Relaxing Provence Residence














Josephine Ryan's house in Provence

"I am compelled by the thrill of the find, 
discovering one off pieces 
and combining the unexpected, 
unifying the past with the present." (JB)

"Josephine Ryan is a wonderful antiques dealer with a very distinctive taste and also the 
author of three great interiors books. She spent three years looking for the house of her 
dreams, and when she visited this house in Provence, halfway between Nimes and Montpelliers, 
it was love at first sight. The house had been abandoned for decades but she loved everything 
about it from the first moment she saw it. 

When she found the name of her mother's maiden name carved in a stone of the house,
she understood that it was her destiny. But turning the abandoned house in a nice 
and pretty home required a lot of work and creativity. 
The decoration is a perfect example of Josephine's signature which she defines as 
a mix of modern, rusty and eccentric. 
She feels that there is a very strong emotional bond that links her to the place. 
She realizes that the peculiar characteristic of the house makes it a life commitment, 
a neverending work in progress because there is always some work to be done."

In the middle of the beginning holiday season,
it's good to dream...
