An American entrepreneur, Chris Burch purchased a 10,000 square-feet property in a small village in France named Senlis, and the property was a 1608 Hôtel Particulier. With the help of his friends Marco Scarani and Jamie Creel, Burch found the place he would turn into a cozy home for his family. The redesign of the home will be taken upon by French architect and decorator, Michel Pinet and English landscape designer, Tania Compton. Scarani would also assist in getting Burch’s vision of his new home correct. Burch felt house needed renovations, but he felt the house would be wonderful . Pinet is well-known for his restoration of the Château de Versailles. Before Pinet was able to start decorating the house, Scarani was able to acquire Joseph Dufour’s 1805 scenic panoramic, and it showed the voyages of Captain Cook. The panoramic inspired Pinet to redesign columns and moldings of the dining room.
Pinet employed four hand-carved doors from the 1600s in the redesign of Burch’s home. Pinet what creates how from ancient stones, and he would produce cushioning for chairs from the 1700s called Braquenié. Pinet was able to redesign two kitchens and nine bathrooms that were nearly 300 years old. Outside the home, there was 17th century walls that surrounded the property and its’ garden. Compton designed the garden, an apple orchard, and added a vegetable patch.
