Set on display

September 30, 2008

I’m just not sure about this room. It sounds a clever idea to have a TV stand as an easel but in practice I just don’t like it. I realize it is a mix of old and new, however it also turns it into the focal point of the room. In my opinion, in most cases a TV should be an addition to a scheme not the centre piece.

Organized hallway

I love this families organised hallway – they’ve got a mini black board for each person to leave notes and reminders – very Martha Stewart!

Living room with storage unit

This storage unit transforms this living room – just goes to show the right piece of furniture can make all the difference. Plenty of shelves satisfy my storage fetish, too!

Eclectic dining room

September 26, 2008

I really liked this room, but then I saw the pram in the corner.  I love items from junk shops etc but I’m not sure if this might be a bit too much?

Spiral staircase

I just couldn’t resist putting this staircase in!  Almost space-age, I love the smooth curve effect.

Relaxed living room

I’ve always been a bit wary of mixing and matching furniture – but it works so well in this room, giving it a totally relaxed feel – just what a living room should be!

Hi-gloss kitchen

September 25, 2008

Gloss kitchens can look so good – especially when there is plenty of sunlight pouring into them.  This one is set below a glass extension and has a beautiful finish.

Light, bright kitchen

What a cool kitchen – and not just for the cat!  The row of pendant lights will really highlight the island unit at night. The glass shelves at the back are perfect for showing off statement glasses.

Decorative bedroom

As you might of guessed from previous posts I’m a massive wall sticker fan!  This is a cool idea – taking a stream of butterflies off furniture and onto the wall…

Underground living room

September 23, 2008

This living room is actually from an underground home set beneath a hill – the big window looks great and I love the domed ceiling.
