Your furniture: rather modern, ultra design, family, pitcher?

Laure Manaudou: All the furniture is modern but for my next interior, I will choose rather antique furniture.

The most unusual or unexpected that can be discovered at home?

Laure Manaudou: A huge canvas that serves me pell-mell! I put photos of my daughter and every time I get friends, I take polaroid portraits.

An object or piece of furniture that you could not separate?

Laure Manaudou: My bed two meters by two. The comfort of my bedding is essential for my sleep.

Laure Manaudou: There are three colors that dominate: black, white and red!

Rather curtains?

Laure Manaudou: As I am lucky to have no vis-à-vis, I enjoy the large windows with light overlooking the sea.

The kitchen, rather open or closed?

Laure Manaudou: Closed, the kitchen is modern and functional. Everything is white and gray. It is about 10m2.

A dish unexpectedly?

Your last useful or futile purchase for the house?

Laure Manaudou: A little school desk for my daughter.

And the TV, which room?

Laure Manaudou: In the living room. But I never look at her.

Do you live with music or rather in silence?

Laure Manaudou: The music accompanies me all day and everywhere. I have playlists that I listen to on my Iphone and then in the house on Bose speakers. Right now, I'm listening to a selection of variety songs, covers ...

What is on your bedside table?

Laure Manaudou: A bottle of water, a candle and an indoor perfume. I need scented moods and zen. I discovered black tea candles at Honoré, a decoration shop in Marseille, and I also like those of Costes.

Do you dream of one more room? If so, for what purpose?

Laure Manaudou: A playroom for my daughter so she can spread out with all her toys and have a less messy room.

Laure Manaudou: A bit of both. Sometimes I let myself live but then I catch myself because I like everything is tidy.

Are you green plants, flowers, balcony, terrace, garden?

Laure Manaudou: I do not have a green thumb but I like being offered flowers.

And the next house?

Laure Manaudou: I will take my time because I am difficult. I would like to find a mansion with tiles and a high ceiling. The garden will be one of the criteria. Too bad for the sea view because it is difficult to reconcile the two. And I will then receive with pleasure the writing of Côté Maison to discover my new decoration!
