Interior architecture of a villa in the south of France
When this villa in France was going to be built, All-In Living was approached to do the interior architecture. We were involved with this project from day one, so we could play a part in designing the architecture. It was crucial that the new building would fit in its natural surroundings (Mouchins) and focus on the spectacular view. All-In Living styled not only the new villa, but also the old guesthouse on the same terrain.
The interior of the villa is warm and intimate, making it a very comfortable place to be in winter as well. The living room is divided into two seating areas: one for gathering around the fireplace, and one for snuggling up in front of the TV. Because this huge open space is now sensibly organized, it creates a cosy feel.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, where the greater part of the day is spent. To accommodate this, we made the kitchen comfortable and spacious using lots of wood. This creates a warm setting full of character. The huge tree trunk table provides plenty of space for the whole family and any guests. It doesn’t only serve as a dining table, but also as a place to work, read or play games. The colour scheme on the ground floor consists of warm, natural tones. Lots of green, combined with soft earthy tones and wood. This combination makes the house look lived in and authentic instead of newly built.
On the first floor, you can find the master bedroom and two boys’ bedrooms. All these rooms have their own look & feel.
The master bedroom is divided in two areas separated by a wall which doesn’t quite run across the entire length of the room, leaving an opening on either end. The bed is on one side of the wall, a walk-in closet on the other. Because of the two openings, the room appears spacious. Through the entire house we’ve used Élitis wallpaper, which creates an atmospheric effect and makes a statement at the same time.
The boys’ bedrooms both have a huge photoprint on the wall matching the boys’ characters. One room has an African theme; the other room has a photo of New York. With these images, the rooms are personal and boyish.
The professional photos will be published soon.
