Living in limited square footage forces you to think of ways of cheating the eye to make the space look larger. Paint is one of the easiest ways to accomplishing this. Designer Caroline Gomez uses colors to define different areas in this French apartment, adding a few extra visual feet to this charming home. Her secret is to never paint an entire room in the same color, but strategically chooses a wall, or parts of it, to paint and create a sense of separation. For her, color is the perfect ally to establish a mood in a room and tell a story. By the way, how sweet is her color palette? I'm not much into pastels, but I totally love the color scheme she chose for this nest. I'm also feeling her “slow design” style where natural materials and pure forms are key.
