lately my mind has been dwelling on how we use our home. The space we have. It's function. It's aesthetic.
There are so many things that don't 'NEED' changing. For example, I have a perfectly nice kitchen, but I hate the bench tops and the oven and the layout and the cupboards and the....I could go on. I am crossing my fingers that the oven and stove will just stop working so I can then convince my other half that a change would be truly beneficial to the happiness of the house!!! hee hee.
But there are so many things that we both would like to adjust to make the house better for us all. It's either that, or we move.
One consideration is to change what is now our 'formal lounge and dining room' into a space that actually gets used. Like a studio and media room. I mean we just don't entertain formally. It is an ironing room, a sewing room and storage space for my husbands bike. All this amongst the "formal" table that we never dine at. I mean even the words formal and dine sound like something my mother could relate to.
We bought a lounge and chairs that neither of us really like, for the sake of filling the empty space.
So, I'm trying to imagine how the lounge would look as a studio. I'm not convinced it is the right thing yet, but loved these images below.
