When you enter Alain and Chantal’s country home in the Corbieres, you feel like you have landed at the home of “les enfants terribles” by Cocteau. The couple has never ceased to create and collect art, antiques, textiles, objects of all sorts. They are both teeming with ideas and their home makes up a stimulating, ever-changing mood board for their lucky guests.
What is it about exactly? Is it the nobleness of the premisses, the true sense of mix and match of the owners? Their warm welcome? It is a bit of everything. They both have a talent for staging original, elegant compositions with found objects which resonate with each other and make strong esthetic statements. The essentials and non-essentials co-exist, the XVIIIth century and 60’s design, fashion pictures and African art.
The fundamental particles of elegance.
