That vacation feel in the city The tones offered by the plants and the decoration The view from the roof terrace


In the heart of an old district of Marseille, a fisherman’s house with a bleached façade has been given a new lease on life after a thorough renovation.


To bring freshness, to remain in the Mediterranean theme of the house, and to preserve itself from the opposite.

Course of action

Provide residents and visitors with a unique experience around local plants and color.


The patio, mainly mineral, highlights the beginnings of color, by a blue planter with a lush look, in agreement with other elements: swing, shutters, interior colors. Through the interior staircase, the living room reveals a second terrace, a real living space. To limit the vis-à-vis, the pergola has been woven with ropes, to become the support of two bougainvilleas. The color is brought by the choice of the decoration – cushions, plaids, furniture. The linear white pots placed on the wall, host climbing and falling plants, mitigating the linearity of the latter. Ravel’s terracotta pots serve the space and the plants, bringing softness to the whole. By going back up the central staircase of the house, a last layer is revealed to us: the roof terrace with the appearance of a Greek landscape, with this shade of blue on the ground which, on certain days, harmonizes with the sky. The white bench, punctuated with graphic and dry plants, the summer kitchen with white canisses, the woven suspensions and the seaside furniture from Honoré, offer a total change of scenery as soon as the sun comes out.

A real city oasis, bathed in a resolutely Mediterranean air!



A real village in the city, it has kept this spirit around its shopping streets.
