I’d be terrified one of my littles would do something disastrous like cut the curtains or take a sharpie to the old painted doors. It’s giving me heart palpitations just thinking about it! ;o)

I always thought they looked so dreamy–all those Pottery Barn magazines I studied as a teenager with perfect light flowing through large, clear windows and a sisal rug (usually) underneath the bed set my heart aflutter. In reality, I think they’d be awfully cold, hard for little kids learning to walk (ouch, conk on the head) and drive your heating bill up. Thus I would want to cover them with rugs, and then what of the beautiful floors would I see? But I’m glad to see that I’m wrong for at least your lovely house!

They have been hard on the baby though. I always worry about the kids chipping a tooth and put rubber bumpers on the steps when they are crawling. We’ve broken quite a few dishes and glasses that may have “bounced” on a wood floor. Yours are just beautiful with character.

I can just picture your family bustling around in there. What fun :)

I hope you packed plenty of those baby legwarmer things for when June gets ready to venture out on all fours!

And my 8 month old shows not the slightest interest in crawling…nor in abandoning her swaddling. Sigh.

I think you have everyone beat with the gorgeous floors of La Cressonnière.

My in-laws bought their first home when my husband was a baby, and it was one “building” in a community of several that was a 13th century abbey, and it’s where they housed the cows! It’s absolutely beautiful and right on the water in Bretagne. My mother-in-law loves design and had a great eye when she bought the property!

The people who refinished them said that nobody is installing floors like these anymore, except for malls, airports and supermarkets.
I wasn’t a huge fan of terrazzo before, but I’m loving them now. And did I mention, there’s no grout! ! !

No stone here – lots of hardwood and some congoleum (fake tile so it’s never cold). I wanted slate in the kitchen but the upkeep was more than I wanted to deal with. And I couldn’t afford in-floor heat. : )

So, I’m just sitting here thinking how much I’m enjoying all of these posts about La Cressonniere… and also thinking what a fun voyage of discovery it is for you & yours! In some respects, living in this furnished & fitted “Old World” home seems like a real departure from your own personal style, which always looks so modern and streamlined (via blog photos, of course). I wonder how living in this design style for the next year will influence your personal tastes and preferences? Just curious musings… And another fun part of the voyage of discovery for you, I’m sure. :-)

Thank you for taking the time to document and share. Simply loving it!
Best,
- C
