Connection to the natural world
"People need water, not mixers" Jean-Marie Massaud stated when describing the approach he took during his first bathroom design project. This highlights his design credo. Inspired by nature, his designs seem to work without any technology. The bathroom collection from the French architect and designer also evokes images from nature and focuses on a connection to the natural world.

When the 18th-century woman of the house prepared dinner at Cold Spring Farm, she would have turned to the stone fireplace. There, she may have cooked a stew in the cauldron or baked the meal in the hearth below.
Rough-hewn beams and muted, colonial-inspired green create a classic kitchen feel in this Pennsylvania farmhouse.
Blend of Rustic and Refined
A simply built room can have architectural interest and look artistic at the same time if the elements of interior design are aesthetically used. Decorating small places to make them look larger is an exceptional art few people have command on. This living room in a rustic design easily grips the muted, brown shades with a few plants to add life. Walls are in lighter colors to make the room seem larger than it actually is, thus giving an idea of space. The neutral palette is enhanced by the beige cushions and sofas, and the rough look of the floor gives you the idea that it is a part of the “outside world”, which is definitely your garden or pavement. The stony floor work and creamy upholstered furniture complement the wooden ledges on the off-white walls.
