delisting of a holiday home

Transformation and decoration of a holiday home facing the dune.

After six months of work entrusted to the Bordeaux decorator duo COUTUME{STUDIO}, this former “beach hut” was transformed into a warm house in whitewashed and chalky colors.


A most sophisticated “tailor-made” rehabilitation, from the redistribution and optimization of spaces to the designed, recycled and repurposed furniture.
Built as a refuge, the holiday home is built around a courtyard,... a glass roof was created to provide light and shade on the courtyard side, while maintaining privacy in contrast with the exposure wide of the house.
The decorators Karine and Frédéric AGUIARD dressed the cupboards with old washed and brushed formwork boards, and imagined access to the upper floor via a miller's ladder supported on a raw beam for a step, in the bathroom, a sink of community found and enhanced with the marble of an old dressing table serves as a sink; everything gives style to this inspired recycling!..

Between the simplicity of the raw whitened and washed wood, its polished concrete floor, its recovered materials and antique objects, its exposed stone walls or even its color chart navigating between sand and clay, it looks like it was washed by the waves , placed on the dune as an offering from the wild Atlantic coast.

This holiday home is cozy, and “expresses” the “bohemian chic” spirit of its owners.
