Part 8 - Lounge

Summer 2008


This was quite a big project involving a new fireplace as well as a whole new ceiling!

Lounge before:

(mmmm, more anaglypta!)

(notice the useless windows and tiny radiator?)

Lounge during:

Lounge after:

(notice the beautiful patio doors?)

Much much nicer, nice idea the doors - did that needing planning permission?

Working Mum said...

kelloggsville - No, it didn't need planning permision, but because we'd changed a window into a door, and effectively lost an opening window, there had to be a different opening window in the room, so the little window in the corner had to be changed to one that opened. Regulations, huh!

Expat mum said...

Wow - what a transformation. And great use of colour too!

All the rooms look gorgeous and absolutely perfect. There's no way I can compete with that, as I shall be doing most of the work myself and cannot really afford any major changes to furniture or fittings. (Sigh)

Oh I love this room, too! I can imagine sitting there in the winter near the fireplace reading a book snuggled under a blanket. And I LOVE your furniture!
