This fantastic 300-year-old French manor in the Champagne region is the home of wine maker Cedric and interior designer Emilie and their two daughters.

It is an impressive residence of 1500 square meters with lots of well-preserved original details (hello, gorgeous mouldings and marble fireplaces). The modern furnishings and black, industrial-inspired VIPP kitchen island provide such a bold and fabulous contrast with the historic setting. Such skillful play of styles and eras requires a fine eye, as well as the ability to know when to actually stop decorating and to not overdo it. Here, they successfully achieved the look by using a simple, understated palette and ensured a cohesive style throughout.

The place is furnished with a Togo sofa, Tome Dixon’s Globe lights, a large beni ourain rug, chairs by Ligne Roset and HAY, a stool by Menu, as well as shelves, lights and pedal bins by VIPP.

A French château that is stylish and family-friendly? Yes, please! Can I move in?

    Although I do like certain rooms within the property to feature low ceilings, particularly when paired with a wide strip of glass panes, I am absolutely ecstatic when I see high ceilings. After all, most of the historic monumental architecture that we all value so highly has high ceilings.
