Guest House Recycled

The World of Interiors, July 2010

I’ve been working on my garden shed project I posted recently.  One of the goals of that project is not to only spiff up the garden shed, but to empty the shed and our garage of some of the left over construction materials that have been piled up for two years now.  That’s one of the reasons I was so attracted to this guesthouse in the south of France.  It looks like the perfect ‘get away from it all’ vacation spot.  If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know I’m all about mixing old and new.  Also, this guest house is a great example of keeping it green.  The house is a recycled old hen house.  The owner reused recycled doors, windows, radiators, & corrugated tin.  Of course I love all the planking and the modern shower in the bathroom is super cool. 



  1. Love.it.all. Shower by Richard Serra? That is so cool! I've always loved corrogated tin and the way this is peiced together, it reminds me of the make-do workclothes quilts of the south. If I could only have this overlooking Provincetown harbor, my life would be complete.
