A house that looks like a Parisian art gallery
This mansion celebrates color, design and art. To receive, to exchange, to share are the stakes of this daring space, professional annex of Parisians sharing between the capital and the province. Designed in an accomplice association between its owners and the architect Fabien Pedelaborde, this place is an inspiring work retreat.
Entrepreneurs and collectors, they made this territory a place open to artistic thunderbolt, convinced of the benefits of the alliance between work and creation. Recently, constrained by the lack of space - their Parisian offices no longer enough to accommodate their collection - they decided to move to the provinces in a particular house at the same time space to live, place of reception privileged or finally residence of work . A significant step in their desire to combine memory with contemporary by cross paths. The architect Fabien Pedelaborde, conductor of the metamorphosis of this old school, evokes the degradation of the building by a succession of users, causing the disappearance of charm over the years. Moldings, floors, decorations will have to resurface without hindering audacity and modernity.
Colorful and friendly space in this particular hotel

On the blue wall, a video work by Nicolas Garait-Leavenworth, Thomas Bernard Gallery.
The major challenge remained to project the space towards a contemporary and convivial dimension. The volumes are imposing and sometimes unfold in one piece especially for the big stay. The idea of taming the space then passes through a gradient of green on walls sprayed by a craftsman lapped in technique ... on bodywork.

Deep emerald green for the northern part of the room we slide to the white, south side. The effect recomposes volume in a movement that emphasizes each stage of colorization by the presence of curtains tone on tone. The color frees the place from its history.
In the small dining room above Cleasson Koivisto Rune's oval black "Split" table, Tachini, and mottled chairs, a collection of "Akura" pleated paper pendants, bordeaux RKR, and an Ikea floor lamp. On the walls, work of Julien Nédélec.
His landmark? the original panoramic wallpaper of the stairwell sets the tone, justifying the choice of the violets, blues and greens associated that answer each other from one room to another.
The technical part of the kitchen is lit by a suspension of Inga Sempé, it is isolated by a library "Stacked" of Julien de Smedt, Muuto.
Placed in the niche of the cupboards of the dining room, a painting of Pierre Clerck.
