The renovation project is advancing quickly and everyone’s delighted.
Part 3 of our ‘House Renovation’ series…
Ginette has already thought through the interior of the new house and has decided that the predominant colours will be red, white and black/grey.
The bathrooms will be tiled in these colors and there will also be some trompe l’oeil wallpaper used to give a 3D effect.
Ginette has already sourced lots of objects on Le Bon Coin – some 70’s wall lights and pendant lights for instance.
In the living room, the plan is to create a ‘lofty’ feel so there’ll be a wall of old bricks on one long wall and the floor will be covered in a grey, marbled linoleum.
Ginette has also sourced some old 19 century gates taken from a chateau (Le Bon Coin again) and she’ll use these to create a balcony on the first floor, at the front of the house.
The local authority want the front house to mimic traditional houses in the area, but the family will make the rear of the house look more modern – with a zinc roof, a large open living space and aluminum bay windows.
Ginette and her husband love to travel and they brought a lot of leather from their travels in Argentina. Ginette will re-cover 3 bridge chairs with the leather. The chairs are destined for the future office which will be enclosed by large iron artists windows.
