Gustavian Style in Spain

Good Tuesday morning, my friends! So lovely to see you here again! On to our tour.
In the Empordà region of Catalonia, in Spain, just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean sea and with the Pyrenees as a backdrop, stands this 19th century farmhouse. It was almost in ruins, but Peter Wilson saw its potential and took on the task of restoring it using original materials of construction. He chose a Gustavian style decoration with pops of colour in every room.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! Let me know!

Château in Provence

Nice to see you here my friends! And it is off to Provence that we go today. This château is located in Grignan, in the Rhone-Alps region in southeastern France.


Noticed that the headboard is a door on its side?

Have a lovely day, my friends!

White and Green in Spain

Good morning dear friends! I woke up to a flooded bathroom this morning. It wasn't so bad because it actually was the hot water pipe under the sink so I paddled in warm water (nice! no, really it was a nice feeling!) while mopping it up. For a reason I cannot imagine there is no drainage system in the bathroom floor so it drippity dropped all night and the water flooded half of my son's room too. Ah well, never a dull moment as my grandpa used to remind me.

Let's fly away to Spain today, yes? Colours everywhere, but mostly greens in this house decorated by interior designer Rocio Moreno.
