On the fourth floor of the Chateau, a room patiently awaits some TLC. The former servants’ quarters look out over Dick & Angel Strawbridge’s walled garden, the “Potagerie”.
The room waited nearly four years to be given the attention it deserved and, in that time, the Potagerie had also begun its transformation – and the view got better and better and better. Dick duly named the room “The Potagerie Suite”, and from that moment it too started to come to life…
The kitchen garden is Dick’s passion, though a little outside his wife’s comfort zone. That said, Angel managed to celebrate and combine her love for Art Deco shapes with items from the garden so adored by her husband. The appearance of carrots, courgettes, artichokes, sweat pea and of course bees really scream, “Garden!” Angel even took inspiration from the flowers on the century-old wallpaper that was originally in the room.
For Angel, design needs to tell a story. This one is about love.
