Before your visit to Décoration le Corbusier’s shop

Before you meet with a professional who will help you choose your paint, it is recommended that you do a few things to make your meeting easier. First, it is important to analyse your present decor and the components that complete it. If it is a room that you want to modernize by changing the colour of the walls, take a picture of the entire room and the colour schemes there. This will guide the adviser in the colour suggestions he will be able to offer you. It is important to base your choices on the furniture and decorative items you already have, in order to coordinate everything to go together.


On the other hand, if you’re fully redecorating your room from scratch, it’s therefore time to look for your inspirations! Painting is one of the first things to choose to determine the style of your decor. Of course, interior decoration magazines are an invaluable source of influence and practical advice. There are several web platforms that present you a wide range of decor options to help you determine your tastes and desires. Following your selections, prepare your file on your mobile phone to show it to the store advisor. In fact, Benjamin Moore—directly online—showcases its vast collection of colours in decorated rooms. This is the ideal way to select your preferences before you meet with your advisor. If you have no ideas, don’t worry! A decorator can help you guide the vision of your project according to the latest trends or propose timeless styles.

When the time comes to meet with the interior designer, it’s your turn to present your inspirations and desires for your project.
