Remember last year when I first met Fourat and she inspired me to set up my upstairs room? Well, I’m afraid that’s as far as I got with it and didn’t actually end up using the room for sewing. But it seems that Fourat is determined to keep inspiring me and during our catch up lunch yesterday (which was actually yet another birthday lunch!) she surprised me with a pair of lovely red linen placemats.
I immediately thought of the upstairs room with its happy red IKEA chair and bright red cupboard knobs and knew the placemats would look fabulous up there on the glass table, and also that, although I’m really not into sewing anymore, I’m still quite keen on breakfast. So this is now my new breakfast room.
Instead of sitting at my desk in the living room I can curl up in the comfy red chair upstairs with my coffee and iPad and enjoy the terrace view. And as soon as it gets warmer I can have the door and windows open or even sit outside. I’m already thinking of getting some proper terrace furniture and wondering if my orange tree (which is growing like crazy) will blossom this spring.
Thanks once again for the inspiration, Fourat!
