Lived environments and high personal content flood this magnificent holiday home nestled in the middle of nature. Fresh grass meadows and centuries-old pines constitute an incomparable setting that its owner, Geneviève Lethu, has chosen as an escape valve to daily obligations. The famous French designer, along with her husband, acquired the property years ago and decided to devote all the necessary time to its rehabilitation; Creating an idyllic atmosphere takes time.
The result of such pampering is evident; whitewashed walls, arabic tiles, and shutters and demolition shutters beautify the facade and allow you to intuit an interior full of charm and coquetry. The use of own colors of the area for the outside played a fundamental role at the time of integrating the house in the nature.
The interior, very comfortable and devoid of artifice, is a reflection of the intimate spirit of the couple, who opted for the popular architecture of the environment and the use of materials typical of the area. Part of the charm that enamored them lay in the single floor structure, and in certain structural details that, of course, respected and enhanced. Perfect example of this are the exposed beams; some of them, painted in the same sea-green tone of the carpentry, stand out on the white roofs.
The kitchen deserves special attention, installed in a gallery attached to the house, and bright par excellence. With custom cabinets, to respect the gable roof, and a large central dining room becomes a nerve center, both for the sense of serenity it conveys, and for its pleasant balance. The same calm air is breathed in the master bedroom, decorated and dressed in white, and with a patent ornamental nudity that helps clear the mind of obligations and worries. A clear reflection of the premeditated search for rest in this delicious house renovated and decorated only to escape the worldly noise.
Busy flower beds, a freshly cut lawn and the smell of pine trees are unique aromas and sensations that are also part of this unusual holiday home, rehabilitated with special care to resemble the typical houses of the region.Personal decoration
