing furniture and objects of the designer (like the console LA CONSOLE in the entrance, the table lamp LA TORCHE on the bedroom's side table, the self unit L'ETAGERE and the floor lamp LA BALADEUSE in the living room) combined with vintage mid century modern furniture, like the Hommie's favourite Eames Molded Plastic Rocker in lime green. Light wood furniture combined with pastels create a Scandinavian-style, natural and clean, like the designer like it.
