Joséphine Ryan lives between London and the sunny country of Uzès, in France. She has restored an abandoned village house in which she displays her collection of antiques with inspired simplicity.
Opening onto a corner of the garden, the dining room's main features are original such as the reddish clay flooring, wooden beams, and stone fireplace. Distressed Swedish wooden chairs surround the farm style table which was custom made.
The table in the dining room stands on a cream coloured cement tile rug. A 19th century chipped rocking chair in the corner on the right.
These rudimentary stairs lead from the dining room to the living room. Glass topped wrought iron round table. The lamp is made with a dark gray shade mounted on an 18th century architectural element. Church candlesticks found in Montpellier.
The vaulted ceiling in the kitchen was restored. Cupboards and tiled worktop were custom made. Lantern, table and chairs, Joséphine Ryan Antiques.
