One thing is now for sure, to stand out in terms of decoration, Parisiennes will now have to wager on the most beautiful carpet.
Forget the one with the Bohemian spirit brought back from far-flung travels in your suitcase. And mostly, banish the patchwork of ethnic carpets in the living room. This year, here are the three marching orders to adopt: colour, graphics and originality. 100% design. In a rather XXL format, even round or oval, it can be hung on the wall quite like the large tapestries going back to the Middle Ages. Always soft and cosy, mostly it takes over the place of a painting and recalls great artistic movements from Cubism to total abstraction including the geometric option.
Your carpet can be chosen like a trendy outfit that appealed to you in a flash. Ready to break your piggy bank? Careful when it comes to the faux pas design. Choose the one that corresponds the best to your tastes.
Like a child’s collage between a cottony cloud, big rain drops and a ray of sun. Souvenirs, souvenirs...
