|Apologies for the photography - it's such a hard room to photograph in, night or day.|
Now, on Friday when I went to sew with Suz, from 'All the Good Ones Are Taken', she put up with me panicking about how much I hated the colour I had chosen (and bought already) and thinking up all sorts of schemes to try and not hate the colour. So she'll be pleased to know that I just went ahead and used it anyway.....and I love it! Ha!
It makes me think of warm and cosy colonial libraries or sitting rooms. Especially with the white trim and the wooden joinery. It's a bit darker than I thought it would be, but not enough to get me worried that it will effect the way I see colours or anything.
Speaking of warmth. We've had another development here. Hubby was determined to have a wood burner installed by this winter. Well, it's in and it's warm! It's plenty big enough to heat the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen and the bedrooms and studio as well. In fact when we close off the other parts of the house, it gets a wee bit too toasty! It's got a cooking surface on top so we can save a bit of gas and the best thing is that we have enough land here to grow our own firewood. We'll be planting some more trees soon with just that in mind.
Hope your weekend was as productive as mine!
