Here’s another peak of our rental home here in France. Today, I’ve snapped some of my favorite details from Olive’s Room. It’s actually Baby June’s room too, but my pictures of the gorgeous antique crib didn’t turned out, so we’ll revisit that yummy little tidbit later.
This headboard is my favorite one in the house. Isn’t it lovely? Here’s a detail shot:
At first glance, it looks like the bottom half of the walls have been papered in an ornate pattern, but on closer inspection, the whole thing is a hand-painted mural. I love the elephant.
The ceilings in this house are very high and make even the smallest rooms feel grand. This one is painted in colors that match the wall mural.
The house is full of original art. Truly, there is artwork in literally every room and hallway. One of my very favorite pieces is this sculpture of a giraffe parent and child. It appears to be sculpted right out of the wall. Here’s a detail shot:
When we’re not renting this house, the room functions as one of two guest rooms. In fact, this whole area of the house is typically closed off for the winter so that it doesn’t need to be heated. This bedroom is the smallest of the five in the house, but it’s still plenty big. Nine-year-old Olive feels like a queen in her own big bed.
P.S. — For those who are curious, yes, the homeowner is an artist. He works with his brother and they have amazing pieces all over our little town. I’m working on a post about it and promise to share soon.
