Affectionately known as the house of the three efes by the names of their owners -François, Fabienne and their daughter Fanny- their owners discovered it when they searched A home in the countryside. It was not a love at first sight, but they knew how to guess the potential it had. “Narrow, the facade, full of cracks, only had two windows. It was very dark, and we decided to create an 8 meter long viewpoint for the light to enter, ”says Fabienne. Another drawback was that the ground floor had seven rooms. "I did not want partitions, but an open space that included the living room, dining room and kitchen," says the owner.

The transformations planned by the owners required the advice of its architect, Denis Ranjard. The staircase of the house was in the center and hindered the passage. That is why it was replaced by a new one, which was attached to the wall and released an open space where the living room, dining room and kitchen were located. Finally, on the first floor - reserved for bedrooms and bathrooms - a new wooden structure was added that is used as a loft.

The impression of finding ourselves in a holiday home is achieved through color, "a second skin for me and a wonderful antidote against the moodiness," says Fabienne, professional designer and illustrator. The facade was painted in light blue, a tone that enhances the feeling of a holiday home. And inside, the colorful is created through of furniture and accessories that stand out on white painted wooden walls. Combined to the smallest detail, they achieve a house fun and cheerful, just as their owners dreamed.
