Home tour – the living room

The home tour continues…  which somehow seems a little strange considering the Thankfifi Home is on the move.  But life has been hectic and we got some catching up to do.  So first things first, let’s finish this home tour.

The living room is open plan with our kitchen and such a great space to live and entertain in.  It’s a collection of things and a mixture of styles, from art pieces picked up on travels to the ol’ classic furniture and a whole lotta bluebellgray (naturally).  Other than the views over Kelvingrove Park my favourite thing is that fireplace – two years ago we painted the nasty varnish in matt white, poured a concrete hearth (yeah, I got concrete dog bowls to match) and filled the whole thing with logs – if I can’t have a real, open log fire, I might as well have the next best thing.  It transformed the focal point of the room and I love it.  I could tell you I didn’t have my removal men fill five boxes with those logs and lug them down the stairs…  but that’d be a lie.  Log love is real.

There are a whole lotta links and I tried to share them all but in an effort to be tidy I popped them all at the bottom of the post.  (But if you’re looking for logs you gotta go chop your own…).
