Yesterday, “Best Interior Designers” wrote a little profile about interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch and i just find out that his own château was featured in Elle Decor. I also found a little article at “Interior Design Magazines” blog that presents some highlights of Pierre Yovanovitch‘s 17th century château.

Elle Decor, is an amazing interior design magazine, that sometimes gives us the opportunity to visit a great house or mansion of some of the most popular celebrities in the world. This time Elle Decor revealed exclusive details of the château of rising interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch. “Interior Design Magazines” will share with you some images and details of Pierre Yovanovitch’s 17th century château. It’s time for you to take a look and collect some ideas! Pierre Yovanovitch didn’t have the particular dream of owning a century house, much less of having his own 17th century château, however, he fell in love with it when he saw it listed for sale in a magazine."Elle Decor: Interior Designer Pierre Yovanovitch’s 17th century château"  Pierre Yovanovitch's 17th century château 04 yovanovitch decor EDC 12 13 xl 14877491“In the living room of Paris designer Pierre Yovanovitch‘s 17th-century château in Provence, the custom-made sofas are covered in a Rogers & Goffigon linen, the circa-1940s armchairs are by Otto Schultz, the cocktail table is a 1949 design by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, and the stucco mantel, in the traditional style, is by Joël Puisais; the watercolor, Jigsaw 1.5, is by Francesco Clemente, the 1931 oak sofa is by Axel Einar Hjorth, and the custom-made rug is from Holland & Sherry.”

As you might expect, the château was decorated by the rising interior design star. His designs are known for having rich textures and a 20th century American and Scandinavian style. To decorate in own home, he maintained some touches of the original decoration. Pierre Yovanovitchh kept the walls very clean, without too many accessories, because that’s the way the chateau was decorated in the 17th century."Elle Decor: Interior Designer Pierre Yovanovitch’s 17th century château"  Pierre Yovanovitch's 17th century château 08 yovanovitch decor EDC 12 13 xl 50804729The amazing château is located near the village of Aups in the southern foothills of the Alps. Buying a 17th century château is always a risk. If the building’s structure is in poor condition you’ll face a big and expensive renovation. And Pierre Yovanovitch had that bad luck. The château had no foundation apart from under one of the four towers."Elle Decor: Interior Designer Pierre Yovanovitch’s 17th century château"  Pierre Yovanovitch's 17th century château 10 yovanovitch decor EDC 12 13 xl 12523826The restoration of the château took three years, but, in the end, interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch renovated a fantastic 17th century property. He still thinks that has 20 or more years of work to take the château into its old glory. But we can see that the interior designer is in a good way to accomplish that.
