FOR DEFINITE, A HOME IS A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD TRULY BE YOURSELF AND IT SHOULD RECKON YOU TO THE UTMOST ALL AT ONCE. NONETHELESS, CITY DWELLERS MOSTLY COMPROMISE WITH THE EXISTING STRUCTURES WHEN IT COMES TO DECORATING THEIR APARTMENTS OR CONDOMINIUMS. THE GURU, CAROLE BOY, SAID YOU DON’T HAVE TO ALWAYS GO WITH THE FLOW AS SHE SHARES HER EXPERIENCES HERE.   “I love redecorating,” affirmed Carole after I asked her what her dream job is like. To my surprise, she said she would rather choose to renovate the existing space because “I like to break the wall!” than to work on a new blank one. With the owned place, she could see the function of the space that is being used by the owner in reality and it’s her passion to enhance it. Of course, prior to every project she took on her shoulders, finding tune with the owner is crucial. “I can’t work if they are not open to my suggestions and ideas,” Carole claimed. Although Carole spent most of her life in Paris and the US, she’s into everything Asian, especially Feng Shui in which she referred to as the central of life and incorporates it heavily in her work. Another factor that she always keeps in mind is the lighting, as she quoted, “Good space with good lighting is awesome. Good space with bad lighting cannot be good. Bad space with good lighting could be good.” The use of material is at the forefront as well when it comes to decorating a place. And for Carole, she prefers natural ones with wood, stone and fabric as her main substances to play around. “There should not be more than three materials being used in one place. One has to keep that in mind,” Carole added. Her passion for natural materials runs very deep as she recalled, “I used to live in New York and had a gallery which was called Modern Stone Age in Soho area. It specialised specifically in natural stone and did interior design with natural materials. After we came to Thailand in 2004, we opened a business as an interior design and also we selected very fancy Thai furniture by new designers that made lamps and sofas, and accessories, then exported them to NY to sell in our store dubbed ‘Lux Baan’ which means luxury house.” “I love everything I do, including being an opera singer,” said Carole. Apparently, whenever she travels her mind cannot quite set at ease as she always browses through decorating aspects  of the place, while her brain would start tickling how to make it ‘more’ right. “There are many projects that I was involved in and found it very dear to heart. One of my favourite ones is renovating this duplex apartment in Bangkok which appears to be very cubic and filled with antiques, all very precious. What I did was give each piece a space to breathe so they won’t clutter together.” The wind has changed and now Carole is back in Paris with an expectant plan of returning permanently to Thailand,
