It's been a long time coming but finally the day has arrived to take out this gorgeous 70's beauty and replace it with something that matches the feel of the rest of the house, classy, practical, warm and inviting with a twist of character.
I had an amazing day last October which I have not shared with you on the blog which was such a shame, so as they say, better late than never.......
One of the things that we fell in love with at this old stone cottage was the 35 ancient olives trees dotted around the numerous garden terraces. The first couple of years were so consumed with renovating the house that I'm afraid I just couldn't handle the harvest of olives but one morning last October, I woke with a new task at hand and an experience that I have never been lucky enough to be involved in before, the olive harvest.
The kitchen renovation is in full swing and I'm looking for inspirational ideas to help me create my space. My first port of call was De Tonge established in 1967 in a workshop in Provence with a jaw dropping showroom in Mougins.
I love everything about this provencal kitchen from the beautiful work surfaces to the stunning chandelier.
Welcome to my vintage life where I am living my dream renovating an old stone villa in the hills of Grasse, spending my time scouring the local flea-markets finding all things old, vintage and shabby to give this little old house a soul.
Here is a snap shop of my garden where I have big plans to grow as much home grown produce as possible, a place where the children can learn and experience hand's on where their food is coming from and I can learn to live with the land.
