The charming French home of two furniture designers

In the end, some change was a necessity. Built with almost
no foundations, the house was literally starting to slide down
the
hill, woodwork was rotting and the plumbing had been
undermined by
a tree. The house needed to be saved. 

Old family
albums were helpful, providing not only visual
references but also
reassurance. Anne-Marie could see the
touches her grandmother had
brought to the house when she
inherited it - including adding
bathrooms and changing wall
colours. 'I realised it is OK to love
the house in your own
way,' she muses. While Anne-Marie and
Emmanuel's aim was to
tread lightly, restoring the structure to its
original
appearance, they were also able to bring the house up to
date,
to suit the way that they live now.
