The forgotten room
Real Reveal time. There’s a reason I rarely photograph more than two rooms in this house, and here it is.
What a a mess. That’s our attic spare bedroom. Complete with paper shredder thank you Mr MFH. When we moved in, we went as far as removing the carpet and putting tongue and groove panelling on the walls. A massive obsession at the time, I vaguely recall. The room gets tidied when people come to stay, but otherwise it’s a forgotten land of old toys, books and other strange hoardings. Kind of like a big version of ‘the drawer’ my parents used to hide in their kitchen.
Soooo. I’m mood boarding up a plan of action, to include…
1. Some built-in cupboards in the nook behind where the desk currently is (moving the desk). So we can remove the ugly shelves. Something like above left (picture from Yatzer), hiding books inside and planking pretty things on top.
2. Putting some nice lighting in. Honestly, probably not as nice as this.
3. Going wild with herringbones, plaids and checks for rugs, cushions and blankets.
I still need to do a mood board for the cupboard fronts, but it’s the start of a winter project.
Anyone else feeling the need to change everything in their home? I worry this is the tip of the iceberg.
