Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely and creative one. We're hoping for a relaxed couple of days here — though I think Andrew will be checking out the latest round of live cricket commentary! How about you?

A former oil mill near Nîmes is now an open, loft-style home for Marie-Laure and her American husband John. Sensitively restored, they've left the original stone exposed inside and have kept to a minimalist white colour scheme, allowing the soaring ceilings and amazing windows to have centre stage. Outside, bamboo and olive trees add soft green shade around the courtyard pool. Cool, tranquil and lovely, it's the ideal warm weather home. More here on CôtéMaison.
