Dear readers, I hope you are having a great weekend. We had a lovely family day and actually managed both to tick off almost everything we had on our to-do list and to relax and enjoy the few sunshines we were granted. While returning from our errands I stopped at the press stand and grabbed a bunch of interiors magazine to catch up on. The May edition of the French AD features a flat that left me totally flabbergasted. You know that this blog is all about my love of colors in interior design. The apartment I am about to show you is pretty much all white, however the way it is conceived and treated is everything but boring. Ramy Fischler the person behind its transformation is a Belgian designer and a graduate of the Ecole Nationale de Création Industrielle, ENSCI-Les Ateliers. He has worked on eclectic projects such as tableware, every day objects for Alessi, or a collection of rugs for Tai Ping before working on residential and commercial spaces.
The flat is situated in a listed luxury Art Deco building designed in the 30’s by Jean Walter but the previous owner had left the 18th century wood paneling he had installed. Saying that Ramy Fischler modernized it is an understatement. He really pushed the boundaries. The living area of the two stories flat is located on the ground floor of the building and to bring in more light the paneling was painted in white fading down from the ceiling. To realize the ombré effect several techniques were tried and the work was finally done by hand. The result has an ethereal and dream like quality.In the kitchen and hallway, all the appliances are hidden behind white lacquered cabinets contrasting only with the walnut baseboards and counter tops. The floors are either covered in parquet de Versailles oak, or in white resin engraved with the same pattern. In the bathroom the floor transitions from the wood to the resin.
A real stunner worth sharing immediately even though no color is involved, don’t you think? Have a lovely Sunday and see you next week!
