Converted mill in the southern France
It is a converted old mill house from the 15th century set in over 7 acres of beautifully mature, landscaped gardens in the South of France. A few years ago, a young Scandinavian couple bought the house. The furnishings throughout are a blend of the original dramatic, tempered with an elegant Scandinavian simplicity. Rich fabrics and beautifully executed paint effect finishes, including several entrancing murals all create a colourful setting for the Provencal antique furniture are to be found around.
The great happiness with colours is clearly shown in the home of the family. Humour, straight forward and global atmosphere is characteristic for the style which mark the family´s big unique villa.
