I agree it makes the room a little darker, but before it was red between the beams (typical normand houses) but i painted white, which is from my point of view much lighter.
This morning it's raining a lot , this is why it's so dark.
Here is the light! on the right of the fireplace.
A view of the fire place decorated for fall.This is the place i prefer, sit here with my dogs and read by the fireplace with a good cup of coffee!
This small cabinet was made by my father it keeps my little treasures! It is just the right size to go between the two doors.
Since i have painted it, we can see the carving much better. This wardrobe, i have it since i was born, before it kept my clothes and now this is my tableware.
More oak in the stairs. You must be used to these stairs , many falls occured here!
Before, i put wax on them to keep the beautiful color of wood, but i don't do it anymore.
I liked the smell of wax, I like the creaking of wood especially in autumn and winter.My father was working wood and i remember the smell of wood in my father's workshop, the smell of flax oil, wallnut oil . I loved the smell of pine tree . Well, i think i will stay inside today and do some cleaning! Have a nice day. Catherine.
