Quite a change!

Today the carpet took its place in the snug - so apart from the roman blinds, the snug is now finished. I have used existing furniture but we did buy some new lamps yesterday.


We were particularly impressed by this mood light. You turn it on by touching the base - touch again for a brighter light and again for the brightest setting.



The nest of tables were mums - not sure if I will keep them in this room, but they are good for now. The clock was a wedding present from my class back in 1988.


We replaced all light and power sockets with brushed steel - so much better.



My neighbour and I are going to be using the fabric I shared here to make a roman blind.......should be interesting!
So the snug is complete and we have now started on the lounge! Gluttons for punishment eh? Still, we can relax in the snug and shut the door at the end of the day.
Will keep you posted of the next stage!

  2. It is beautiful, Denise! Love the colours and how you've arranged things. I think I should replace my old brass light switches to the brushed nickel/steel too! Looks so modern! :D

  20. A "snug"--a new word for my vocabulary. Has the connotation of being a place for quiet and calm play and introspection.

  22. I love the nest of tables, but of course in that location you can't un-nest them.
    Aren't touch-lamps a great idea?
    Your snug looks very snug, indeed, Mrs. N.
