A Designer's French Chateau

I hope you don't mind another Charles Spada post, but I thought you'd enjoy these photos of his Normandy, France home as much as I did.  All photos are from the Polish magazine Weranda  (photography by Andreas von Einsiedel/East News). 

The exterior of the chateau, formerly a hunting lodge.

The incredible chandelier is original to the chateau.

The walls are a warm, soft gray and the wood floors are laid in a classic herringbone pattern.

Antique framed prints, animal print fabric and touches of damask highlight the main room.

A bold leopard print fabric covers this sofa.  I think one needs a room this large (and a skilled interior designer like Charles Spada) to comfortably pull this off.  

This French baker's table and plates accent a dining room wall.

A larger collection of plates dominates another wall.  On the left, you can see the gray checked drapes at the window.


A charming kitchen with brick floor, large hearth and modern stove.


A collection of creamware (or is it ironstone?)

Here's a peek of the pretty gray and blue toile fabric of one of the bedrooms.


More antique prints and frames.

Plenty of reading material....

And here's a small WC tucked behind a paneled wall in the bedroom. 

Visit the Weranda link above in Google and you can translate the magazine article into English.  Enjoy!
