I do not know if you are one of those who deeply love life. Those for whom each day represents a piece of happiness, which adds up and enriches their experience. I am. I have this propensity to appreciate just as much the banalities of everyday life as the surprises of the unexpected or the grandiose of the exceptional. The power of seduction exercised by LIFE on me is total and prevents me from feeling gloomy too long.
But, after a winter when intense cold, rain and smog alternately tint the landscape shades of gray and weigh down the mind, we need to “rainbow” our moods and stir our senses. The influence of colors and lights on our moods is undeniable. Let’s go with the yellow, lilac, orange, fuchsia … all the palette of happy hues to inspire this spring issue. We invite you to a colorful CELEBRATION with, at the top of the list, receptions “à la carte”, one of which, country, is impregnated with pink and the other, more urban, of lime green. To better host, Mr. Bernard Pepin, colorist in chromology and designer, makes us benefit from his expertise by highlighting the influence of colors on the appetite and describing how some are recommended or not in the kitchen or dining room.
