    I can't get past the nasty white plastic dining chairs. Very rustic I'm sure. Grimm probably loves them.

    i love the exterior of the house, the dining table & the layout of the kitchen.
    but i find the interior itself confusing. the finish looks very artificial. most noticeable on the wardrobe, the headboard, the stairs & that little chair.
    i hate chandeliers in houses, esp. glassy versions. they dominate the space too much. and can look very tacky depending on the owner's taste.
    and i'm not digging the white chesterfield & the plastic white chairs. but i'm pretty sure the views are amazing.

    I do like the staircase though. It looks like it could go on forever. Very graceful.

    i hate the white chesterfield too. and i admit it's pretty contrived but overall i still really like this, even the chandeliers, which i almost never like but i think they work here.

    I like it. It is in Provence,after all. That would be the best part!

    Yes, those dining room chairs are certainly back yard circa 1997.

    Now i could work with that. Ditto about plastic chairs. i require something cushioned. and cancel the chandeliers for lamps.

    Way to ruin a fantastic house, decorate a mas de Provence in Gustavian style, it's ridiculous, keep that thing in Scandinavia if you like but it has nothing to do in a mediterranean house
