Olivier and Carole didn’t wait when they arrived across this millstone home from the starting of the century, a stone’s toss from Parc Montsouris. It was just ideal for a substantial blended family members. Delightfully previous-fashioned with its small rooms and flowered papers, it even now required a complete overhaul. This allowed it to be a little restructured to make it a spot that is entirely tailored to the new inhabitants.
Just about every flooring is fantastically organised. The floor floor is the assembly place for the entire household: a gorgeous entrance corridor with its 1900 cement tiles and an invigorating red colour, a huge dwelling room with two deep velvet sofas and a looking through corner close to the library and the fire a massive kitchen area with a farm table and massive shelves for exhibiting the dishes, not forgetting the scullery which overlooks the inner courtyard. The 1st ground is the children’s floor: two bedrooms for the women with a roomy rest room to share, a 3rd bed room with its toilet for Igor. The top ground under the roof is mostly the parents’, with a big place that lets for the accumulation of textbooks&#8230
