My photos for Sandie's 5 in 5 were all taken in my home, showing my newly finished
hobby room playroom and the new purchases in the kitchen.
Actually, this room isn't completely finished as I still have to build an IKEA flat-pack table for the printer and assemble my new chair (once I've found a spanner!), but here's how it looks for now.
I sold the full size office desk and chose to have two smaller tables instead. It makes the room more versatile as I can keep them in the square that you see in the photo, or can join them along the shorter sides to make a long thin table for working on the family tree charts or for when I'm collating and filing the band music. I opted for the high gloss white finish as a reflective background for still life photos.
This is the first room I've added colour to. My original plan was to wait until the entire house was decorated and the basics in place before I started adding the colour and the homely bits but I fell in love with this rug ..... so changed my plan and bought it. I would have preferred it to be longer but unfortunately the longer ones were also much wider so would have been too big for the space.
Meet Larry the Lamb; he's a doorstop and lives in this room. I moved him away from the door to photograph him but he's back in his proper place now!
And this is Boris. He'll actually live in the spare bedroom when that is finished but for now I let him use my chair when I'm not working at the table. The berry coloured book is my brand new bullet journalling notebook and the spotty one is the one I'm using to write my morning papers (one of the elements of The Artist's Way course I'm doing).
It's downstairs for the final photo ..... to see my new salt and pepper pots (which are out of their cupboard home for the purposes of this photo) and the tea/sugar/coffee canisters, all bought on Sunday in The Range at Bristol.
Hope you enjoyed the look see. Thanks to Sandie for organising this link up.
