Welcome to The Little White House, an old stone fisherman's cottage located in Brittany.
It has seen better days, but I'm commited to reveal its inner charm one project at a time.
Come inside that 1940's veranda. All the old houses around here had a porch like that one at the time. The Little White House still has it in all its glory. I have plans for that porch, but clearly, this is not a priority as you'll understand once you've stepped in. And please wipe your feet, as the floor is the main improvment I've done so far!
Here you are in the living-room where is also my home office.
The living-room as it is today, still an unpainted work in progress... But a little improved...
To the left when you came in are the dining-room (it used to be a bedroom, obviously)
and the kitchen.
The kitchen is very much my next project... but it will take time and several phases...
The kitchen newly painted in a light seaglass shade - April 2014
The kitchen cabinets are finally there! Progress December 2014.
Now, will you follow me upstairs?
There is a small landing with four doors to:
- the spare bedroom;
- the bathroom;
- my bedroom;
- the loo: it might seem weird that it is the only completed project... But as I had never held a paint brush nor glued any wallpaper before buying this house, I thought it was safer to try my hand in a small room... Just in case I really messed it!
Everything is still going through renovation before being redecorated...
