Interview: Beauty Archi
Today is Geraldine Beauty of Archi who is ready to play the interview.
Do not hesitate to discover his blog which is full of culinary inspirations, fashion, decoration, design . . .
Can you tell us who you are and how you are dropped (e) in the world of decoration?
My name is Geraldine and I want the blog beautyarchi for over a year and a half. I speak Deco architecture, design, fashion and cuisine. I also like to present some DIY when time permits.
The decor is a universe that was always passionate. I remember being completely redone a stairwell with my parents when I was in high school with visual magazines. A few months later, I enrolled in space design, I took correspondence courses before joining the National School of Architecture. My focus is more on the scale of housing, living space, that building, I love working on small surfaces. After my graduation, I specialized in design for architecture.
What are your inspirations (designers, blog, shops, magazines . . . )?
I am extremely attracted to Scandinavian design, Nordic blogging, brand Ferm Living to name one. I have a particular interest in contemporary furniture. I would spend time antiquing in flea markets, but I have great difficulty in appropriating objects that belonged to other people. I definitely like the new, technological and intelligent materials, if we can say, raw and minimal lines. You will never see old furniture or upholstery home! I regularly read the Architectures, AMC or El Sketch journals. Northern side blogs, I devour daily A merry Mishap or Ellens album. On French blogs, I'll let you see my blogroll because the list is long!

Your shopping list Deco?
The list is long, I recently moved, many things make me feel like I need appropriating places and give character to this new home.
I retain the suspensions The Six Week Boutique self-assembly for twenty euros, designated by Tamara Maynes, new Ikea storage boxes cheap graphics that I like very much. Storage side, I can not miss Varpunen bags, perfect for hiding clutter of everyday life. In the same graph mind, I take a cushion in Ferm Living to brighten a sofa.
For furniture, I like the simplicity of the coffee tables of the Editorial designated by Philippe Riehling, and fine Ondarreta chairs, white and wood. Side lights, I remember once more the simple lines of the suspension Muuto and table lamps Bo Concept.
Finally, in terms of objects, I love the colorful candle There's no fire in the lake, bamboo basket Douglas Legg and Eva Solo Tea, perfect for warm hands on the couch watching a movie !
A decorative piece that you think will never go out of style?
Why not a Eames chair? I said like modernity, but some designers had this pioneering vision and innate translation of what might satisfy and fill the user. A drawn object there half a century can still be relevant and charmed generations. I think investing in this type of furniture reflects the love of design and can transmit important values, the history of an object..
