Renovation completed, now down to the furnishings

November 14, 2011

The renovation of our house was completed in May and we finally, finally moved in – broke, sick of builders and architects, but happy. (I will post some photos shortly – the before and after sort.)

Even six months on, we’re still in need of finishing things off and getting the right furniture in place. I’m currently awaiting delivery of my new Kilkenny chair covered in the beautiful ‘Bird Garden’ fabric by artist and printmaker, Mark Hearld. Mark works with the talented team at St Jude’s, and this piece is in a limited edition collection of sofas and chairs by sofa.com. All the pieces are on view in their Chelsea showroom.

 

I like to think I’m going for a mid-century (who isn’t these days?), eclectic look throughout the house. But I suspect it’s more ‘jumble sale meets while elephant rejects’. Or just ‘dump’. But I can aspire…

More soon.
