Isn't it interesting how design plays such a significant role in our lives.
Some things are admired for their beauty, some for their practicality.
I always think it is best when the two attributes are combined.
|This french clock tells me the time.|
The old fireplace is an architectural feature but is
also capable of warming the room.
|This bench top is practical for preparing food and you can never have enough storage.|
As for the stool, it makes a great place for someone to sit at
with a glass of wine to keep me company while I cook.
|The balustrade is athestically pleasing and comes with the|
added benefit of stopping me falling down the stairs.
There's windows and then there's windows. This arched window at the top
of the landing acts as a skylight. The light dances and changes throughout
|I love the design of these doorstoppers and how practical!|
|I wouldn't be without a rail for drying clothes. The shirts|
dry with almost no creases. I only bought a dryer last year. We managed
to go 35 years of married life without one.
|The opening skylight in the laundry is beautifully designed and has improved the feel|
of the room enormously.
|The rattan inserts in the built-in robes look 'plantation' style and|
have the benefit of allowing airflow through the clothes, avoiding mould.
And how elegant are silk curtains with their luxurious tie-backs?
Just a few of my favourite things.
Eclectic I know.
