Lavish Living in Luberon

I like lots of air, order, personal objects and beautiful architecture - William Hodgins -
Is there any moment in the year when you crave luxury?  When you yearn to be pampered, waking up on satin sheets in a room adorned in antiques and to truly feel like one of the rich and famous?  Me too! 


You're invited to experience a guided tour of what I deem to be 'the residence of my dreams'.  




My ideal home has classical architectural proportions and is located in Luberon, in the countryside of Provence.  It is a home where people live, eat, bathe, sleep, relax and love.




In the summer months, this graceful setting is a hive of industry where groups of friends and relatives gather to enjoy the warmth and cool off.



On warm balmy evenings, this is the perfect spot for alfresco dining.  The fruit trees and lush plantings exuberantly spreading  in all directions.




A bold and handsome pair of stoneware planters positioned either side of the entrance to the formal pool look striking.  Order and symmetry to perfection.




The view out the back of the house......a significant artistic statement




A cosy seating and eating area off of the main kitchen created to enjoy the warming natural light in Spring and Summer.  The rustic dining chairs, have never looked better.




A graceful room with classical elegance, the carved mantel helps create a beautiful focal point.




These are a few of my favourite things.......




The integrity of old and beautifully designed and built furniture such as this is priceless.   




Why do antiques bring so much emotional comfort?




A private sanctuary to nourish yourself aesthetically in soothing tones of champagne and cream



And now for the most important room in the house...the master bedroom.  My private haven, a sanctuary from the hustle of everyday life. This room is light, airy and sensuous.  Pastel walls, traditional rush sofa, natural weave flooring and a bedhead to die for.





Outdoor terrace....a place where memories of happy times with family and friends accumulate.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing my destination dream home in Luberon
