    Default In Provence, an 18th-century Farmhouse With a Pool


    Remi Benali for The New York Times
    This four-bedroom restored farmhouse near the village of Cavaillon in Provence is on the market for 1.6 million euros ($2.67 million.) Half of the property’s 4.7 acres are lavender fields.

    Just needs to lose a little of the too precious in the kitchen and entrance way, but YES please.

    Yah, fork it the fuck over. I'll deal with the funky yellow and white bathroom too. Y'all are invited over for a pool party.

    it's way too 'rich, elle décor-reading american moves to france, buys old house and redecorates it French Country style' - the kind of french country style that decoating magazines invented and doesn't actually exist in the french country.

    but i'll take it, rip out the nasty bathroom tiles, throw out the topiaries and all the dried shit hanging from the ceiling and the twee country furniture and start over. the house itself and the grounds are pretty sweet.

    I could do something with the horrid interior because the exterior is fabulous.

    Can you imagine the amazing SMELL from those lavender fields? The rest of it is a bit of a cliche but nothing a dumpster and a coat of paint couldn't fix. I am baffled by the plastic lemons/garlic/bread.
