Antique paisleys covering 19th-century armchairs set a warm ambiance in the upstairs living room. The large painting is of the Red Fort in Delhi, found in a café in Arles. Many of the 19th-century pieces, bought in the area, blend with the architecture.
On the kitchen wall at right is a 19th-century salon painting of Hecate and her dogs.
A large stone mantel in the master bedroom is original to the house. The 17th-century country pine bench-table rests between a pair of 19th-century armchairs.
It's so funny to take a look back at something that was the height of French country decorating back in the 1980's. All that pine furniture! I have a few pieces myself! And wouldn't the chandelier over the dining table be better replaced with one of the oversize lanterns we all love.
I wonder if this house is still in the family, and if it's been updated.
Joni I think this could be your next post!
