Planning & Playing!





Hi Guys

I don't know about you but I love to mess around with the mini's I have to see how a room will work. It helps to give an idea of the scale of the room and also allows you to work out where that special "must have" item will go. Of course, that's not to say I'm not already planning the next mini acquisition!

In the picture above I was playing around with some things to work out the best use of space in the attic sitting room. This is going to be a very relaxed old-fashioned room, even a bit of chintz! The bedroom will lead off this room but I'm still working it out. I'm not sure whether to have a tiny old attic style corridor with the bedroom and sitting room off to either side, or an opening in the wall between the two. More playing is required I think.

Talking of which, here is a glimpse of the colours and style I am going to put in the dining area of the ground floor area, adjacent to the kitchen. I like the blues and hope they work with the french grey I am painting the dining table.


I'm also considering moving the angled wall that the range sits against. It looks ok as it is but the more I plan and work with the space the less options I have for the dining area, not to mention a rather stunted entrance area. I may have to remove it completely and put in a galley style kitchen. More pressure on the grey cells!

I'll keep you posted...
Have a great day, All…
