Lé Chat Room
Notes from Suzanne:
When I designed the STUDIO, the space under the eaves became a wonderful bright
room later to be named the Lé Chat room. Old Spring Farm has been raising Manx
cats since 1965 and more recently “Banx”, the result of crossing a Bengal male
on a Manx female. “Lé Chat”, French for the cat, seemed a logical theme for the
newly created upper room of the studio.
THE Lé CHAT ROOM is sophisticated enough to appeal to non-cat lovers as well
with its traditional Provencal color scheme of burgundy, gold and teal inspired
by a French poster hung near the cast iron enameled gas-log stove. The
patterned duvet and shams match the area rugs on the tiled floors. A
bay-windowed nook surrounds a pillowed daybed perfect for curling up on with a
book or for the comfort of a third person for an additional fee.
A private balcony, with deck expansion planned, provides bonus space overlooking
a pasture which is home to one of the farm’s Appaloosa horses. Over 60
varieties of songbirds have been observed on the farm along with deer and wild
turkey which are attracted to the grain left by the horses.
