She may be the name behind some of the French capital’s hippest addresses, and being so eclectic, Dorothée Meilichzon is a source of inspiration for many people renovating their homes. Her interior design ideas are rich, bold and creative.
Known for an ability to mix styles and patterns in fresh and fun ways that lend her rooms a warm and unpretentious atmosphere, Parisian designer Dorothée Meilichzon embraces bold color, textures, and prints in every room she designs. Meilichzon’s intentions for her interiors have more to do with ambiance than subscribing to styles or trends. In fact, she plays with lots of colors and different fabrics, instead of being loyal only to the French aesthetics.
Here you can find 5 elements Meilichzon includes in the interiors she designs and that will get you inspired. Take a look.
Use a unique furniture piece or design object
Dorothée puts the finishing touches on her historically charged decor with a few contemporary pieces. She is not seeking to create highly specialist decors, but places with a real personality, a clean atmosphere and a setting that invites people to exchange, share and make discoveries.
Don’t be afraid of a bold wallpaper
Bold wallpaper may seem like a risky indulgence. After all, you can always brush over a too-bright hue of paint, but tearing out a wallpaper mistake is a different story. “In my work, there’s always something black and white to give geometric rigor. Sometimes it’s tiles or lights; sometimes a fabric, or a wallpaper.”, says the designer.
Soothing, white bedding
White sheets and bedding might seem basic and boring, but that’s just not the case. For Dorothée, white linens are an easy design essential that should be part of every dream bedroom decor scheme. One of the reasons white linens are such a foolproof option is the way they make other neutrals appear more vibrant without getting loud. Calming neutral tones are popular for bedrooms, and adding a strong presence of white to the palette helps make neutral walls show their beautiful undertones, instead of feeling drab.
Use Geometric tiles in the bathroom
According to the designer, geometric tiles are a great design solution for those who wish to add depth and visual interest to a plain, neutral space. Also, pulling the same tile into the shower from the rest of the bathroom makes the bathroom feel larger.
Improve the space with sitting areas
Use occasional chairs. A great use of surplus wall space is for housing a few extra chairs. A console table between a pair of chairs with a large mirror or artwork above always looks smart, and you can pull the chairs in closer when hosting a large group.
