During the threshing, farmworkers brought 3-bushel, or 20-kilo, grain bags here and emptied them in a corner, leaving the grain to rest. The Grain Store was then reopened at least once a month in order to move the grain and prevent mould from forming. Some bags were destined for sowing the following year, others sold and the rest for family use.


Just like the timid cornflower blooming among the wheat, I decided to use a soft blue colour for this apartment.

The Grain Store is probably the most romantic apartment of all.

Intimate, but also cheerful and festive, it reminds us of the great days of country festivities. Often the families of neighbouring farms gathered together to help one another, exchange crops and celebrate with evening parties.
