The Innate Sense of Mix and Match.

Alix Thomsen and Blanche 6 years old

Alix Thomsen is an artist with a crazy personality! Formerly a fashion designer for her own brand, she is now spreading her wings and heading for new horizons in the world of interior design. First, a job for friends, then a second one, then a hotel. And, what’s more, it was she who designed the decor of both the Hotel du Temps in the 10th arrondissement in Paris and the Hotel Habituel. In her extravagant universe, the art of mix and match takes on a whole new meaning as she transforms every nook and cranny into a succession of little scenes that tell us beautiful stories. In each room, styles and eras rub shoulders, colliding delightfully and with infinite delicacy. A Parisienne who has mastered the art of staging. Objects that combine brilliantly, often found, sometimes offered by her friends. Her style? Going against the current trends. Alix doesn’t conform to any conventions, she likes sharp contrasts, while still retaining the coherence of the story she is telling. A strong commitment for a stylish decorator who has been making a name for herself for several years now.

Alix could you present yourself?

Alix

I am Alix Thomsen, Parisienne, 31 years old, Designer and Decorator, Mother to a 6 years old little girl.

What do you love most about your apartment?

Alix

The light and the fifth floor. I’ve lived in some beautiful apartments but always on the first floor so the idea of having a view with ability to see the skyline excited me a lot. I love also the simple organisation in the apartment, we have four rooms in a row which are of almost identical size. They have no obstructing light or shaded corners, I found this to be a real joy.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Alix

From the space itself, it’s usually the place that speaks to me first and it tells me what to do with it.

How would you describe your style?

Alix

My style is to associate the freedom of what should not necessarily be, finding balance within imbalance. Sometimes that’s applied sparingly, sometimes by adding contradictions. I enjoy references, I find them to be poetic, but I also like to tell untold stories.

Do you have a bargain of which you are most proud of?

Alix

In my home nothing is expensive in terms of value it’s all about the hunt for items!

Do you collect anything?

Alix

Absolutely not, it’s something I’m just not familiar with…

The piece of your dreams?

Alix

An Aubusson tapestry or a Sonia Delauney rug. But what I really wish for is to create artisanal furniture with experienced craftsmen!

An artist or designer that makes you dream?

Alix

Le Corbusier. I also appreciate when artists create their own interior identity, the houses of Jean Cocteau, Frida Khalo and Yves Saint Laurent are wonderful examples.

Your favorite colour ?

Alix

This fluctuates depending on the mood I am in and the context of use. Currently, I am really attracted to yellow as it is a difficult colour to tame which is a challenge I like.

The last restaurant you last recommended?

Alix

In Paris, Abri. It’s Japanese inspired gastronomy with a modest spirit.

Three addresses for furniture ?

Alix

Antiquités Frédéric Sportis, a little antique store on Rue Saint Georges- a street I love a lot. M.A. Dauliac, is a boutique for art deco lights that I often frequent and finally the shops lining the Hôtel Drouot auction house.

Hi,

I’m so interested in this line of work…especially her niche in design and interior architecture. Could anyone tell me about her academic background?

Thanks!
