Monday Nook


The perfect spot for my little Ebay cushions

This Monday's Nook is my hall. I finally got everything off the floor and up on the walls, thanks to the guys at 'The Art Of Hanging'.

As soon as the spirit level and tape measure came out, I knew I was going to be witnessing 'poetry in motion'. Oh, professionals... I love 'em! I sat on the steps in my hall, watching them work, chewing their ears off.... adult conversation was needed in my camp as I had just spent the first morning, of the school holidays, refereeing trivial paediatric altercations (my boys even had a scuffle while they were here... something about someone blowing someone else's 'card house' down).


 I have 2 gorgeous skinny high lamps coming for the hall stand, ah la 'Karnas Hus style'

Anyway Andrew, from The Art Of Hanging' was full of wonderful advice. It was great to have another pair of eyes look over my place.


All I need now is a nice black and white mat for my framed violin music... one can't rush these things.


 
Oh yes, we got everything off the floor, even my old violins, that now take pride of place on the wall in the Great Room.
Have a great week!

  5. What great use of an entrance. It looks fantastic and I really like the use of dark wood... and having self hung 9 pictures myself (a bit skew whiff) on the weekend I could have used some professional help!

  6. Hi A-M. I've been a silent reader for quite some time now, and your house is just divine. Congratulations. I'm sure I'm not the only person to think or ask you this, but I'm putting in an early request - please please show us photos of your christmas tree. I have a feeling that it will be equally stunning.

  21. You hall looks so stylish and serene. I bet the boys love sliding around that lovely polished floor. Lucky you having the boys off already my crew are going through the chaos of the last week still and the requests for secret Santa presents, Christmas biscuits for break up parties and all the gifts for the teachers are keeping me far too busy.

  22. Looking soooo good A-M! I shed a silent tear though, I've had a lovely big mirror sitting on the floor of the new guest room for months. I must have asked MOTH a thousand times to hang it for me. Last weekend he even got as far as getting the drill out & moving the bench on the wall where the mirror needs to go. Come Monday I noticed the bench pushed back to the wall, the drill back in the toolbox & the mirror still on the floor - GO FIGURE UGHHHH!!!!
