Some Character

Im just wondering if Im spelling this right .....Mmmm maybe tthats why I cant find it in french....(confused smiley)

Anyhow ..I want to say to my builder that I want some shutters with a bit of character , as in not the off the shelf bog standard ones you find in DIY stores...

Do the french use the word character in the same way as us or is it just used on people ?

I have some photos of how they use to look in the old days and would like some thing simular but poshed up a bit to look more house like than barn like if you know what I mean ....!!

 

Many Thanks

Re: Some Character

My large Larousse  (Ooerr Matron!) gives caractère for distinction or originality
