TV France 2 recently did a full feature report on a Bemz makeover as part of its popular C'est au programme lifestyle series. The feature, called Change sofas...with a cover, was put together by the show's talented interior design reporter Sylvie Adigard in collaboration with the equally adept interior designer Laurence Garisson, the face behind the popular interior design site La Décorruptible.
The program features the makeover of an apartment belonging to Mathilde, a married mother of two, who opened up her doors to share her Bemz experience. Needless to say we’re thrilled!
Mathilde has two sofas in her living room. One is an Ektorp sofa, which has been sporting a white and beige slipcover for the past 6 years. Here, under the guidance of Laurence, Mathilde takes it from drab to fab in a Loose Fit cover in Lavender Rosendal Pure Washed Linen from Bemz. A heap of colourful throw cushions, also from Bemz, completes this simple yet amazing transformation.
As Laurence explains the choice of lavender is perfect for Mathilde’s interior, which veers towards a warm, vintage chic with a soul. She also points out that compared to the previous rather flat, monochromatic look of the room, the new colourful cushions break against the taupe wall, adding texture and interest, while bringing the room together as a harmonious whole.
Laurence’s colour choices were inspired by Mathilde’s blue Eames chair and notes of red throughout apartment. Not wanting to remain with a monochromatic colour scheme, she chooses cushion covers from the new Bemz Art Series Cushions, picking the Brown Kvarter geometric print to create movement and energy.
Laurence adds vibrancy, bringing out the rosy notes in the lavender sofa cover with a cushion cover in Fuchsia Tegnér Melange, which slots in perfectly with Mathilde’s red accessories and antique statement pieces. A final touch is grey, to link the taupe of the wall with the lavender of the couch cover.
“It's all about creating a unique and harmonious look that is true to the character of Mathilde and her family,” says Laurence calling it a wrap.
A big thank you to Mathilde, Sylvie, Laurence and TV France 2 for a super show and great coverage! All you Francophones and multi-linguals out there will be happy to know you can watch the feature report here.
