Summer Home Tour

Summer Home Tour

The Dining Area The dining area is at one end of a long living room, which is also my husband’s office. Because the room serves so many functions, I keep the styling… View Post

Design Finds | Frontal Factory Concrete Lighting

Design Finds | Frontal Factory Concrete Lighting

I promised one more post about my new work space, because I need to talk about the concrete desk lamp from Frontal Factory. I spotted this concrete and brass beauty at Design Junction. It belongs to a series called Form Follows Function. I got in touch with the designer behind Frontal Factory, Mehmet Birtane, to see if there was any way I could get my hands on one. My concrete desk lamp was one of a very limited number. Fortunately, though,… View Post

DIY | A Waney/Live Edge Desk

DIY | A Waney/Live Edge Desk

The master bedroom in my house has built-in cabinets either side of a Velux window. They’d become a catch-all for clutter, and they were crying out to be better utilised. So, I built a DIY live edge desk top to turn the space into a double-duty office and vanity area. Where and How to Buy Live Edge Wood Live edge wood (aka waney edge) is where the natural edge of the wood is kept rather than cut straight, leaving an… View Post

There were so many amazing room makeovers that came out of the Spring 2016 One Room Challenge.

Mood Board | Design Plans for a Long Living/Dining Room

I’ve just been granted clearance to buy a fancy Chesterfield, and I want to nail down the design plans for my dining/living room quick in case the hubs changes his mind. It’s a multifunctional space, with a study area thrown in for good measure, and, as usual, I’m blending an eclectic mix of design styles. The living/dining room is long and narrow, which makes for a bit of a design challenge, especially with so much to fit in. We need… View Post
