This is a sequel to my previous post, Repurposed & Upcycled Homewares On Etsy, which has had lots of positive feedback so without further ado here’s more of the same. I love putting posts like this together, the only drawback is trying to narrow down my choices from all the creative awesomeness 🙂

First of all, sincerest apologies to my faithful readers for the lack of posting here lately. I hope you’ll both forgive me :P.
Between my new job and all the learning of new stuff that it entails, and the absolute nightmare I’ve had trying to get a broadband connection at my new house, it’s been difficult to get online long enough to put a decent post together. So without further ado, here’s my latest installment of design inspiration…
I’ve decided to go for black walls in my living room, despite my concerned friends and family members’ pleas with me to reconsider (my counter-arguments: a) it will not make the room smaller. I was no physics whizz at school, but I have yet to come across paint that can physically alter the dimensions of a room. b) It’s my darn living room :P)
I had one black wall in my last house and I loved it, so I’ve decided to go for full on drama this time. It’s a small room, and the effect I’m going for is very cosy and den-like – I have so far got cream sofas and a pale grey floor, and will eventually have lots of art on the walls. I’d love to hear from anyone who has done this in their own home by the way.
(These are not all living rooms but humour me, it’s the visual impact I’m after)
I love this room on so many levels, everything about it – but especially the platform bed base. Drool…

I was very pleased when Ian Cremona contacted me with a link to a post about his living room, which he has furnished with handmade furniture made from repurposed wood pallets. I have to admit I just love it when people do this – I’ve just moved house and am trying to furnish and decorate on almost zero budget right now, so this is a real inspiration 🙂 I have a real soft spot for wood pallet furniture, but I haven’t been brave enough to attempt any so far, so thanks a million to Ian for sharing!
Wow. I reckon this is as close to my dream home as it’s possible to get. The 18th century Dutch barn converted by architect John Pawson is located in the Essex countryside and is currently for rent – see full details on The Modern House website.
