The keys to a graphic and colorful decoration


The Ministry Hotel by François Champsaur, interior designer.

Yannick Labrousse

The phenomenon has not escaped anyone: the hotels are real deco laboratories. At the Hôtel du Ministère, the interior designer François Champsaur has bet on a graphic and colorful deco ... Decryption by L'Express Styles.

As at the Hôtel du Ministère, where François Champsaur, interior designer, treated the furniture elements as pieces of architecture around which to circulate. The furniture is always installed in the center of the rooms and placed on very geometric grounds. Its graphic decoration gives pride of place to forms and space.

The principle

We choose two strong colors and harmonize an entire room with them.

We re-upholster an armchair in a color firecracker.

It is refined to the maximum.
