Converted farm house, Saint-Georges-les-Landes, France

This converted Farm house, near Limoges, which we were lucky enough to stumble upon for a few nights, a few summers ago, was a real find. The style was so quirky, with lots of mid century modernism mixed with deer horns and rustic finds. From the outside it seems like any sweet cottage.

But, when you enter you are hit with these wonderful ceilings. A great mix of art was everywhere and the furniture was a mix of boxy modernism with elegantly upholstered one-offs.

I love the fact that they knocked through to make double-height ceilings.

The bold line-up of these Antler horns, works really well.

The bedroom upstairs was given this glass window meaning that you can see the children playing from when you are downstairs. The effect is rather scary as they look suspended in the air! These fun long blue curtains are from Marimekko.

Upstairs is minimal and has a cosy country feel. I love the dotting of green and soft dusty browns and whites, with the animal-skin rug adding a kind of grandeur.

This Hydrangea bush sit so well with the subtle colour of the stone, and even the outdoor faded brown furniture is elegantly understated.

This mini gallery of mirrors creates space in the corridor and reflects all the green and light from the enormous garden.

Despite the rust and a bit of rain these chairs will fade with only more grace!
