I capture the castle

This home. First photographed for my book A Beautiful Mess and thereafter, featured in The Telegraph Magazine, UK - it is the country living dream of antiques dealer Steiner Berg-Olsen. Describing his home as 'French with a dash of Scandi', for the French side, check out the fairytale castle exterior, the neo-classical details and the supersized fireplaces indoors. As for the Scandi, take a tour upstairs to the attic, where the vast 128-square metre space is painted head-to-toe in white and kitted out with Carlo Colombo and Alvar Aalto design. Living between the old and new, Steiner has transformed this derelict chateau in the Loire into an elegant, modern home.
