We talk to Paris-based artist and design Lea Augereau about her work, interior style and her exclusive LED neon design.
Hi Lea, please tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Léa Augereau, I live in Paris and I am a painter
Where are we today?
In my artist studio in Paris
How would you describe the style of your space?
I like vintage pieces, I particularly like designs from the ‘70s, and I don't like the space to be too crowded.
What 3 words would you use to describe your design aesthetic?
Cosy, soft and colorful
How do you want people to feel when they visit your studio?
I want them to feel at ease and protected like in a cocoon
You are having people over for drinks, what music is playing?
Rnb from the 2000's, Wizkid's Joro but it depends on the mood
Tell us about your LED neon
I chose to do a portrait and to use different colours to stay in the style of my paintings.
Was it a challenge to design in neon?
No, not at all! I created one of my signature pieces, I'm usually working with oil painting, that's what seemed best for a neon, however I was very curious to see the final result.
