Week99 - 1Sep 2003

This week, contrary to the plan, we decide to completely finish some downstairs areas:


First the downstairs hall:

With the hall floor complete...
I can fit the final stair spindles.

Soft Furnishing for Kitchen & Lounge

Bev has always been a fan of Laura Ashley. We therefore decided to make use of their design service. We chose the option of having 3 rooms designed for £200 - this is refunded if you spend over £2,000. We managed that with no problems!

We were impressed. Our personal designer (Mark Taylor) visited some months ago (when the rooms were a tip!) with a mass of samples and spent 3 hours with us. The plan he produced covered furniture, pictures, mirrors, lights curtains and blinds etc etc! We were under no obligation to buy any but in fact chose 90% of his recommendations. They have all started arriving so this week we decided to start fitting them...

The Kitchen

First the small kitchen windows...

The french doors have conventional curtains

The Lounge

Curtains for the small windows..
