Décor and style
Generally, the style of the renovation of L'Atelier is traditional tradifage pointed Charentaise stone walls, selected areas of white wall to reflect light, exposed structural wood including massive beams in the salle de commune and a wooden vaulted ceiling. The floors are of ceramic floor tiles. Throughout the house the pictures now decorating the walls are by internationally renowned photo-journalist Anthony Howarth. We will be updating these photographs, soon, to reflect this and other new additions to the decorations and furniture.
