Mars: Warm and bathed in shades of plum and burgundy, Mars doesn’t premeditate anything. This place is for you to sleep or enact your passions. It is a choice that the god of springtime and youth saves for those who are bold enough. He is thought to be a warrior whereas he is lively and quicksilver. He is a child who pretends to be serious. The chandelier tubes, like the quiver of the god of war, send a message to the seats designed by Hermès which, stand next to the suitcases by Maarten de Ceulaer. On the headboard, a number of plates including “Mappemonde géographique de la planète Mars” from 1782, “Astronomie” a plate from the Diderot and Alembert encyclopaedia, and a pair of Malby globes from 1867.
Mercure: Mercury (Mercure), begat by the sun and the moon, is elusive. People think of him as small when in fact he is thorough! People think of him as reasonable, when in fact he is intuitive. He provides what we hope for and slips away like quicksilver when faced with obligations. The bedroom is designed to be gazed at. A lighthouse opens onto the banks of the pond of the Château. A circle traces an arc against the sky, above the green foliage of the forest. Mercure is suitable for persons with reduced mobility. The headboard features a number of engravings showing the movement of Mars and Mercury in relation to the Earth, a plate by Andriveau-Goujon illustrating the planetary system, a 16th-century planisphere, and a pair of wooden wings, perhaps used by Mercury himself when flying from one planet to the next.
Saturne: A sense of silence and retreat presides here. Serene and mature, navigating the border between the visible and the invisible, Saturne invites you to reflect. With its glass ceiling in the tower, its fireplace, and purple hues, Saturne cultivates a feeling of romantic refinement. Here, the hourglass of time halts its course, to the delight of guests. Hans Agnejakobsson’s lamp and wall fixtures seem to scatter stars across the bedroom. Engravings illustrating the earth and the sky from the 16th, 18th, and 19th centuries hang on the wall, framing an 1897 decorative panel by Verneuil Grasset de 1897 depicting dragonflies.
