I was born on November 1st. In France, it is such a sad day. Nothing in common with the way Americans celebrate Halloween or the Mexicans celebrate el Dia de los Muertos. I decided it was time for me to get my revenge and create my Halloween design board. Today, on my birthday, I will create a special living inspired by Halloween. Observing the color-palette of Halloween, I do have to admit that I love these orange tones that are so warm. You can just add some very chic dark gray or black accents.
YOU HAVE A CRUSH ON AN ORANGE SOFA?
Orange is such a vibrant color, don’t miss the chance to enlighten your space.
Just go for it! It will perfectly fit with grey walls or floors for more an elegant contrast.
Recently I was so excited about the reissue of this Paulin Sofa. I have to say that I am a big fan of Pierre Paulin. I am so delighted because Ligne Roset ended up with this fabulous reedition. This sofa also known as Bonnie was rediscover while studying Roset’s archives. Paulin family and Ligne Roset agreed on this reedition in 2018.
The orange fabric is a perfect mix between bold orange and dark red. The shape is so soft and welcoming. It reminds me to some nice and kind phantoms like Casper.
GET A GAKU FLOOR LAMP
But my real phantom in this decor is the Gaku Floor Lamp by textile designer Dagmar Mombach in collaboration with Ingo Maurer. It would be a perfect fit in this Halloween design board.
The beauty and flexibility of this processed paper offers us a sculptural floor lamp. The fluid and dynamic shade inspire an impression of movement. As if this lamp would be a little ghost.
Add a piece of art
I could not resist to include in this project these amazing Silhouettes by Cindy Travis Clement I discovered a few weeks ago at Glassell School of art. The piece is quite huge, and I wish I could find it at a scale for a smaller space.
Add some black accent
To achieve this Halloween design board, I decided to mix these three masterpieces with:
– A set of three side T-table designed by Patricia Urquiola for Kartell
– Some black velvet pumpkins
– The wall lamp Gaku created by Nendo for Floos
– The wonderful woodfloor, ‘Lines’ from Jamie Beckwith
