ProvenCe

The Chateau d'Andouis, dating from the 10th century sits on top of a rock surrounded by gorgeous countryside. It offers a majestic 360˚ view of the beautiful Vallée de L'Aygues. North of the chateau lies Luberon, originally Ansouis, a military fortress built to protect the entrance to Provence, in the south of France. Ansouis is called the Pearl of Luberon because of its beautiful terraces, the warm color of its walls, and its imposing presence. 

With a Provencal Chateau backdrop, we decided to keep the details refined and elegant. The colors were inspired by the season, especially the navy blue for the grapes and figs, with a little bordeaux and peach touch in the flowers. We added gold elements for the Chateau atmosphere: all the gold vases and chandeliers were furnishings from the castle, and we tied in the little name tags with gold lettering, the fern on the plate, and the cutlery. As seen in Flutter Magazine, and on the cover of Gentry.
