the "Lounge" at La Maisonnette

• 30 September 2009

On the second level of La Maisonnette we decided to take out a bedroom wall and instead create a lounge/family room/entertainment area for our guests. We are sooo glad we did this my friends. Walking up the stairs to this open, airy space is exhilerating. And the view from this door is incredible! I miss it already...September is such a beautiful time to be in Beynac.

To develop a full appreciation for this room be sure to check out a few other posts:

1. nighttime view from the balcony here
2. view from the outside looking in here.
3. this incredible video of Scott jackhammering the stone wall as well as some "before" footage

I would've liked a more traditional-looking sofa in the cottage; but this is--to be sure--the only leather couch in all of France that would fit through the balcony door. Being so easy-to-clean, leather seemed like the best option. They don't exactly have upholstery cleaners readily available in the middle of rural France!

Gorgeous. I realize it's just too much work for me to pull off at present, but you've inspired me to actually look at real estate in France. When I showed my husband the before-&-after shots you posted yesterday, he asked when we could move in.

What a process! I especially like day turning into night out the open door of the time lapse video. I also love the great vintage-y poster and the dark wood lintel... different layers of history. Congrats on all your hard work!

I think one of the things that I am loving The Most about this beautiful home are all the shapes of the doors and the windows. They're utterly and simply charming!
