Here are a couple of photographs of the sitting room showing the colour of the walls - am not too keen on the white radiator showing in one of the photos but you can at least see the contrast and the deep creamy colour shows up quite well - sort of like a dijon mustard but warmer and deeper... and it somehow just seems to 'work' especially with reds. (Actually maybe it just looks like bog standard Magnolia on second thoughts with my photography and the fact that outside it is beginning to get dark and the light is on too.... but I have tried - promise!)
The wing chair is such a treasured piece of furniture - I had it 'created' in Instanbul when Mr SE and I went on holiday there about 6 years ago... We went in to so many wonderful shops selling kilims and carpets and in one I asked whether they would be able to upholster a chair for me using a kilim.... Well, I picked out the kilim and sketched the shape of the chair I wanted and and after much bartering to and fro about the price it finally arrived back in UK a month after we returned from our holiday.
I was so delighted with the end result and it still gives me just as much pleasure to this day.


  1. Fab chair story - you were quite brave to barter for that and not know what would actually show up back home :)
    Your wall colour looks very soothing - in truth I have a really hard time making out different hues on my laptop screen; it's a pain in the neck and has led to some really unfortunate online purchases!!

  2. What a lovely place to sit and read. I love that colour paint. I had it in my living room with white molding. And, ooh, that chair is fantastic!

  3. Struggler - thank you, yes I was a little worried as having handed over the money and left the country guess he could have done a runner too! .....
    LBR - thank you for your comment and visiting the blog too... you are so welcome and nice to 'meet' a fellow 'Cord-lover' too!

  9. From what I have often heard and study teenage athletes could be okay with
    whey, creatine, and also other fundamental dietary supplements
    but ought to most likely keep away from some of the
    much more hard-core' supplements.

  10. Effectively, since Prof Hulk is among the iterations on the
    Hulk, it can be a viable opponent. Composite Superman
    could be a good opponent for Prof Hulk. I am not adding in
    any extra powers from other hero's in Marvel, gotta preserve it on thwe Hulk vs Superman with their own powers nothing borrowed! By no means forget that no matter what the madder Hulk will get, the stronger Hulk gets. He often seems to rise to the level of his opponent, hence The Maestro and Onslaught. And what happens when the Hulk ties composite Superman in an knot or anything (just fodder for that argument).
