Last night and the night before and the night before that I fell asleep thinking about the apartment in Cassis. Imagining the walls gutted, the space empty, the placement of the kitchen and the stairs, calculating what is needed and what is not.
What is needed in that small long narrow space?
For the first time in my life I might take a very practical step towards a modern design. Just writing it makes me shiver. Modern, light and open, few objects, practical leaning towards sparse. Sometimes I wonder what is happening. Then I reminded myself about the size and the need to keep it open and light because it is dark and tight. Thinking about a modern design is one thing, admiring it another, but actually living in it, could I?
As the kitchen is narrow, there will be one long counter... 60 cm x 330 cm, no upper cabinets and a very small table at one end and a stairwell at the other end.
I kinda have a crush on this tub.
I kinda like the idea of it in the bedroom.
Can a Brocante Fanatic go modern?
Brocante Bug where the hell are you?
When French Husband saw this bathroom sink, he said, "You like the basket, not the sink, right?"
"The basket? No. Actually I thought the sink was pretty cool, but not very practical."
I think I might have shocked him with the word "practical" as he looked at me strangely, and whispered, "Are you okay?"
At dinner I opened my Pinterest and showed French Husband some of the images I have been collecting, "Like this one, you see, it is just about the colors, though I really like the oversized art piece, you know the apartment is small but the walls are large, so I was thinking..." as I talking I could see he wasn't listening, or more so not understanding, or actually French Husband was wondering silently out loud, "She has gone off the deep end."
And there I am swimming in Cassis wondering can I really go modern?
I have my doubts.
But something is stirring that I cannot deny.
Which way do you lean:
Modern or Classic
Practical or Arty
Do you dot your "I" and cross your "T" or Scribble?
Do you dream out loud?
