Soon on a trip to Bordeaux? Or again Biarritz? Whatever your destination, here are 4 good places not to miss if you spend the summer in the South West.Biarritz
A little hidden, a little reserved for initiates, the Negozio is a bistro wine bar, a bar of friends, 200 meters from the beach of Biarritz. An airplane propeller, a dugout canoe and a surfboard dominate the recollected and relaxed decor, a mix of travel memories and stories of a lifetime, in a vintage and cozy atmosphere, with a background of funk and jazzy music. The market cuisine is made with little onions and good humor, a cocktail of trendiness and simplicity, and we linger as a cocktail drink that would extend late into the night.

From the meeting with a century old barn collector in Canada was born a simple concept: to rehabilitate these old woods and to put the beauty and the charm of their colors aged by the time in the service of the decoration and the construction. Gray woods, weather-red colored planks, red, white or black from old 200-year-old Canadian barn frames, decorate the new Bois Bois Ancien showroom. Bertrand Guichard is the craftsman. This madman of decoration, "hunter of objects", took care of the staging.
From the bedroom to the living room to the kitchen, it presents a thousand and one ways to use these beautiful woods: parquet or cladding, in the form of coffee tables, lamps, wall sconces, living room, garden huts , kitchen items or whole buildings. All in an infinity of colors and patinas and associated with Andrew Martin wallpapers, with blue stone from Belgium and Turkey.

The old shop, well known to Libournais and all those who count in the region in terms of organization of events, has grown and has invested the neighboring mansion, transformed into a showroom to accommodate furniture and objects very deco. Patrice and Nathalie Taiton sign here a decor as there is no equivalent in the entire region. The most beautiful brands appear, contemporary or more classical, without forgetting the rarer edition objects or edited in mini series. This house of the seventeenth gives pride of place to the most current lighting without forgetting the immense space devoted to flowers. This couple of indefatigable aesthetes sign the most beautiful staging of events, bringing their expertise and their most beautiful pieces for ephemeral decorations always successful.
