La Villa Verte

I first spotted images of Bruno de Caumont‘s Ho Chi Minh City home a few months ago in the French Elle Deco. It was love at first site but unfortunately I could not find images back then to illustrate a blog post. I was thrilled when I discovered that La Villa Verte had been featured in the first edition of Design Anthology and that the house tour was even available on their site. This 1950’s villa in the heart of the city has remained empty for thirty five years before being carefully renovated and furnished by the French interior designer “in the idea that I made myself about the style of the 50s in Saigon”. The house is brimming with color, pretty much one for each room, and sparsely furnished mostly with pieces from de Caumont’s own lacquered furniture line manufactured in Vietnam with centuries old techniques.

The space is uncluttered and relaxing yet with plenty of personality.

I usually love the interiors that I showcase on the blog, but the Villa Verte is certainly one of the nicest I have seen in a long time. I would  move in in a heartbeat which, you can also do if you are traveling to Ho Chi Minh City. La Villa Verte is open to tourists through Airbnb here and here.

You can view more pictures on Design Anthology and follow Bruno de Caumont’s stunning work on Facebook.

  • Beautiful! I can’t get over those little side tables in the blue and green rooms. They wouldn’t match our house at all, but I still feel like I need them. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • What an amazing house! I especially love the green on the terrace.ReplyCancel

  • Quite spectacular! Interesting what they did with the two tones in the blue and that green room is incredible. I’m surprised it’s a real home? Looks more like a style exercise. Mel xReplyCancel
