Seeing Red....

Having painted my little wall cupboard red, I have been moving some of my possessions around to create more of a red theme within the room. (I see them afresh when they are in a new situation.) The cloth on top of the cupboard is a vintage curtain- it was lined in lime gingham, which I think is fun. There is nothing precious or expensive here- just things that appeal to me.

I painted the little set of shelves in the same red as the wall cupboard.

Our old wooden bench now has our red eiderdown on it as a seat pad.

On the wall is a piece of my favourite French fabric in a white painted frame. We hope to have the small painted cupboard on the wall soon, to complete the room. Paint is a wonderful invention!- the look of a room can change quickly and cheaply!....So when I tire of red....

  9. Hi Carol, (and all)
    Thank you for your comments. My home was featured in '25 Beautiful Homes' July 2006. I felt the best features were not shown, it all looked quickly put together and my business was hardly mentioned.
    I shall be away until Sept 5th, so will sort out some pictures from it when I get back.

  10. Oh great thanks for letting me know and have a good time away!

  11. You are very very creative!


  12. Your home is just gorgeous !!! I love your decoration !
