Our house is always evolving.
Paintings go up and come down at regular intervals. Cushions rotate. Furniture rotates. It’s fun.
I thought I might share some recent finds!
A mid-century cocktail cabinet – that opens up to reveal a mirrored bar. I love the long proportions of this. It was a bargain and scored from here.
The footstool a lucky market find!
Our Hall cabinet was another lucky market find from here. And the mirror was from a job lot auctioned on ebay. Damn I love that mirror. It’s HUGE and opens up the small space between the stairs and the bathroom beautifully. Read the story behind the Munch print here. Perhaps I forgot to mention that I stole it from a Tram. Lets keep that to ourselves eh.
Our dining room (almost never used for dining). Parker chairs picked up from here. Table another find from Ellie, and the chaise is a family heirloom brought back from the UK by my grandparents. It sat in their bar room and I remember swinging my legs on it as a kid and being told to be careful not to spill my drink. My mum gave it to me a few years ago and we recently had it recovered. It’s special! Side table from here, and cushions made mostly by me.
It’s a moveable feast – all of it. And none of it cost very much. The nicest part of it is knowing when you find a bargain its because it hasn’t been valued, and that it was meant to come to you for oiling, and loving and long lingering looks. So addictive the hunt!
