"Shabby chic"

Queen's hamlet farm Versailles
This looks like... a shabby chic French countryside house, doesn't it? Well, it's one of the Queen's hamlet's farm buildings! Just look at that icicle hanging from the beautiful wooden gutter!

On dirait un peu une maison "shabby chic" ou tout simplement une vieille maison dans un village... C'est en fait l'un des bâtiments de la ferme au hameau de la reine ! Regardez-moi cette stalactite tombant de la belle gouttière en bois !

The French have brought the world so much, including shabby chic. Love it!

I'm enjoying the construction details like the hinges on the shutters and the lintels over the windows. Wooden gutters, that's not something I often see.

What a perfect building, just shabby enough and just chic enough, only in France, brilliant.
