  • Don’t have a spare £16 million to snap up Johnny Depp’s French estate? No problem

    Hollywood and Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp is selling his 37-acre French estate near St Tropez for a cool £16 million.

    The property in Le Plan-de-La-Tour, which could more accurately be described as a small village, has a dozen stone buildings dating back to 1812 (all restored and decorated according to the actor’s boho taste) and comes complete with a restaurant and professional kitchen.

    However, if you haven’t got a spare couple of million to snap up this A-list property, here’s how to channel French-style summers in your home every day.

    Let’s go outside

    Create an inviting space to entertain by nestling outdoor furniture under a luscious green tree. Here the marble-topped table and traditional bentwood chairs create a timeless look, while a glass vase filled with red and yellow roses will add to the Provence-style look.

    Play with colour

    Step away from greys and neutrals and create a dreamy, summer vibe by painting French-style paneling in pastel hues.

    Bonne nuit

    The French-style upholstered bed takes centre stage and adds a country feel to this serene space. The mirrored bedside table and copper lamp gives a touch of sparkle, while cushions and throws add colour and texture to the room.

    It’s all in the detail

    Metal chairs and benches come over all nonchalant chic when scattered with cushions in warm hues of orange and lavender.

    The art of organised clutter

    Master displaying pots and pans in your kitchen by hanging copper saucepans and utensils stacked on top of each other in front of a colourful tiled splash back.
