Chateau de Gudanes – Part 2

Gates of Chateau GudanesFrench Chateau
Chateau de Gudanes

If you saw Part 1 of Chateau de Gudanes,

then you know what to expect from these

images of the palace under renovation

in its decaying, yet lovely

undone state (its owners call it Sleeping Beauty).

Photographer Sonia Szostak is behind the images

of this lookbook for Brahman’s

(a furniture and accessories brand), and while

the models are lovely, I can’t keep my eyes off

the peely paint, plaster, and wallpaper.

I can’t stop admiring the light, the

architecture, the patina, and the quietness

of the timeworn neutral tones inside

the Chateau.

Enjoy and be inspired by the beauty

within these whispery walls, and

I’ll meet you at the finish line.

    It's almost too much beauty to take in! The chateau is exquisite and then the models and their dresses just put me over the top! I want to paint them!!

    I look forward to watching the transformation of this exquisite chateau! It will take a lot of restraint to be able to stop renovating beyond where they should. How will they know where to draw the line I wonder?

      me too! it feels like such a privilege to watch it unfold. i think the owners possess the right amount of restraint. it does feel like a matter of taste, and they are swimming in it! xox
