Rustic idyll

On Monday I featured a French dream of a house by Isabel López-Quesada. I thought I'd round out the week with another of her rustic projects. Corrugated iron is part of the Australian building vernacular. The rusty iron shed is burned into the Australian psyche. Never quite saw it done like this though. When faded chic meets iron shed. I'd love a weekender just like this ... in a moderate clime I think. Not so fab with heat or cold but we're dreaming here right ;) ? Speaking of a dream ... that kitchen! Sigh.

Great chair with the french linen red stripes and the rustic coffee table goes well in the room. The porch setting is very serene.

sweet like honey and warm as is the smell of burning wood

Très beau.

Another fine home ruined by the dead animals on the wall. Why do you keep posting those?

It looks great, but would it turn into an oven in summer? Maybe she has 15 cm of insulation on the other side!

Loving the corrugated metal, abhorring the animal heads.

Hi, did you take the photos yourself? I love the stags heads!

I love the kitchen, esp. the wall, and the furnishings throughout. But for my taste, maybe a little lighter on the corrugated iron. i feel one wall would have been nice. It's a little overwhelming.

Does anyone know where to buy the old metal? I don't have time to scour the countryside ripping it from old barns! : )
