Furnishings for Great Room
I am creative. Anyone who is creative knows that there is quite a bit of clutter involved in it. In my workroom/studio is where it stays though. It is a constant battle but I prefer clean surfaces to display a rare find or beautiful artwork of glass or porcelain. I like the furniture to have simple elegant lines so that they allow the arts to show. But it all depends about where we live doesn't it? I've lived in a converted forge, a converted green house, in a modern apartment, in a craftsman home, in a contemporary beach house, in a converted bus. And our age is also a deciding factor. When I was 20-40 I had children so my style was decided by what I could afford to accommodate the clutter that comes with children. My forties were heavily influenced by Japan.

There's a lot of work to be done into making the current kitchen likable. Right now, the orange 20cm tile is making me crazy. Since we are leasing I don't want to replace the tile so have decided to cover it with either bead board or polymer clay tile mosaic. I am leaning towards the mosaic.
And these are for when all else fails.
I hope I can find these types of stools for the island bar. They are my first choice.
These come in as a close second to the first choice.
I really like the lighting under the easement of the cabinets and the island. I've always placed lighting on the top of cabinets that don't meet the ceiling and have never thought of also adding it under the counters and easements.
For the new sofa, change the pillows and throws to faux fur.
There is a window in the kitchen and I want to place plants in this type of planter arrangement there.
I hope I can find chairs similar to these.
Love this idea for hiding the tv and tv usage
Just slide it back when not in use
...and then you have a room that looks like you don't spend every waking moment staring at the boob-tube.
The magazine and newspaper bin
I like this shoe rack
