Colour Me Happy
The wonderful home of Danish home accessories designer Charlotte Gueniau is a perfect example of just how exhilarating pure colour can be. Charlotte herself says she can't live without colour and pattern, which she uses to give her house warmth and serenity — something she and her French husband Philippe both craved after a hectic life in Paris. Dreaming of a more peaceful place to raise their son, they returned to Denmark, where they've surrounded themselves with antique furniture, objects and fabrics — much of it brilliantly coloured, but happily and perfectly coexisting. The resulting atmosphere is serene and energetic, modern and comfortable — a perfect family home. More (in French) here at Marie Claire Maison.
