At home in a boarding school

The unusual and gorgeous home of Alain and Claude Fassier was featured in the July issue of House & Garden. This adventurous family converted a 19th century boarding school into their home and shop. With huge proportions (13,000 ft. sq. in all) and unique layout, it seems the perfect live and work situation for a family who loves renovating and antiques.

Who wouldn't love dining outdoors in this open setting? I discovered the House & Garden article thanks to Claude's lovely blog, La Maison Fassier , which also showcases her other many talents.
