I thought it might be interesting to do a couple of posts on random corners in our house; I snapped all these photos in one go, and didn't move anything for the camera - these are 'as is' shots, the good, the bad and the rather ugly indeed.
Our bedroom. At least it's tucked behind the dressing table so you can't really see it, but it's still yucksville. But then, is it ever possible to have a bin in a room that looks attractive? Even stacking rolls of Cath Kidston wallpaper behind doesn't help. Oh yes, that's the wallpaper that we're planning to hang on one of the walls in our bedroom. We've been in the planning stages for over a year now. The wallpaper has been purchased and that's as far as we've got. Impressive, don't you think?
Over on the other side of the room is a corner I really rather like. This is the top of hubby's bedside table. I gave him the wooden box for Christmas; 'Thorley' is a name that goes way back in hubby's family and it's also one of DC's middle names. I'm rather impressed with how hubby is using it to contain his reading material; actually, I'm rather jealous.
Here's a corner of the windowsill in our ensuite; it contains my collection of glass bottles, plus some shells, starfish and a bit of driftwood. I'm not trying to introduce a beach-y theme to the ensuite, but I do seem to have some beach-y items (dust collectors) going on. Hmmm.
A corner in DC's room with a basket crammed full and spilling over with his cuddly toy collection. Awwww.
The spare room: old lampshade, books that were moved up here at Christmas time and haven't been rehomed; photos, etc that need hanging on a wall somewhere. Basically the top of this dresser in this room has become a dumping ground. Luckily this post is entitled 'Corners of Our Home' because actually this entire room is pretty much a dumping ground, but I don't have to show it to you right now.
A sweet little corner on the landing, on top of my unread (non-cosy) bookcase. Another wooden box (perhaps I could repurpose this on my bedside table in the manner of hubby's Thorley box), a ceramic owl from the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and a collection of photos
The guest room. Nice collection of Sanctuary Spa products; ugly lamp. I'm having an issue with bedside lamps in our house at the moment.
