{Cottage Inspiration}

Thank God this week is at the end…

What about to move for the weekend to your holiday home? Faraway from pc, telephone, Tv, noise? I’m thinking to an isolated beach, with some friends , barbecue in the evening, sea and beach all day long, barefoot for the entire weekend to recharge the battery for another week!

This could be the right place. In France, a couple, bought this old fisherman’s home in “Les Portes” one of the most quaint village of the Ile de Rè

They renewed la maison from head to toe using simple materials, neutral colors and mixing different style with à fil rouge… A touch of red everywhere!

It took 18 weeks to give a new face to that old house and the result is stunning!

It could be a lamp, a box or a “cafè” sign. Red is everywhere!

It’s not the typical Cottage with blu everywhere, shells, stripes. It’s something different. An old house that still has that old atmosphere and flavours but with a new face! It could be a family house where to spend every summer and weekends and where always come back . Full of memories, this is a place you can call “Home”…

The old style fridge is perfect for that simple kitchen. Nothing too modern or too new.

Three bedrooms each with a defined style and romantic names “Bois de la Rose”, “Bois de Sable” and “Bois Flottè”

Two old shutters divide the “salle de bain” from the bedroom.
