This is the home where Brigitte and Thierry Benkemoun go to when they want to escape from their city lives in Paris. Brigitte’s father bought the rustic 17th-century farmhouse around 40 years ago. Brigitte and Thierry inherited half of the property 15 years ago. On weekends and holidays they traveled to their home in the Provence with their now adult children. Two years ago, when they inherited the other half of the house, they decided to renovate the house and make it their own. They installed a polished concrete aggregate floor downstairs, changed the design of the simple concrete stairs leading to the second floor, and added black steel-framed doors that open from the living room to the terrace. In the kitchen IKEA cabinets were fitted with iron fronts. The result is home with a rustic charm but with all comforts of modern living.
