Bénédicte Pierens and Raphaëlle Levet first met while working together at French interiors magazine, Elle Décoration. After training at the prestigious Ecole Boulle in Paris, they went on to established independently their own interior design agencies, working separately on residential and commercial projects.
In 2017, their professional paths crossed again when they joined forces for the renovation and design of Hôtel Doisy in Paris. Following this, they co-founded their Paris-based interior design agency, BR Design Intérieur.
With its sophisticated simplicity and lightness of style, BR Design Intérieur creates inspiring interiors, with a touch of femininity. Their projects are defined by a relaxed, Parisian-chic attitude. Taking inspiration from the past to create contemporary interiors with personality.
BR Design Intérieur’s singular and creative designs give preference to unexpected material associations, imaginative solutions to structuring a space and custom-designed furniture and fittings. Their delicate and feminine style attaching importance to the use of natural light and subtle colour palettes.
For Hôtel Doisy, BR Design Intérieur’s sophisticated and elegantly unconventional design mixes botanic references with natural materials and muted colour palettes. Flora and vegetation provide a guiding thread, and the use of cane and natural wicker is also omnipresent throughout the hotel’s design.
