We have a wee house in a rural village in the heart of Italy - it has been in my husband's family for a couple of generations and has been left to him. We have used it as a bolt-hole for years, but it has always needed some serious TLC, which we have only recently been able to give it. It has one bedroom with a largish living/dining room, which we use for accommodating extra guests on a bed-settee.
The far wall is most unusual as it it is totally blank - no window, door or even radiator. It is an open-plan space, so looking from the kitchen, all you see is is this blank wall. I have been looking (subliminally) for something special for that wall and I believe I found it!
