Designers/stagers - you have my permission to weep over the fact that I did not remove the packing foam from under the piano legs for this photo - too tired by this stage! I was only thinking of my readers and their need to see photos..... any photos!I would like to thank each and every one of you for your LOVELY comments. I am dying to visit all of you individually but I am still on a dial up internet connection and everything takes absolutely AGES! How did I run an internet business on dial up all those years ago?????Isn't it funny how quickly you get so used to things.
This is the piano end of the Great Room, still waiting on 2 Louis chairs to soften the 'dagginess' of my 8 year old beige suede Freedom sofa (still in such good nick, I could NOT justify ditching it....... just yet!). The sister of this sofa is upstairs in the main bedroom..... which consists of bed and sofa... ran out of funds! The fireplace works but it makes me nervous. I have never had a fireplace before and..... with gas... it scares me for some reason...... oh and 'she of peasant stock' keeps thinking, "every millilitre of gas in this thing is one less millilitre I could use for my hot shower". Oh and don't get me started......... if I have to say one more, "turn off the lights".....
I am having gorgeous duck-egg blue silk curtains made for the French door behind the piano and Romans in a similar coloured patterned fabric. The window seats will have piped linen cushions in a darker blue hue. There will also be some sort of natural fibre rug...... that I haven't met yet. I am also having a beautiful lamp shade made up for that little lamp on the black drawers in the corner.
I can't wait for my fast internet connection. I have all this lovely new homewares stock for my store that I am very keen to load up. I will of course be displaying it first in my home..... who needs a boring old photo tent now. My Great Room window seats have the most perfect light for product photographing. Will I ever leave this place? I can't even bear to go grocery shopping. Where did A-M go?.... she was swallowed by 'The House'.
