...and Tina here is also an inspiration. I love her place and checking out her projects!
Me? I tend to paint everything white or off-white and then add some bits and pieces for interest. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Like the time I though black cushions would look FAB and add contrast and "interest" on the stone coloured sofa and chairs. Unfortunately, I failed to realise that the dog and cat hair would make them look like mohair after just a couple of days, so they were removed, pretty quickly.
Anyway, I digress.... Today I begin a very limited tour of Number 10. Limited because not all of it is worthy of public viewing...I begin with the mantle in the living/lounge room....and yes, we are without a heater at the moment.
The black hole here used to house a gas log fire, and my job over the next few weeks is to get a new one. The hearth was covered in charcoal slate, but MONT removed it and will re-do the hearth in sandstone, because we have some left over from the outdoor paving.
The clock was a bargain from Oswald Sealy in Johnston St.Fitzroy, which is well worth a visit.
These birds were a Christmas gift a couple of years ago... and the two "vases" were a bargain from a place called Albi Imports. If you're looking for home wares, then a trip to the Albi Imports outlet store in Chifley Drive, Preston will duly impress you.
