The château, listed as a Historical Monument, remains unchanged. However, inside, the architect Philippe de Lanouvelle, in charge of the renovation of the château and in agreement with the new management, made the decision to “rejuvenate” the whole interior whilst both enhancing the spirit of the time when the Château was built (1715) and improving comfort.
“Firstly, we took our inspiration from period colours and drawings that can be found in some re-editions of Frey or Canovas fabrics. Therefore, in the rooms, instead of having the same paint on all four walls, we have chosen to place Jouy wall covering fabrics on the wall where the headboard is and on one other wall, which gives a tapestry effect. The rest is extremely simple in order to avoid changing the original style of the château” explains Philippe de Lanouvelle.
The Château d’Audrieu is furnished with classical background furniture inspired by the 17th and 18th centuries, with reference to its history and tradition. This furniture is completed with traditional seats from the Jean-Pierre Besse manufacture in the Vosges region, thus perpetuating the know-how of French cabinet-making.
