I am curious… if you purchased a very old home with loads of character, complete with peeling wallpaper, peeling paint, original doors and windows etc…..how much would you want to keep vs salvage and live with? Kudos to the owners of this home in Pau, France (Lisa and Julien Ménard and their 5 kids) for maintaining much of the period details. Stripping it of its history would have been cruel.

Lovely, but the bathroom floor concerns me.
Perfection as is. Adore its charm!
A friend sent me this as it’s very similar to my house in France. I love the period details but all that clutter would drive me insane. Appreciate that’s just my personal opinion. My friend loves it.
I would leave a great deal of it. I would need to do some work on the kitchen but I’d keep the casual, vintage feel.
