On the fourth floor of the Chateau, a room patiently awaits some TLC. The former servants’ quarters have a glorious view of Dick & Angel Strawbridge’s walled garden.
The room waited nearly four years to be given the attention it truley deserved and in that time the walled garden, the ‘Potagerie’, had also begun a major transformation – and the view got even better. Dick named the room ‘The Potagerie Suite’, and from that moment it too started to come to life perfectly…
The kitchen garden is Dick’s passion, though a little outside his wife’s comfort zone. That said, Angel has managed to celebrate and combine her love for Art Deco design and 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 and this one is all about love, love, love.
