A dedicated design professional, Lineaire Design’s own Dominique Bonet shares some helpful techniques to
help enliven your home interior.
T I P S BY D O M I N I Q U E B O N E T
5. Fab Floors: The first big decision you need to make when you
start doing your home is flooring. Floors set the mood, style and
tone for the rest.
Neutral Colors: Try to have all the major pieces of your décor
in neutral tones, so you can add pops of color though pillows,
throws, etc. Changing these elements gives your home a new look.
Dimming Effect: Indirect light is essential to creating a nice
ambiance. Never forget dimmers, they can add a lot of nuance.
Enlightening Ambience: To make a room more homey and
inviting, choose warm white lights, around the 3500 Kelvin
scale. Cloth Couture: For me, linens should always be white. This
gives them a crisp, clean and elegant look.

Less Is More: Don’t overfurnish; all the pieces need their own
space to breath.
Build To Scale: Proportions are very important; furniture needs
to have the right scale in reference to the space.
Drape Shapes: If you’re lucky and have high ceilings, enhance
that look with long drapes. If your ceilings are low, solar shades
will probably look better.
Mirror, Mirror: Mirror placement is crucial, not only can it
help make a room appear larger, but placing mirrors directly
across from windows will help bounce light into the room.
Aromatic Accessories: Fragrances can really generate
a sense of well-being, but always choose soft and fresh
aromas. The right scent can give a relieving feeling as soon
as you walk into your home.
11. Cozy Chotchkies: For me, there’s nothing like books and
fresh flowers to turn a house into a home.
