Whilst we are a still a long way from finishing touches and putting the personal into our French village house, I am already mentally editing and allocating our stuff room by room for when the fun bit starts.
Whilst “finishing” or “dressing” a room is a no-no to me (unless it’s for a photo shoot) and I firmly believe that rooms should evolve over time to suit the folk who live there, I do think that the little details speak as strongly as the grand piano or the priceless painting or the designer sofa in creating a mood.
Be assured that we have none of the above, this is still the bargain basement blog, but you get my drift.
