RONAMAG sat down with Jean De Lessard to ask him a few questions and find out his take on the latest design trends!
1. What is your favourite RONA product?
2. What is your favourite colour at this time?
I like orange, blue
, pink and turquoise.
3. What is the next trend to watch for?
4. Who influences you?
The works of the Australian architect, Glenn Murcutt.
5. Once you have agreed to work on a renovation project, what do you do first?
We consider everything! We examine all the constraints we will be facing during the project, such as budget, architecture, mechanical and electrical components as well as all the other needs described by the client. Once we have gathered all these elements, we can start working on the space.
Then, we look into decor details
, such as lighting, texture, the size of the furniture and its location.
