This artlessly chic guesthouse in the heart of St. Remy, in the heart of Provence, captivates me. The warm colors of the furnishings, the art, the walls and floors immediately signal welcoming comfort. Traditionally Provençal in design, the 18th C. maison has been flawlessly renovated with a modern edge that doesn't let you forget you have arrived (luckily!) in one of the hippest villages in tout France!
stepping into this wonderful room is a feast for the designers' eye:
black and white marble tile and limestone fireplace set the stage;
the gorgeous pillows that subtly reference the "fabrics du soliel" ...
the traditional Provençal fabrics with a modern twist are cushy and
welcoming; the chandelier, the painting and the quatrefoil panel
leaning artlessly against the wall all speak of casually chic Provençal elegance
this little vignette tucked under the stairs welcomes
with its vintage iron daybed done with warm corals, deep
aubergines and lots of striped pillows that evoke the feeling
of awnings in a St. Tropez beach house; gorgeous
tomettes on the floor, the easy campaign table and the
modern art photography on the wall .. love them all!
linen upholstered headboards always create a feeling of cozy comfort;
paired with those ruffled soft Euro pillows and the deep
rose color bedcover, the perfect setting for a good night's rest; I
love the way the sconces reference the shape of antlers without
actually being antlers!
this Directoire bed sets an elegant tone for this full height bedroom; the deep
purple of the bedcover and upholstered head and footboard
are accented with the poufy lavender pillows;
the silver and acrylic lamps are very chic with the rich palette and
keep the room anchored in modernity; the gauzy but deeply colored
curtains are perfect for keeping the bright Provençal sun at bay
this sweet room has it all for your petit dejeuner (in winter or
bad weather... otherwise you're outside on the patio!) before
heading out to explore the village:
warm woods, tile floor, French doors that let in
a lot of natural light, rich wine-colored walls
the lovely lacy sign outside lets you know there is
something very special going on inside...please come in!
a friendly, comfortable suite is perfect for a family for relaxing;
the linen chaise and the deep rose daybed invite relaxing and lingering;
the terracotta floor is cool to the touch and the deep purple
gauzy curtains again are perfect...unfussy and elegant in their simplicity
a French door to the patio, hexagonal
tomettes on the floor, the elegant rosy
curtain hung simply with rings on an
iron rod, the two-color painted wall
and that little coolie lampshade
all speak of Provençal chic
the most is made of this room under the eaves with gauzy curtains letting
in lots of natural light; the room is welcoming with the plush wine and
rust colors of the sofa and the bergeres; light wood floors keep the mood
clean and simply elegant
charmingly Provençal bathroom with its deep window sill, double
porcelain sinks, painted walls, individual framed mirrors and
adorable sconces make the daily toilette a joy!
the palette throughout the guesthouse features these
rich earthen tones of aubergines, lavenders, wines and
rusts...the colors of Provence
and happily there is a Diptyque shop right here..
the iconic logo and packaging speak of the
ultimate in chic scents for body and home
