Located in Ars-en-Ré on the Île de Ré, the famous French West Coast island, that typical house gather my essentials. Its owner, Odile Baudry (founder of the brand Secret Maison, my ref when it comes to quality linen bedding or home textile) renovated the house 2 years ago to settled on the Island. She definitely put together my philosophy of a cosy and authentic home.
All materials are natural inside and outside. Cement tiles, wood, metal, glass and rattan are linked with the plain linen textile (flax, linen veil) and the natural sheepskin. Nature is invited inside through the collection of pieces picked up during walks at the beach on the dunes. The typical patio outside is being lived as a Summer room.
All the photos were shot by nomades (if you’ve been here before you’ve already met them, if not have a look at their beautiful online magazine) who wrote a wonderful article about Île de Ré. You will realised how much this home belongs to the local nature of the Island. Enjoy.
Shall we have a tour? Starting with the outdoor…
The patio is a real Summer Space.
The outside of the house is bath with the sun, winds, rain and the Ocean that give a soft patina to the outdoor.
The inside of the house is as natural as the outside.
Make your home like no other
& always choose the natural way…
