A Chat with Caroline Gomez
We have been long time fans of Caroline Gomez.. even writing about her work since the beginning of Bloesem! Besides being a designer, photographer, and art director, she also has a collection of home accessories and even authors her own books about travel and lifestyle.. Did you see them on our online store and pop ups?
It’s so nice to have her contribute to our latest Bloesem Gazette which features some of our favourite creatives from all over the world. Here’s more of what went down during our little chat with the lovely Caroline..
What is your favourite piece of furniture?
Rama chair by OXdenmarq. For me it is a perfect creation.. The right balance between aesthetics and evidence of form.
And the most interesting piece of furniture in your living room? Tell us about it.
My Danish couch dating 50 years back I found in a flea market for a few euros. It is beautiful, I love it.
Nice! We all love a good flea find. Do you have any tips for decorating on a budget?
It takes very little to create change. Use a lot of white in your decor, some well-chosen colours along with sleek and functional furniture that still has a healthy dose of personality.
What is the favourite spot in your home?
I love my bedroom.. to lie down on my bed to read a book or a magazine, to talk or play with my daughter. The light and the colours in my bedroom are very soft. It is a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.
What about your dream home? What are some of its attributes?
The use of crude materials, a soft atmosphere, large windows, lots of light, and a great view – especially of nature.
What’s a good style, or colour scheme for it to take?
Minimalist, because it gives the home space for you to inject some personality, and definitely white! Always a good base to build the rest of your room around.
Share with us your top 5 favourite furniture brands and magazines.
My favourite brands will have to be &Tradition, Menu, Muji, Nikari and OX Denmarq. For magazines – Rum, Milk Decoration, ELLE decoration Norge, Inside out, and Freunde von Freunden.
What trends do you expect this coming 2016?
I think 2016 will bring us even closer to the use of raw materials. Items will also be simplified to be more versatile and to allow more mixed sets.
Thanks again Caroline, for your support all these years!
