At last Cassis is in the final stages of completion. It is being painted as I type and then the light fixtures and plugs will go in. We had the entire kitchen painted in Stone White, the same color we used in Paris. The grey hints soften the coldness of the glaring white. I prefer it. We also had painted the bathroom wall and the second bedroom's French doors a blue black too, I love it!
When a project kicks off it seems to happen quickly, when walls or rooms are being demolitioned is easy to see progress: Once a room now rubble. But as the project goes on and aims for the finish line it is harder to see the progress as the work is in the smaller details. The house in Cassis is shaping up beautifully, and I will feel bored without it! How I enjoyed the process. Rene is a genius craftsman. HE conquered every idea I put before him.
As soon as it is completed the furniture will go it.
I can hardly stand it, I want to get to it as my home in St Zac. feels like a warehouse and the creative force of collecting all that stuff is aching to get out.
There is a glass console for the bedroom upstairs, two nightstands, a closet, some paintings, a table and a chunky fold-out canape (sofa in French) for downstairs.
Rene's wife, Laiticia restored the antique chandelier.
