Hi Michael, tell us about yourself and your projects!
I see myself as a professional in interior design but also as a passionate about design, beauty, cosmetics and travel. I propose a multidisciplinary design, which evolves with our way of life in a free environment where I share my knowledge with other stakeholders. I picture my studio composed of graphic artists, architects, engineers, technicians and designers, all freelancers, but sometimes working together on common projects. Create teams with one purpose: to share.
What’s your style and where do you find your inspiration?
I would define spaces that I create as timeless, simple, authentic who tell the story of the place and the person who lives in it. I want to make design more accessible and less elitist; Everyone deserves beauty and happiness. I find my inspiration through travel, both personal and professional, international design fairs, blogs and now a lot on Instagram by following the designers that I like all over the world.
What’s your favorite room at home?
The dining room.
This is the room I have never used much where I lived before, however in this house, since it is in the center, it acts as a gathering place both alone and with friends. This is where I drink my coffee in the morning while browsing my blogs & e-mails, where I work at the end of the day or where I relax on weekends. It is a great representation of my style; a warm atmosphere with unique pieces from Montreal and Scandinavia arranged with family heritage furniture.
Tell us 3 things about you that people ignore.
- I am extremely ambivalent about making personal decisions
- I really like to create my own cosmetics, I even think of making it a professional project
- During my studies, I worked at a prison in Bordeaux as a building operations technician
What are your next projects?
We are fortunate to work on several types of mandates, from residential projects to shops and even schools. Specifically, I am currently working on the realization of our house boutique project which will be partly located in our office and personal home, allowing our clients to visit a real residential project. We have created collaborations with several of our suppliers & artisans who are not represented in the shop, allowing them to represent & convey our project philosophy.
