Episode 112- Argeles apartment, part 2

eclectic style argeles apartmentThere is still stuff to do at the Argeles apartment, but just minor things like boxing in a run of pipework and losing the textured wall covering in the bedroom. Oh, and the shower room tiles, though in good condition reference the decade that taste forgot,the 1980’s!

This is a completely different place, space and aspect to the French village house and we have treated it accordingly. Simple, easy to clean (some guests do the weirdest stuff) with a restricted palette and lots of white to open it up (Like I said, very different to village house style)DSC00960 sejour argeles apartment (2)

Lots of linen, some Moroccan textiles, understated brown/black metal framed furniture, mid-century modern beech beds, a touch of glass and rattan.

This is how it was-Below left- this is how it is-Below right

What? we didn’t keep the shrunken curtains or the bulky MDF furniture?
