Les Parfums du Maquis
On a beautiful summer’s day, a couple of globetrotters arrive on the Isle of Beauty. To create their dream haven, they call on Les Ensembliers who share their common passion for homes.
The work begins with gutting the house entirely and starting from scratch. The decor is inspired by a Mediterranean style with white and blue dominating the color scheme.
Instead of using the traditional fishstyle motifs, our creative duo prefer a strong contrast of fabrics in simple solids, or highend graphics.
All walls showcase a rough wood painted white. In this case, travel souvenirs, many from Asia, live side by side with carpets, sofas and armchairs,
or custom-made cushions from Montreal, as well as other accessories purchased in Corsica and Paris.
"It’s a lifestyle where one lives as much outside as inside."
Living in Corsica implies taking full advantage of all that the Mediterranean climate has to offer: exceptional light, sea, pine trees and bougainvillea, terraces of all styles to enjoy the sun, comfortable furniture designed to withstand the elements, a fully-equipped summer kitchen, a shaded lounge area, day beds for sunbathing, a generous-sized swimming pool, and accent lighting to enjoy the balmy evenings.
"This home is simply paradise."
