Love the blind on the french doors. - Are those blinds permanently attached to the french doors? Are you aware of any installation that does not required to drill a hole into the french door? Another question on the french door - does the doors require additional painting when they came with manufacturing finish?

Yes, the blinds are permanently attached to the doors. There may be a way to use velcro to attach the blinds instead of using a system which requires drilling in the wood. We did paint the doors after they were installed, but some manufacturers sell windows and doors pre-painted.

The mirror - "trumeau" in french - is old. Traditionally, trumeaux were built above fireplaces in in France as far back as the 15th century. This one came from a 19th century Paris Left Bank apartment.

I don't remember the company that makes it. I bought it at a home design store in Paris. But I have seen similar lights in the US as well. You may have luck googling it.

I have a very similar light which looks the same size, but mine has a different pattern. I bought it in John Lewis and it's made in Egypt.

It's an antique french mirror, called a trumeau, that was originally hung over a fireplace in haussmanian style building in Paris. You can find them in flee markets around Paris, like the porte de Clignancourt market, where there is a specialist in old trumeaus.

You can also make one with mdf and basic molding from your local big box store. You will need to buy the mirrored glass, which is quite inexpensive if you skip the bevelling and then trim it out around the edges of the mirror and another rectangle above the mirror. You can top of the mirror with small scale crown or cap molding. You will obviously have to paint it all out but it will cost you a 10th of the cost than if you buy an antique (undamaged) trumeau.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A guest bedroom on the ground floor of the barn looks onto one of the home's many gardens. Embroidered bedding from Paris mimics the engravings on an antique light fixture.
The most critical tool you can have when photographing your home is patience. Making adjustments to your space or figuring out settings on your camera can take time, but that practice will only make your shots better. If the challenge of photographing your entire home feels overwhelming, take it on in pieces. Build your confidence by starting with one room and work to make that shot perfect. Only tackle the rest when you have successfully captured your first space. Great shots are possible even with minimal equipment. With a little effort your home photos will shine.

Looking at it after the renovation, it's hard to believe that it still had dirt floors and mud walls when they began.
