Quintessential Gallic charm with a fresh update
This three-storey late 19th Century classical bourgeois house in Bordeaux, France underwent a renovation of two floors that took three months – and look at it now. The entrance hall features charming details, which are celebrated by different tones. The white upper half , drawing the eye up to the ceiling, forms the perfect backdrop to the grey wall mouldings and the checkered flooring, which is typical of 19th Century classical bourgeois houses. The skirting boards in a bright turquoise create a visual pause between the mouldings and the floor. Above the vintage sideboard are Mathieu Mategot coat racks.
The lounge has a relaxed mid-century feel, using a 1970s lamp sourced from a garage sale and 50s inspired Sanderson wallpaper as the feature points in the room. The room’s friendly feel is enhanced by sunshine yellow open shelves and multiple seating options, making it ideal for a ‘chill’ room.
