I have posted photos of Frédéric Méchiche’s medieval village house in Hyères before. The red toile bedroom is in his place. I like the fact that he has different summer and winter textiles in here (see link below)
I am particularly interested in how a famous French designer has approached a restoration similar to ours and his take on French style is simple and refreshing. He has preserved the old and original and added in his own pieces and finishes seamlessly.
Interestingly, he does not hesitate in using an occasional more luxurious piece or grander textiles here and there. A true family home would evolve this way over the years.
I have seen so many overdone places in France; this is a house that truly celebrates what it was and what it now is; to me it is quintessentially French- see more at http://www.hemis.fr/?idPageWeb=95&afficherVignetteDuSujet=519&nouvelleRecherchePhoto=1
