Opening a window to look out across the magnificent Bay of Saint Tropez, with its magnificent views, is amazing. However, Saint Tropez is memorable to me for another reason: it is where I worked with a family to completely transform their home, ensuring it suited their tastes and lifestyle.

The property was built in the 1980s and was originally a holiday home.

Constructed on two levels, the family wished to change everything to create additional space with open plan living.

We are able to work with clients who want to undertake the design element themselves – as in this case – or we can help by providing this service. At the beginning the family had their own very clear ideas and as the project progressed, we gave further advice as to how it could be achieved.

Key to creating extra space was converting the basement area. We completely transformed this void space by installing two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms in each, plus fitted a small kitchen and a cinema room. This means that it can now be used as a separate dwelling if desired.

There are many features of the completed project that I am proud of, including the beautiful bathrooms, the freestanding bath, the decorative tiles and shower rooms. The family chose the style they wanted and all of the furnishings and fittings including tiles were sourced locally. We supplied everything.

If you would like to discuss your project – whether it is a complete transformation or for a specific area of your home – please get in touch.
