|The old farmhouse|
She being a pharmacist and him a builder, they were city dwellers that had no inclination to move again. The trip away changed their paths forever. They fell in love with the simplicity of farm life and healthy living. They bought a run down old farmhouse with tower and barn and started to live their dream.
Built in the early 18 century the house is bursting with character and typical French features. The stone walls and floors, beautiful fireplaces are all original and restored features. Modern additions have been kept to a minimal and come in the form of products such as the bathroom fittings and kitchen etc.
|The orginal fireplace and beams create the focal points for this gorgous sitting room.|
Textures and colours mix easily and the tone of the entire house is calm and relaxed. Beautiful French finds from markets sit along side family heirlooms and the style is totally original.
|The exposed beams and pale grey wooden floors provide a perfect base from which to work from.|
|Perfect entertainment for rainy afternoons!|
|A touch of blue to add a bit of character and colour..|
|An old chest provides a sweet table for a reading corner|
|Sererne and easy to maintain!|
|The modern bath fits perfectly with the original stone inset shelf, just lovely!|
|One of the many bedrooms, simple farmhouse style. Old suitcases provide clever storage and add to the shabby feel.|
|The girls bedroom is feminine and stylish with old Victorian bedframes and an antique rocking horse.|
|The colour palette in the kitchen remains neutral even with the addition of modern elements.|
|The kitchen has a modern feel as the chairs and units are new but it does not interupt the farmhouse feel as items are chosen wisely to inject some interest and colours are kept in form with the surrounds.|
|This modern fireplace does not look out of place and provides the burst of heat that is needed to warm a massive stone building such as this.|
|An old chalkboard provides the perfect solution for the coat rack.|
|Simple and stylish|
