Studio Caroline Perrin creates exclusive designs for architects, editors and manufacturers.

On the border of the Decorative Arts and Artisans crafts, Caroline aims at designing the most beautiful texture effects and elaborate finishes. Her vision is to never forget that the prime objective of the materials and drawings she creates, is to be decorative. Her work must inspire positive emotions in the beholder. 

Each project is a new start, particular care is taken with play of light, the feel of energy, and colors are worked with subtlety. And, when possible, infused with a hint of poetry! 

Applications include the creation of exclusive wall finishings for an interior designer, the making of unique decors for an advertising or a luxury window display, or the design of prototypes and mock ups for areas as varied as ceramics, tiles, wallpapers and furnishings.

Expertise fields also include technical advice and product testing.
