When we bought the house of Anaïs, it really was because of the lovely garden and the image we had of what the house could become — despite the purple-painted ceilings, silver Chinese writings on the wall, mint-green and peach toilets, all the excessive color contrasts and mismatches, and the dampish smell in the house. But it certainly took us some time to get to the lovely end result!
The upstairs loft area had two tiny bedrooms (one with a sink) and this mint-green toilet corner. We opened the space up into one spacious room, insulated it well, and added a new bathroom with a walk-in shower. I don't normally go for carpets since we have asthma in the family, but here I chose natural seagrass covering for the whole bedroom.

Here's the open space afterwards. I used the very popular magnolia color as the base for the whole house; it's very neutral with an airy tone, but not as sterile as pure white.
