[a beautiful converted barn]

There is nothing I love more than a converted building be it an old button factory or a city fire station.  There's something about their previous life that's so beautifully retained in its bones that gives the space "soul".
I read and hear of people managing to acquire buildings of this nature and I dream of one day having the opportunity to take on a similar project.
Oh how wonderful it would be!
For now, I'll continue pouring over innovative and awe-inspiring renovations like this one, until it's our turn.
The interiors of this beautiful converted barn are the work of French interior designer Joséphine Vérine- Gintzburger.  For more images of this amazing home or if you fancy swooning over more of Joséphine's inspiring work, visit here.

  1. I'm with you Jane. I have always loved the idea of living in a converted warehouse or church.

    I saw a program the other day on ABC Iview (can't remember the name & it only goes for about 10mins) and it looks at all different architecture designs (usually residential) in Australia. The one they had on the other day was a converted church. Very well done, they actually built it so if down the track they needed to remove it, it would come out without damaging the original structure.

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments.
They truly make my day!
