New project

Great meeting this morning for latest design project , large welsh farmhouse, still at planning stage , its one of the most enjoyable parts as we hav a chance to nail the small stuff such as electric socket positioning and proposed furniture layouts, this mornings varied discussion inc which room will be the guest bedroom , how big the pantry needs to be and where will the ironing get done! Plus a whole lot of homework for my design customer on how she uses her current kitchen .

Seld makeover
Our latest house move has prompted another reincarnation of our beloved Seld . Its now well over 20 years old and has transformed from a Seventies bare pine dresser to the kids toy storage to kitchen storage (twice over the years) to dining room display, to shop display in our Aberdyfi shop for a few years. We then added an extra shelf to hold all the cd’s and its latest use is holding all our vinyl as well as cd’s. its been painted white, green , dark blue , light grey , cream - the latest paint colour is Little Greene’s Lamp Black. The great thing about dark paint colours is that it hides a multitude of sins , so even though a close inspection of our seld will reveal how ropey some bits are , all of this magically disappears when you use a dark colour , honestly , try it!

The seld has had yet another makeover! Little greene paint - black jack on this occasion

House move - Symud ty

Our lovely Maggie has been hassling me(quite rightly!) to update the blog for a while but we have been busy moving house
( a great excuse).
Anyway, as I can’t get my head around anything of interest -I thought I’d show you how quickly you can make a place your home.
As the guy who bought our house also bought everything in it bar a few paintings and the trusty old record shelves that my dad made all those years ago , we have had to make do with anything we could find. At least, our lock up is a lot emptier and all those chairs I have amassed over the years and never got around to recovering are finally being used (maybe gareth will let me start buying some more …)
here’s how its looking a week later - please bear in mind , theres still a lot of work to do including transforming most of the pieces but I will try and update the blog as we progress.

Mae Maggie wedi bod yn poeni fi am ddiweddaru’r blog ers ache ( da iawn ti Maggie!) ond roeddwn rhy brysur yn symud ty,
Wedi methu meddwl am ddim o ddiddordeb bore ‘ma felly dyma rhai llunie o’n cartref newydd , wedi ei ddodrenu gyda hen eitemau sbar sydd heb ei adnewyddu eto.
Wnaf obeithio dangos sut mae pethe’n datblygu dros y misoedd nesaf.
