a modern home on ile de ré, france


This beautiful home is located on Ile de Ré, an island off the west coast of France. It belongs to painter Catherine Le-Van and her husband live. Both are passionate about design and various iconic design pieces can be found throughout their house.


While the decor is modern, the house itself is traditional. It was designed by Pascal Poulain, an architect from La Flotte-en-Ré. The large glass doors and windows offer breathtaking views of the rugged coastline and the ocean.


Inside the home, Catherine and her husband wanted to bring a touch of modernity. Contemporary furniture is mixed with antiques brought back from travels or found on antique flea markets. For example, in the living room (top image) a lamp from Isamu Noguchi stands on an old Vietnamese table.
