Provence Mountainside Villa

by Nathan Kingsbury Design

Shortlisted: Bespoke Cabinetry/Installation Award

The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024

Nathan Kingsbury Design undertook the transformation of a mountainside property in Provence, seamlessly blending traditional Provencal stonework with an enhanced, eclectic interior. The goal was to create a warm and inviting home that reflected the clients’ personalities and distinctive style while taking full advantage of the stunning natural surroundings. Nathan Kingsbury Design’s task was to infuse the interior with original ideas and perfect craftsmanship, ensuring every detail harmonised with the picturesque landscape and the artisanal charm of the region.

The clients’ brief included designing a salon with bi-folding doors for flexible living and a drinks bar integrating patinated brass, hand-antiqued mirrors, and clear glass shelves, creating an opulent yet warm statement piece. For the study, Nathan Kingsbury Design crafted full-scale, French-style bookcases in painted oak, incorporating traditional methods to highlight the timber’s natural beauty.

The bedroom suite embraced a romantic art deco style, incorporating cut glass bedside tables and custom hardware. The cabinetry featured verre églomisé mirrors, adding depth and light.

Nathan Kingsbury Design’s approach blended luxury with subtle elegance, inspired by the clients’ curated art and furniture, ensuring each room had its own voice while collectively connecting to the Provencal house and its landscape. The salon’s mirrored glass and high gloss finish make the glass objects sparkle and bounce light and exterior views around the room.

This project, their first overseas, was a unique and exciting venture for Nathan Kingsbury Design. They enjoyed collaborative meetings in London and a three-month installation in Provence, culminating in one of their favorite projects. The designs, informed by the surroundings and clients’ tastes, integrated seamlessly into the wider environment.
