If you have to be constrained in a house for 3 or 4 months just like we have being through right now in this pandemic crisis, what kind of house you would rather choose to live in, a minimalism house or a house full with vibrant decor. I guess different people will have a different answer. It is just like that some artists need a busy urban social life to get inspired while others need that isolated quiet environment to really tap into their creativity fountain. Today, we are going to tour a newly restored historic French manor which is owned and designed by Paris-based ELLE Decor A-List architect and interior designer and his partner the 1stdibs.com co-founder William Holloway. The reason we chose this house today because we truly want to have some fun. Too often, people fear to take a bold step to play big and they are very strict on what they like and what they dislike and they will fortuitously follow the rules. But life is fun and it is more fun to take it is easy and to be open-minded. So this is kind of the vibe the house we are going to tour today indicate–an easy-going French country house with all kind of things that make you wonder.
The settee and French chair create an conversational zone which set the tone for the whole house—cozy, intimate and inviting.
This is probably one of our favorites in the house. Gold and red are often used in a French Chateaux to have that luxurious vibe. We love how they mix the Moroccan rug, mid-century modern center table, contemporary artwork, traditional gilded mirror and wall scones and a sputnik 1950’s chandelier. The whole set here for sure will stimulate a creative mind.
The dark color envelops this guest bedroom to make it like a cozy jewel -box get-away. Who wouldn’t love a chaise lounge facing a window with a stunning view.
