London Oak Table Do you like it real?

 

 

Like so many things today there is a “Fake” for wood. Whilst real wood is beautiful - No two pieces are ever the same. The variations in grain, pattern and colour are what give real wood its natural beauty and timeless appeal. The “Fake” versions often have less of the variations in grain, pattern, and colour making it more uniform.

Does all your furniture match or do you have an eclectic taste?

Unless you are starting a fresh these days it tends to be very rare that one can buy a full suite of furniture for a room. If you are like me then your house it a bit of a hotch potch of different furniture pieces that have come from a variety of places – some inherited, some chosen and some donated... but does it matter?

What are You Focused on?

19 Nov 2016 17:20:00

Living room layouts can be controversial…

Do you have every seat facing the TV, make the most of the feature fireplace or do you have the surround sound sweet seat?? Focusing on the fireplace seems like a very ‘grown up’ thing to do (and I would really, really love a grown up living room) but in the world of our little family we are more about comfort and yes we do watch TV so we have to have at least 4 seats facing it…
