New Kitchen in French summer home.


My aunt and uncle are the lucky owners of a little bit of paradise in the French countryside. It’s a semi-detached house that is part of a small estate. Their property once was part of the stables with possibly living space for staff or farmers. When they bought it, the furniture of the previous owner, and old lady, was still partially there. Many pieces of these left behinds were wonderful and now look fantastic between m aunt and uncle’s antiques and vintage pieces. 

My uncle built the new mantle of the fireplace himself out of large sand stone bricks. It’s an elegant work of art and fits the house like it is the original fireplace. The next time I am there I will take pictures of it and post it on here too. 

The latest project was the kitchen. It looked cosy enough as it was but just needed a bit of attention. Instead of fixing the odd screw or door here and there they decided to rip the old kitchen out, and replace it with a new one. Obviosuly keeping with the decor and mood of the house. 

Below a collage of the before, in between and after shots. It looks absolutely great!
