As antiquarian and decorator Serge Castella points out:” It had been used during the summers, but nothing more. When I first walked in it was like going back to 1974; it had gotelé, soffits and ceilings with dark wooden door panels. It was completely outdated but still the interior was cheerful and had strength. “

He maintained  the same style in  both floors of the chalet. He installed the same parquet in public areas and bedrooms, painted the walls and ceiling white, designed the kitchen furniture with antique wood and  kept some tiles and the marbles in the master bathroom.
