What's happening in my French house?

It's been a while I updated my poor neglected blog. I was came back from France about 2 and half months ago. I am going back in middle of March to check on the renovation.  I am happy to go back to my house in France but 23 hours flights from Melbourne to Paris is a bit too much these day, not to mention about 3 hours driving from Paris to my house.

Here are some photos from my last visit.

 Sun is setting and lights on.

I also managed to buy most of the bedroom furniture. 

I was very luck to find this original Louis bedroom set, including matching Armoire , two bed side table (according to the antique shop owner, this kind of bed only come with one side table)

Another Louis Bedroom set. 

wondering about in the temporary living room.

I can't wait to go back but there will be so much to do.  so much painting to do, not to mention wall paper has to come off first. 4 bath and shower room to be renovated, Septic tank need to be replaced.  Whole house being rewired at the moment, and the kitchen is totally gut it out for face lift.

Hi dear Julie
So sorry I'm late in popping by to say happy 2014. Almost Chinese New Year and seems year of the Horse will be good to you.

How exciting not just to live in both hemispheres (my dream) but to have the fun of creating something fresh and new for your family. Only a little but jealous hehe

Good luck with it all and please do show us all the details ciao ciao xxx Julie

Bonjour Julie,

Pleased to hear that you have got the furniture sorted for the bedrooms.

I bet that the interior of the house is already finished, in your head that is.

Cannot wait to read the prtogress updates.

The interior is really gorgeous and I like it to the extreme! I wish you could post more on the topic of design!
