Accessories for an old stone house

In several villages in the UK, as well as in France, along with other places, you will find extremely charming stone houses, like the ones shown in the photo above. I simply love these houses, they are among the most beautiful houses one can ever find if you ask me. I could definitely see myself living in one of these houses, as I think the surroundings in these villages are amazing as well. Serene nature, green areas, and a welcoming atmosphere. What’s not to love?

Well, what I want to discuss today is the decor of these houses. They require a different style compared to modern houses, don’t you think? I sure think so! Do you have an old stone house today? Then you know perfectly well what I mean.

I don’t know what you think, but I know three accessories I wouldn’t be able to resist if I moved to a place like this. I will list them, and if you want you can add your own list in the comment field.


  • A black, oval house number sign. I think it would be such a lovely match. Take a look at them in our Etsy shop to see what I’m talking about.
  • A lovely, old-fashioned mail box. Would be a perfect match as well.
  • A wooden box with living flowers beside the mail box, to welcome all visitors and to boost the warm and welcoming feeling of the house.


These are my three, and I’m eager to hear yours.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you why you should check out our oval house number in time for Christmas 🙂
