Our clients had bought a pretty little chateau in Upper Brittany and happened to see the Library we're also showcasing here. They loved it and asked us to create a dressing area for the lady of the house, in a small room between the bedroom and bathroom.

The challenge was to put every nook and cranny to good use while giving the room an air of perfect balance between spaciousness and coziness. So we recreated the room in our workshop, where we were able to carefully think out every corner, angle and dimension.

We decided to create a special area upstairs where gowns and other special occasion attire could be stored and showcased. The area under the stairs was rigorously compartmentalized to include drawers and storage areas, all reachable with ease. As pretty as the room had been, in time the walls had become uneven so corners were rounded to avoid injuries and all areas carefully designed to ease passage and let in as much natural light as possible, aided by a few light spots where needed.

After a meticulous assembly, the once empty little room seemed as if it had been a luxurious hall created by the old architects of a fairy-like chateau, and we had simply restored it to its former beauty.

The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere - in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture... No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming.
