Firstly I want to thank you all for wonderful support after my last post revealing my new venture. It is such a confidence boost to have such great friends who are happy to bestow on me wonderful words of encouragement.
Now, I was thinking, it's been a while since I showed you around the place in this post. When my Living room looked like this....
The wallpaper was pink with (not visible in pictures) flowers all over it. Not really my taste. The curtains drove me nuts, they remind me of someone wearing trousers that are too short, swinging around the ankles!
So, I wanted this house to be dressed in a style more befitting its era. Here it is...
The curtains are from Ikea and quite a steal at 35 pounds. And the mirror; which I LOVE was 50 pounds from a 'junk shop'. I have coveted the same or similar mirror for years which I originally found here for 571 pounds!!!
I'm not sure if you can tell, but the walls are grey. The colour is "Chiltern Grey" and I love it, it manages to be grey and warm at the same time - perfect. The 2 seater in the window is a new purchase from Laura Ashley in the UK but all the other furniture is from Canada. So, there we have it my new living room. next I'll show you what I've done with the sun room so far.
Today I have a meeting with the planning department to discuss plans to renovate our barn...
Have a wonderful week,
