The renovating of a 17th century domain in Provence

The restoration of the Domaine de l’Arc properties started in 2006 with La Bastide de l’Arc, a 478 sqm provençal 17th century traditional farmhouse. Nathalie Vingot Mei got full support from the owners, granting her carte blanche on every aspect of the project from choice of materials to the installation and implementation of her ideas, both indoors and outdoors.



2007 saw the the designing and refurbishing of Mas de l’Arc. As with the bastide, Nathalie was entrusted with the full project of decorating this 5 bedroom traditional mas set amidst the vineyards of the Arc valley. This refurbishing allowed the interior decorator  to experience with many fabrics and materials, using the property’s furniture, curtains, accessories and a host of details made to create effective lighting effects throughout the estate.



This restoration process was extended to the nearby wine domain and wedding reception facilities adjoining the Domaine de l’Arc up until the end of 2009, thus ensuring the same chic country style colours and designs were maintained throughout the estate and its dependencies.
