Inspired by the beautifully sculptural effect of curved architectural walls, the work of French interior designer Francois Champsaur, has a beautiful smooth timber finish.
Trocadero Apartment by Francois Champsaur
Bold in black and incredibly textural, this piece was designed by CM Studio.
It features a distinctive curved batten pod that cleverly conceals the apartment’s bathroom.

Curved walls are visually interesting and work well to soften sharp lines of an
interior space. The same effect can be created with a room divider, furniture,
or smaller design pieces such as ceramics and art. Here are some examples.
With snow falling this is the mood for the day. Dream a little dream each day.
Life has been a bit hectic lately so I’m channeling my new November attitude; simple and relaxed.
November means ‘the ninth month’ so why is it actually the 11th month in the year? The calendar used in the Western world today is the Gregorian calendar. It came into being in 1582 when Pope Gregory XIII accepted the system proposed by Aloysius Lilius. The original Roman year (from which both the Julian and Gregorian calendars are based) had only ten months and it was Numa Pompilius, a King of Rome around 700 BC, who added January (Januarius) and February (Februarius).
Texture is my thing lately, but what I like about mood boards is the images talk to one another. Loving these beautiful beiges, caramels and grays, wood, leather, stone, suede rust and burnished hues.
