It was my intention to share that top-left photo in my charming spaces post next Friday but it doesn't happen often that I come across house tours in interior magazines where almost all the photos appeal to me. A woman called Claire Peretti is the owner of this house, where she also keeps her studio. Its location is a small town south-east of Paris called Saint-Maur-des-Fossés. It was featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Maison Magazine.
As I said, first it was that top-left photo that lured me in. The white space looks somehow clean and pure with all that wood and the pink peonies. I also found it interesting that she had turned an old roof window into a mirror. By the way, the carved chest and other carved furniture in the home office were imported from Morocco.
When I was viewing the rest of the photos I was drawn to the wood throughout the house and I simply found this house so welcoming and charming. Let me add that I couldn't get enough of the grey colour of the sofa.
