The Fabulous French Chateau

The romantic interiors of the French Chateau: opulent drapes of finest silk and linens set against rough hewn stone and peeling paint; lavish chandeliers, bare plaster walls, bleached wood and ancient beams, the divine contradictions of the Chateau's charm

Such restful tones of faded colour. I would love to live in a place hundreds of years old, only needing a few embellishments to make it perfect. I wonder why interior fashion has come full circle to faded grandeur - perhaps a reaction to plastic, nylon and gaudy.

ABSOLUTELY DIVINE!!!!

I love that shower!!! What a divine idea!!!
I am running out of adjectives to describe your post !!!!

THANK YOU

The Paper Mulberry said...

You're welcome! It's such a simple idea and very practical if you add a liner to the linen shower curtain. The carved bressummer beam is a great way of combining old and new.

These interiors are so magical and dreamy. I particularly like the bed shown at the top of the page. Do you think this would be described as a four-poster or a campaign bed?

The Paper Mulberry said...

Oh me too Anna! I've seen them described as Campaign beds, presumably they were lighter to transport than a wooden four-poster??!!

Glenda these are amazing images, I love it all!
Fighting with our builder at the moment about the bathroom and his "industry standards" and no imagination, he would pale at the lack of conformity in these gorgeous rooms!

Thank you so much Glenda, for coming over and commenting! I'm very honored to have you "follow" my blog. Mine is not a deco blog, but you know from Pinterest that we share a love for old houses and French Country. And I can't get enough of the types of photos you post! This post resonates with me especially, as I am smitten with this Deleuze chateau. I'm slowly making my way through your old posts on this blog, and It's altogether lovely.
