Although Louis' bedroom is nigh on done and dusted mine needs some work to make it cosy and welcoming. In spite of having white walls and bedding it looks gloomy. Perhaps when the eucalyptus tree in the garden gets the chop next month it will make a bit of difference but I'm not sure it's the entire solution. There's a thinking cap that's well and truly wedged on.
On the plus side I am loving my beautiful big brass bed and here's the bedside tables that I've bought. My old ones, storage type ones to go with my ill fated futon bed, looked dreadful. Far too modern to be a good match. They'll be used elsewhere in the house.
Sylvester Oxford, a bargain £99.50 for two. I'm really chuffed with them. Let me say that your'e not going to get craftsman quality at this price. The drawers action is far from smooth and there's not a dove-tail joint in sight. But I love the ornate fretwork and they are a really good fit with my vintage bed.
Here's the one on my side of the bed. Even though there's no-one here to share it with I haven't migrated to the middle! It holds heart shaped treasures from Louis and books. The drawers are handy for hiding away ugly charger cables. The lamp? Yes it's another yet find from George Home.
