Wish list: May

Welcome to May’s wish list which centres around stand-out features within the home.may

High on my list this month is 1) Exposed brickwork. I love how incorporating exposed brick brings character and raw charm into an interior space. It mixes up the old and new and provides a real feature to any room. Here are a bunch of good examples that I have found on my trusted Pintrest site…

Our plan is to incorporate a brick wall feature at the far end of the kitchen where the family sitting area is, see below illustration. It should provide a real twist to the what will be a modern space. I hope you like it?Screen Shot 2016-05-28 at 19.17.58

Next on my list is 2) Cast Iron Radiators. As you all know, we had to to ditch our original plan of installing a ground source heat pump as our heating solution and have now opted for an LPG tank, which may I add (typing very excitingly…) has just been GRANTED by the council! Screenshot below…!

And finally, 3) Bold Wall Colours. I have more recently found a real love for dark painted walls, especially in tonal shades of grey. Farrow and Ball’s colour Plummet No.272 has particularly taken my fancy. I’m thinking of introducing this colour in to our formal sitting room to give a touch of sophistication and define it as a ‘grown-up’ space.
