"Look at usual things with unsual eyes" Vico Magistretti
Project Interior design Mougins: Nestled in the sleepy hills above Mougins sits the idyllic Villa Mougins. The property consists of three bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a large open living area – as well as beautifully manicured gardens and a sultry sun-drenched pool. The pool area is afforded hours of sunlight thanks to its southwest orientation. The area is tastefully decorated, the sun loungers are enveloped in cascading gardens – further enhancing the pool area’s Mediterranean ambience.
Interior design in Mougins tends to focus on creating familial homes and spaces for entertaining. The region is hugely popular with expat familes, and these failies require homes that suite their taste and lifestyle. The works undertaken at Villa Mougins were a total renovation and modernisation of all services. The home redevelopment was overseen by a team of project managers and skilled tradespeople. The two teams worked closely throughout the journey of the project.
All interior upholstery, curtains, and soft furnishing are finished in Loro Piana fabric, adding to the sumptuous atmosphere of the home. This fine material finish can be seen lovingly dotted throughout the client’s home. The living room’s charming character is bolstered by playful piping details on the sofas and throw cushions. Its south-facing orientation lends the space bountiful amounts of light throughout the day. The interior space has taken advantage of this by utilising a light colour scheme with gentle dashes of colour dotted throughout. Each destination in the open living area has its own distinct colour code.
The house’s blushing colour pays homage to the Provencal landscape in which the home is situated. These gentle pastel tones and hues are seen echoed in the choice of flowers seen in the gardens. These colours in the foliage are juxtaposed with the interior and exterior flooring. Upon the client’s request, all interior flooring chosen was a striking Travertino marble, this was matched with a French exterior stone.
Custom carpentry is featured throughout the project, all kitchen carpentry elements were bespoke and made by our talented carpenter team. The leaving room and dining areas feature a chic custom library and detailed panel work. Bedrooms also feature detailed panelling and plinth designs – as well as the wonderfully executed walk-in wardrobes.
The bedrooms are sympathetic to the design of the building in the colour palette and structure. All sleeping quarters are finished to a high standard, creating a relaxing ambience. The ensuite bathrooms are each given their own distinct character. The master bedroom’s ensuite is more faithful to Neo-classical design principles with their ornate finishes. Whereas the guest bedroom ensuite bathrooms have a more quirky character thanks to their Cole & Son, Arte, and Pierre Frey wallpapers
Our client’s love of music and entertaining allowed us to plan a home entertainment system that blended the inside into the garden and pool area. A state-of-the-art surround system operates in the interior and exterior of the property – creating the ideal solution for entertaining.
The manicured gardens were also part of the redevelopment of Villa Mougins. The gardens plans saw the exterior space go from neglected to thriving thanks to our careful attention to detail and horticultural acumen. The garden retention walls were strengthened and adorned with dozens of species of indigenous flora. The pool was modified upon request of the client. The pool size was increased and deepened, we also installed an exquisite mosaic. The renovated pool area is framed by two grand palm trees, drawing the eye to the end of the garden.
