But I love the name: Rue du Chateau, Street of the Chateau.
The bathroom sink: Found the top part, a marble holy water font at a brocante in April. The base is a garden stand, new, made out of some modern fiber whatever. The lights I found at a second hand store in Paris. French Husband rewired them.
The arm to the man.
art in motion.
Large gilded oval frame with a charcoal drawing of a young girl.
It is sitting on the kitchen counter, a safe place. I bought it at an antique shop in Paris a few weeks ago. That is why it is hanging out instead of in a safe place.
The kitchen has a small counter with a stove top and large sink (no dishwasher).
Alongside of it there is an island.

Working in the bedroom on a makeshift table.
I begged to keep the old stone steps.
The patine ... years of glue, use, dirt, soiled.. not pretty, but I find them appealing, earthy, real. I am going to wax them. Like I said I pleaded to keep them.
Bathroom tiles meet the living room floor.
A sneak peek.
We have a hundred details to deal with.
Rue du Chateau, the workers house turned into a little dream.
