Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons launches four extraordinary suites
05 May 2010
Working with his good friend,
interior designer Emily Todhunter, Raymond Blanc has added another tier
of excellence to Le Manoir. Each room captures both Raymond’s French
heritage and the global influences that have inspired him.
“Creating a room is as challenging as creating a beautiful dish; it takes the same creativity, love and attention to detail.”
BLANC DE BLANC
With access to a private garden, the eco-friendly Blanc de Blanc is layered in shades of white to create a haven of tranquility combined with refined sophistication.
Blanc plays with the colours of his name: all the textures and shades of white are here, in the fabrics, paint and sandstone. With the ceramics and porcelain, these hues create space, light, calm and intimacy. At night the magic of the lights creates darker shadows of white, all contributing to a blissful, luxurious experience.
Essentially French, l’Orangerie evokes both the faded elegance of a château and the serene beauty of a classic orangerie.
You enter your suite through a private garden and open terrace. Essentially French, l’Orangerie evokes both the faded elegance of a château and the serene beauty of a classic orangerie, with its limed oak and heated stone floor. The floral scent of fragrant citrus trees pervades the spacious rooms, their leafy green creating colour drama, contrasting with shades of tangerine and terracotta.
The most feminine and romantic suite at Le Manoir. The centerpiece is a beautiful ebonized four-poster bed, and the bathroom a spacious pleasure-dome.
Here Raymond taps into female sensuality to recreate a refined French boudoir. A display of fine, handcrafted lace, scarlet and black velvet and crushed silk give the room its seductive power, creating intimacy and romance. The centerpiece is a beautiful ebonized four-poster bed, and the bathroom a spacious pleasure-dome.
Inspired by Raymond’s travels, Jade takes you on a journey away from the familiar into an opulent, exotic South East Asia experience.
You enter the suite under the canopy of an Oriental tree, and are immersed in a sumptuous space full of textures and grassy green colours. Raymond worked closely with Emily and sculptors whose work he cherishes to create a serene atmosphere coupled with sensuous indulgence. “Details are layered upon each other to provide a total experience,” Raymond points out, “the fireplace, an ebonised dining table – and everywhere the mysterious colour of jade.”
