Le jardin secret
Les Ensembliers designed their elegant dressing room with a sophisticated, well-travelled woman in mind. The space, which perfectly melds form and function, is filled with design elements that speak to her cosmopolitan and self assured nature.
The ante chamber to the lady's dressing room continues to tell the story of a well traveled life. Inspired by fine luggage from the house of Goyard in Paris, the built-in dressers speak to luxury travel cases a bygone era with their textural wallpapered insets, stunnung black (hornhandles, and decadent purple-lined drawers.
"It feels kind of Asian, but mixed with French, sort of European, a little bit of contemporary, what woman would not want this?"
The concept of the decor began with the spectacular peacock finish on the door fronts of the closets that Les Ensembliers developed with their artisans for this project.
As with any highly treasured jewel box, exquisite finishes tell the story. With classical space planning establishing the room's perfect proportions, Les Ensembliers turned their attention to the decadent art deco inspired details.
"I think it represents us because we have put what we loved into it and it speaks to us."
"We assembled about seventy-five artisans to work on this room and we convinced them to put their heart and soul in this adventure. That is why you can feel the love in every detail, every component, and every surface... that is what we are all about." - Maxime Vandal
