Shabby-luxe dream house in the French countryside

Farmhouse in Biarritz-Isabel Lopez-Quesada-01-1 Kindesign

This countryside farmhouse was created as a personal dream house by designer Isabel López-Quesada, located near the seaside town of Biarritz, in southwestern France. A dilapidated farm, the house was rehabilitated as a haven with freshness and light. The house is white with gray painted shutters and a gable roof, nestled on four acres of gentle hills, meadows and oak trees. A spacious pavilion was added to the original home, as well as a guest room and a swimming pool. Created with a shabby-luxe look, the home was restored to its former glory with everything left simple and natural, whitewashed walls, doors and old wooden beams. A relaxed sophistication was infused into the interiors through furnishings and recovered wooden flooring with textured area rugs. Some areas of the home was left a unfinished plaster on the walls such as in the kitchen, dining room, home office and master bedroom retreat. The designer mixed antiques and flea market finds with more expensive designer furnishings and some inherited furniture. Large objects were selected to fill the spaces to make the home warm and cozy.

The range of fabrics in white were chosen with splashes of blue and a touch of red. Natural selection in rustic finishes of linen, burlap and cotton were also infused into the design scheme. A mixture of fabrics were selected of Ikats, stripes, suzanis, Provencal and Basque-French. The designer likes to escape to this heavenly retreat to see the changing of the seasons. Preparing the landscape for spring planting, soaking up the beach in the summer and enjoying the changing of the leaves in autumn.
