Pierre Yovanovitch didn’t have the particular dream of owning a century house, much less of having his own 17th century château, however, he fell in love with it when he saw it listed for sale in a magazine.

“In the living room of Paris designer Pierre Yovanovitch‘s 17th-century château in Provence, the custom-made sofas are covered in a Rogers & Goffigon linen, the circa-1940s armchairs are by Otto Schultz, the cocktail table is a 1949 design by T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, and the stucco mantel, in the traditional style, is by Joël Puisais; the watercolor, Jigsaw 1.5, is by Francesco Clemente, the 1931 oak sofa is by Axel Einar Hjorth, and the custom-made rug is from Holland & Sherry.”

As you might expect, the château was decorated by the rising interior design star. His designs are known for having rich textures and a 20th century American and Scandinavian style.
To decorate in own home, he maintained some touches of the original decoration. Pierre Yovanovitchh kept the walls very clean, without too many accessories, because that’s the way the chateau was decorated in the 17th century.

The amazing château is located near the village of Aups in the southern foothills of the Alps. Buying a 17th century château is always a risk. If the building’s structure is in poor condition you’ll face a big and expensive renovation. And Pierre Yovanovitch had that bad luck. The château had no foundation apart from under one of the four towers.
