French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.

The entry is done

15 Comments


Of all the amazing things. I walked into the house yesterday afternoon and the electricians had hung the pendants in the entry hall. I ordered them about 18 months ago, back when the guys said they would finish on time. They have languished in a box ever since. I have lived in fear that they would get mildewed or crushed or suffer some other horrible fate. But no, they survived and here they are. Unfortunately, so are those horrible metal caps.  This will do if I don’t ever look up but I’d rather find another electrician, one more sympathetic to old houses. Meantime, Jacques and I will be grateful for what we have.

  1. Looks beautiful, and very grand, as I knew it would ; and that is one decorative dog you have there.
    I have to say that I cannot understand why the fittings can’t be made flush with the ceiling, there is space above it surely?

  2. Or, could a decorative circular plaster moulding be fitted to conceal the cap thing? If it’s going to be a house wide problem, I’m sure someone adept at making plaster details with moulds could knock up a sectional one ( Maybe a quarter circle) , then just fit them, fill the joins, and paint. Voila!.
