Interior Designer Joséphine Ryan

Joséphine Ryan lives between London and the sunny country of Uzès, in France. She has restored an abandoned village house in which she displays her collection of antiques with inspired simplicity.

Salle à manger de Joséphine Ryan
Opening onto a corner of the garden, the dining room's main features are original such as the reddish clay flooring, wooden beams, and stone fireplace. Distressed Swedish wooden chairs surround the farm style table which was custom made.
