Home Gallery: Interior decoration is environmentally oriented

Like clothing fashion, interior decoration is evolving. In 2022, we must live in perfect harmony with nature. If you are not lucky enough to have a garden, it is always possible to bring plants and shrubs into your apartment.

Like a ram in its nest, the Reunionese loves natural rest. The Home Expo 2022 will allow many visitors to begin an interior renovation project. The trend is already towards the environment with wooden floors, hanging plants and large openings to the outside thanks to the climate of Reunion. Far from pollution and noise, everyone, according to their needs, wants to live in eco-friendly housing.

Lianas and Hanging Gardens are very popular. In Reunion, it was hotels that launched the houseplant trend of the 2000s. Today, it’s a veritable business that has flourished across the island: Why aren’t there houseplants? Living room? On a wooden stand or in a container, the plant or vine requires little maintenance (spray two to three times a week) and will capture the curiosity of your guests. “The Tillandsias, or Air Girls, have been in high demand since the beginning of Salon de la Maison. It grows with light, a little shade and a lot of love”releases Danielle Rosay, specifying that the lifespan of these well-maintained plants is about seven years.

Integration of wood in the interior

Parquet or tile? The tiles are long lasting and easy to clean. Some prefer it over parquet for its durability and hardness, and make a crucial argument that it will not be attacked by termites. Always more traditional and fashionable, the warm wood floor still has supports.

Yesterday again, at the Chodron Exhibition Center, several orders were placed at the fair: “Above all, you have to choose the parquet floor for your place of residence. We do not lay the parquet itself in an apartment, house, office or workshop. Seek the advice of a flooring specialist before buying “we were told in the Espace Déco Réunion suite.

The The bedroom should not be neglected. Space, greenery and luxury, this is what visitors to the 33rd home show are asking for. Among the rooms to be equipped is the bedroom. Everyone will be able to think of the best possible arrangement between the bed, furniture and interior decoration. Here again, the example of luxury hotel rooms gives ideas for individuals. By Indigo will give you the best advice between decorating walls, logs to store your belongings and choosing linen to sleep better.

Wood, a safe bet. Feeling groomed means first taking the right advice. Living on an island where lush plants are inspiring can change your mind about how you furnish your home, even in a city. For fifteen years Matthias Chareau has lived in Reunion and pursues his remarkable profession of carpentry. Among his creations is the Basilou desk made of tamarind wood, which was a bestseller in previous editions of the Salon de la Maison. Bed, bathroom furniture, shelves, table or ladder, Matthias works to order: “My furniture is made of tamarind, cryptomeria, petit, iroko wood, etc., in natural, varnished, oiled or painted finishes. Sensitive to sustainable development, various woods meet PEFC certification and my products are eco (solvent free). » The Home Show takes place daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sunday, May 8.
