Metz et Nancy Women - Winter 2017/18
In the winter issues of Nancy Femmes and Metz Femmes, a long article on the place of gold in interior design. Myriam Mazure (Bleu Jasmin, MA's distributor and applicator) gives her expert opinion:
"Myriam Mazur's favourite material is waxed concrete. She is also a representative of the Manus Aurenti network (manufacturer of decorative materials). When she runs a decorating project in parallel with her boutique, she doesn't hesitate to combine this raw material with gold. "The mineral aspect blends wonderfully with gold leaf, which I apply in all its thickness and relief to walls or furniture using a process called metallization. It's an innovative technique that's about to make a name for itself: a fine powder of pure metal is bonded by resins to various surfaces such as credenzas, woodwork, wall panels... for a sublime industrial chic decorating effect!" In her boutique, she offers a selection of gold-rimmed glass vases, photophores and mirrors that play with metallic alloys. "It's often in the spotlight, but I avoid mixing metals in the same room, preferring soft wall tones such as gray, nude pink, alabaster beige and terra-cotta. A cement-coated wall is a beautiful showcase for precious objects, softening their reflections while highlighting them. In my opinion, it's thanks to this contrast that gold expresses itself best. Without it, the effect is quickly "too much". "
