La Manoir in St Emilion

This beautiful family home had recently been fully restored and was being run as a guest house. The new owners were keen to turn La Manoir into a comfortable family home where they could entertain friends and family in an informal and functional atmosphere.

The design was inspired by the traditional French country manor house. Using muted base palettes of warm whites, light taupes and French greys, this provided the perfect background to off-set classical French 18th-19th century antique pieces, quality painted furniture, family-sized deep sofas and a state-of-the-art media room.
