My Storybook House

I just found this house sitting in my drafts. I can’t remember where I found it but I had titled it ‘Practical Magic House’. I recall it being an artists’ home in France. It embodies completely the house in one of my favourite books and films ‘Practical Magic’ by Alice Hoffman. The rambling old house in a small Massachusetts town is central to the story. Having housed generations of pagan witches it is well loved and worn, with bottles and jars and herbs and flowers tumbling out of every crevice. I suppose it is the film that really brings the house to life. (how many times did i say ‘house’ then? I really don’t think it could be helped).

How could you ever be unhappy if you lived here…

    you’re right. i’d be all smiles if i called this place my home. how awesome is the first photo? it looks like they took some “found” wodden planks to build a countertop extension. i love that raw, nature-taking-over look.

    I know me too – i love the conservatory area. So beautiful. Although it does look like it might be a bit of a cold house…
