A stunning Autumnal day, that is so much more tolerable than the Summer humidity of February.
The photos came out well, so let me introduce you to the fourth bedroom here at Beach House Central. It has recently been converted into a media room, come play room, come study. The space in this cottage is constantly required to double, even quadruple up on different functions.
I can only reveal two sides of the room today. Opposite the couch, is a lovely old cupboard, which I intend painting white in the near future. It's bursting with kiddo stuff at the moment, so photographing that part of the room, would not be in the spirit of my kiddo free day.
I seem to have a map thing in lemon and blue, going on in the corner over there. Note to self: Remind Mr Beach House to bring his drill home from work.
After studying these shots, I think I need some more art work on the wall above the couch. This house is always a work in progress, so I'll have to shop the shed to see what I can find in blue.
The couch is a sofa bed. I guess this room's fourth function is the guest room.
I love that driftwood star.
Now, as we swing around to the adjacent wall we get the study part of the room.
This is a built in unit, that the oh so talented local builder, 'Shoulders' put together from my design. It is very compact with filing cabinets separated at the bottom. I'm not keen on the clunky nature of the four filing draws, stacked in the generic models I have had in the past.
I can display art work, books and object d'art in the cubes above. This little beauty is a space saver that covers all our study needs.
I couldn't resist a splash of red and orange as well.
And as you can see, I have found a home for that cute little vintage toy cash register I bought on Saturday at Lisa's Garage Sale.
Well blue and white lovers, until tomorrow then.
Yours in blue and white happiness
