French Chateaux Style is characterized by elaborate ornamentation, asymmetrical values, pastel color palette and curved or serpentine lines. Interiors are light, airy and whimsical. They feature exuberant decoration, which an abundance of curves, counter-curves, undulations and elements modeled in nature. Grand staircases become centerpieces and offer different points of view of the decoration.
Most of the original Chateaux buildings were country palaces and private homes of French nobility. They signified the light-heartedness of the elegant upper-class life.
In today’s modern take on this 17th century style, this Chateaux is all about glamour and indulgence, yet not far from comfort and playfulness.
