Restored House in France

Another post today for you my friends! Located in the Picardy countryside between Reims and Paris this house was built in 1650 and originally the house attached to a vineyard. A young couple decided to restore it but kept the antique feel in every room. This is how it turned out.

The brick walls were left exposed. Sulptured boxwood, antique lanterns and watering cans decorate the doorsteps.

Most of the items used in the decoration are antique as these glass jars and bells.

The living room floors are new with stone slabs and square black marble. Louis XV armchair.

The living room viewed from another angle. The chaise lounge is covered in toile de Jouy.

The dining room table is set with faience plates.

A collection of candlesticks displayed above the marble fireplace. The chest is Louis XVI

Vintage scales on the cooking range.

Copper pots, vintage glass jars and wire egg baskets all add to the antique atmosphere.

A wreath made with corks hangs on the kitchen door.

Original staircase.

The same toile de jouy appears in the master bedroom.

Porcelain sink and clawfoot bathtub.

Pale blues for this small boy's bedroom.

I'd love to know what you think about this style! Happy Tuesday to you my dears!
