Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Hellooooo!!! I miss you, guys!!! There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thinking about you, my friends! First of all I want to thank each and every single one of you for your comments and emails! I really want to write back to you and I will as soon I can spend more time sitting on this chair. Your love, your words and support touched my heart and is making this moment even more special and it feels so amazing to share my son’s birth with you all.

So, let me update you about how my life is going right now. Matthew is just how I felt he was when inside of my womb. He’s really calm, even when he cries (only when it’s bottle time), it’s a sweet cry. He’s getting cuter and smarter by the day. I love looking at him, holding him. My older kids are the best siblings Matthew could have. They’re being helpful and seem even more mature and they know they’re lucky for having our little guy with us. My husband is also “gaga” over our baby! It’s a gift seeing how much he loves and cares about him. He’s also being unbelievable, doing everything around the house, from cleaning to doing tons of laundry and taking care of the kids. I feel very “limited” right now since I ended up having a C-Section and if you ever had one, you know that it’s not easy to have surgery and then have to take care of a baby the very next minute. I can’t spend much time around the computer for obvious reasons, but I’ve prepared some posts for you guys and have some great friends will also be guest posting here in the next few days. I can’t wait to share their talent with you!

So, life is pretty busy right now, my house is not the way I usually like it to be and I’m not sleeping much. But nothing can substitute the happiness of the feeling of having your family complete and that’s how I feel when I look around and see my kids running around, my husband preparing our dinner while I feed our baby. I’m living the sweet chaos of a disorganized house filled with noise and laughter.


Now, to our post of the day…


This is a space I can’t stop thinking about. It’s not easy for me to keep a place in my mind for a long period of time since I see so many houses and interiors on a daily basis, but this one is truly special. This century XIX house, located in Nimes, South of France made me dream of the kind of lifestyle ones can have in this place. The house was in a really bad shape and had to be demolished and built again, using the same savage materials, like beams and stones, respecting the integrity of the old home.

It doesn’t get much better than this!


Keep it simple and let the architecture of the space speak.

Dining Room & Living Room

The dining room opens to the beautiful and airy living room (please, see more of the living room on the first picture).


I feel in love with this kitchen as soon I saw it.

Island & Stones

This island very charming and useful. That’s always important to me. Whenever I buy something for my house I usually ask myself if I’ll actually use it, that’s how I feel my money is worth.


The kitchen has a great flow to the rest of the house.

Eating Area

Interesting mix of elements brings lots of interest to this space. I love the stones, beams and the iron door and windows. Absolutely gorgeous!


Great idea of using this space as a family office and eating area. The oversized desks can be a very good place for homework and computers, while the shelves add storage and beauty to the room.

Master Bedroom

I love the architecture of this bedroom. The stone wall is a dream, the carpet compliments the walls perfectly.


The closet is hidden behind the linen curtains.

Dark Gray

This bedroom is perfect from any angle.

Master Bathroom


Little Girl’s Bedroom

Very sweet.


This is a bit too dark to be a little girl’s bathroom, but I love every detail here. It’s a very unique bathroom.


Call it “paradise in South of France”.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this beautiful house as much as I did.

Have you ever been to South of France? I’d love to go someday, discover beautiful tiny villages, experience the culinary and the peaceful pace of life.

Also, please make sure to drop by Houzz today to take a look at my “20 picks” of the month! It’s all about bringing baby to a sweet nursery. Fantastic if you’re expecting or if you know someone that is. You’ll find lots gift ideas, perfect for baby showers.

Have a great day, everyone!

  1. Yay, Luciane! So happy for you! I had a c-section with my twins so I know how it is. Try to take it easy and you’ll be back to yourself before you know it! xoxo!

  2. Claudia said,

    I love the stone walls more than anything!
    I had c-sections with both my boys so please, take care of yourself, my dear friend, and many kisses to sweet Matthew!

  3. Welcome back! So glad to see one of your beautiful posts again. Welcome to adorable Matthew!

  4. Great to hear from you, Luciane! So happy for you and your family! I had 4 c-sections and the recovery is not much fun. Get some rest and embrace the chaos 🙂

  5. BB said,

    Wow! What a beautiful home. I caught House Hunters International recently, where an American family was buying a home in Provence. The prices are very high, so this place would cost a fortune!

    Glad to hear you and your family are well. Congratulations!,

  6. Welcome back, Luciane! I’ve missed you!!! I was so happy to see a Home Bunch post waiting 🙂 And what an amazing home to see. I LOVE this home, and could move in anytime.

    I hope you are seriously taking things slow and easy. I love the picture you painted of your home right now – filled with commotion of all the right kind!

    XO Sheila

  7. So glad to hear from you. Take care of your self and that little baby of yours. So happy for you and your family. I cant believe your already posting . I was so tired after having my babies, it took me about 2 months to get back to normal. I love all the stone in this home. Great post!

  8. Gloria said,

    Greetings! I didn’t look at much of the ‘home’ featured on “Home Bunch” today… I was more enamored with hearing about Matthew! 🙂
    I had a C-section too, it’s not a piece of cake… If it’s still hard for you to sit up without hurting, sling a sheet (or even a towel) under one of your feet (under the ball of the foot) and the two side ends of the sheet/towel in each hand, then you can pull on the sheet/towel to “brace” yourself against your foot to help sit up. It works, trust me. Anyway, glad your hubby is helping out and the kids are so happy with Matthew! So nice to hear. Take care and rest up!

  9. Sherri @ Inside Out Design said,

    Ahhh soooo good to hear from you 😉 I’m glad you are doing well and within a few weeks you will feel much much better (I had two c-sections). Take the time you need to heal!!! xo Sherri (Nice post by the way!)

    Hi Luciane, so good to hear that you and little Matthew are fine!! He is so cute and adorable!!
    Luciane, a week ago I have fallen of my horse and had a fracture on one of the vertebrae. So I have to rest at this moment. I don’t know if I will have the time to make a guest blogpost because it is also so busy at our company and I really have a lot of work and I try to do this sitting at my desk. I will try. Please forgive me if I can’t . Is this ok for you my friend?!
    Hugs to you all!

  11. Barbara@HausDesign said,
