    Default A converted 16th Century sheep barn

    A converted 16th Century sheep barn in St-Paul-de-Vence, South of France.
    It is clearly a place for creative & philosophical minds, in fact it is the home of Jacqueline Morabito and her late husband Yves Bayard.

    It does have a certain serene feeling. I like it for them.

    Too white, too sterile, too institutional looking. Looks like it was not even done with actual humans in mind-that when decorating, the thought never crossed their minds that people will actually be living here.

    'creative minds.." really? I do not see creativity in this place.

    My small place is exactly the opposite-too damn dark and not enough light/white. But this is too much of a good thing.

    very calming and serene at first, but I lived in a house that was this white once and I felt like a mental patient by month two. no thanks

    i like the white and the bareness of it. it's calming. but there are a few things that irk me, like the lack of shelving - i'd put all the stacks of books and magazines on a bookshelves, on the floor they just collect dust. i also don't care for the dining room stools - i like chairs with backs at a table.
    and that round sink in the bathroom is great - if it's for a guest bath, not if it's the main bath and you're expected to wash your face in that. i like a larger sink in my bathroom.

    Looks like a very personalized house - very them. Not very me, but I love some of the touches. Over all, too much like a sepulchre.

    too drab & institution-looking for me
