I've been seized with desire to redecorate...perhaps it's a feeling of release after looking after my aunt, and still visiting my father...anyway I've decided to attack what was my parents' bedroom. It has got quite shabby. Out will go the old furniture, paint work and carpet. In will come a new bed, new paintwork and seagrass flooring. I will keep the Ercol chair and the slightly kitsch chandelier. The built-in wardrobes, installed for my parents when we moved in, circa 1970, will have to remain unfortunately.
The seagrass is also moving into my bedroom, and the 'study'. I'll keep you posted.
