Breathtaking French Château Tour in Provence With Dramatic Eclectic Interiors & Oddities

We’re stepping inside an unforgettable Provençal gem–a restored 19th century Avignon château just steps from the Palais des Papes. This Breathtaking French Château Tour in Provence With Dramatic Eclectic Interiors & Oddities is all about l’art dramatique (ooooh, le drame!), fantasy, and deep sighs for sure. Yet this mansion, Avignon Hôtel Particulier, is a property which may also be directly experienced in person! What?

The Serenity Suite at Avignon Hôtel Particulier is a luxury getaway offered by Haven In, a wonderful firm with which I am personally familiar since we booked a Paris apartment with them. And I didn’t partner with them or get any special perks – madame is motivated entirely by her pleasant experience (and no sponsored post here).

Remember It’s Not a Family Home

LET US BEAR IN MIND: This mansion’s interiors are designed for hotel guests…so we need not criticize a particular accent table for its bougie factor since clearly vacationers will be setting down their drinks and actually USING the furniture.

In Defense of Fantasy Home Tours

Here’s the thing. House tours with design ideas we instantly recognize as applicable to our own feathered nests are certainly practical and lovely indeed. But fantasy tours have always appealed to me as well since these projects are more often executed in a spirit of imagination and eccentricity.

When budget is no object, the design plans and finishes as well as the most intricate decor details are typically bespoke. But consider the flipside. That same spirit of creativity and innovation is also at work with a shoestring budget where so many elements must be handmade or saved from the dumpster out of necessity!!!

More Than Just Pretty Pictures

It’s why I think fantasy tours are more than simply eye candy! While I may never have the chance to restore a French chateau, hire craftspeople to recreate moldings, or employ artisans to hand-apply plaster finishes, I can indeed study the mix. I can collect ideas about architectural elements and glean details from the oh-so-not-builder-grade interiors.

Beyond All the Price Tags

Regardless of budget or resources, there is always a color story to inspire us. There is certainly a mood and spirit captured with such fantasy transformations which transcend the actual expense of the restoration or design.
