Several years ago, this family moved from Paris to a 17th-century house in the suburbs of Lyon. Owner Stephanie’s main goal was to create a family nest here: warm, light and homey. To do this, it was necessary to breathe life into an old mansion, which had been empty for over 10 years. Stephanie has created an excellent mix of the classic style (moldings, stucco, tiled floor) and her own fresh solutions: bright colors of the walls, unusual decor, plants. Herbariums, collections of insects and birds create a special atmosphere in the interiors. Stephanie says that moving out of town allowed her and her family to feel happier, freer, healthier, and the interior itself also reflects this vivid outlook on life.
