Friday takes us to a new house on Ile de Re, an island off the west coast of France, near La Rochelle. Every room opens onto a central courtyard ensuring plenty of natural light. Rustic and simple. Come and see.

Under the canopy, the dining room was
Combination of wooden deck and a separate area made of stone slabs.

Metro Tile to a spacious kitchen
Love the terracota flooring on the ground level. Subway style white tiles, stainless steel, hanging baskets and an oak butcher fridge for the kitchen.

A large bay window for the kitchen

The kitchen also opens onto the terrace. A marble window sill is ideal for keeping herbs.

The glass partition separates the kitchen from the living roomA high ceiling

A pity these pics are so small. Instead of a wall, the kitchen is separated from the living room with a glass partition.

Room with mezzanine
The stairs in this nautical style bedroom leads up to a small balcony.

Walls clad with planks of fir shuttering

Visit the bathroom
I like this bathroom with its soft colours and wood which make it warm. I wouldn't have the soap holder affixed to the wall, you'd get soapy water on the wooden surface which you will have to constantly be wiping off.

A happy weekend to all of you. I'll be back tomorrow!
