A Country Retreat in Provence with Real Ibiza Cool

Studio Duggan's latest project, a stunning 5-bedroom French country house in Joucas, Provence (2)

This stunning 5-bedroom French country house in Joucas, Provence, was bought by London based Liz and Duncan Brown a few years back and was previously 3 gites which were unconnected internally. They called upon Studio Duggan to rejig the layout, creating a better flow through the property and to connect the living area to the outdoors and the beautiful views over the Luberon valley. It was to be the family’s dream holiday retreat where they could enjoy time with their two daughters and with friends.

It’s now a light and airy home with spacious rooms decorated in cool whites and neutrals combined with pops of colour and texture.

And what stands out for me?

The bright primary colours used in all of the rooms that really stand out against the white smooth surfaces.

The use of stone flooring that flows from room to room, and the natural materials used throughout like this lovely sisal rug edged in florescent yellow.

The open-plan family spaces that flow out into the garden. They are flooded with so much light they must surely lighten the mood of everyone there.

The industrial style lighting that contrasts with the modern furniture.

Those rough-sawn plank headboards! I assume that they serve a multitude of purposes including providing privacy in a downstairs bedroom.

The unlined linen curtains. They add colour and privacy but still allow a certain amount of light to flow through.

The concrete in the bathrooms. Smooth and cool to the touch.

Now that’s Ibiza cool.
