This Old Green Chateau

When Isabelle and Hubert Dubois-Dumée, owners of French interiors Les Petites Emplettes, found a 12th century chateau in complete disrepair, they knew they had struck gold. It took two years to restore the castle (drawbridge and moat included!) into a perfectly rustic and charming home for their family. I just love how they’ve preserved so many of the original details, not forgetting the home’s heritage. And the pops of bright green throughout give it that updated freshness it so deserves.

  7. Everyone thinks each room needs its own color scheme but not always…I love the repeating greens and unfinished walls! Ah, for a castle of my own…
