    Maybe? Or we get the 'tuttemerul' from your load of tut. Either the chicken or the egg ;-)

    Ah is that where we get ' a load of tut from then'??

    Ha, yes, I can take lots of spaces very well, virtually. In real life I'm a bit of a minimalist. But I can see why others like lots of patterns and what we in the Netherlands call 'tuttemerul' (the smaller decorative items). Just can't deal with it in real life :-D

    Love it Carolina. Isn't it amazing how a potentially overpowering wallpaper instantly recedes depending what you put with it?! Really opening my eyes and taking me out of my comfort zone (virtually of course ๐Ÿคฃ)

    I went for a French/Oriental/eclectic bedroom

    I did think about that Minnie, I just not sure I'd use or want that in the room either to be honest. Perhaps I'll have a go though before shoving it in the loft (and hiding my shabby efforts from Patrina ) ๐Ÿคฃ Thanks for the idea ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    ๐Ÿ˜‚ you may as well take advantage of it and chill!

    would you consider turning it into a footstool? Maybe with a cushion as deep as the side and keep the wooden sides exposed so it just sits on top (somehow!) ? I know you can get foam cut to whatever shape so it may not be too hard (with Patrina's guidance!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ )

    See, just sitting there doing nothing ๐Ÿค” (a bit like me today!!)

    I've got a table very similar to this ( I bought in Dublin yrs ago) . I love it so am loathe to part with it but have never found a use/place for it since I moved to a house with rather small living room. Any ideas?

    This would be my inspiration, something similar to these images

    @minnie101 I love yours, my mood board would be very similar, Iโ€™d be inspired by Jim Thompsonโ€™s fabrics and interiors. This is very me.

    ๐Ÿ˜‚ it's a slippery slope!

    i think it's probably bad enough before ๐Ÿท although maybe I should have given him several ๐Ÿป before doing it!

    No of course not Minnie
    My other half asked me did I want a wine at 11am yesterday as I was loading the washing machine. I think he was joking but wouldn't like to say for certain?!! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜‚
    Might have been interesting to see how the haircut came out post beers though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Love it Jules and the piccollage is great!

    is it too early for a ๐Ÿฅƒ , I've just had to cut my husband's hair, nerve wracking was not the word ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Love those two so far. I just recommended teal and orange on another post re: a kitchen Minnie!!

    Ok so I don't like being left out and I've warned you I'm not very good at stuff like this, but I've had a go on pic collage. Still not sure about what think, was trying for bit of upskilling !

    Love it Rachel!

    I went for maximalism (Or attempted to!) ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I love it, Rachel :-) The boom made me laugh out loud. Karen will be pleased :-D


    I'll have a think about this challenge too, but I'm off to the garden now.

    Oh, and to make things easier all the products (except for the art) are from Maisons Du Monde ๐Ÿ™‚.

    Iโ€™ve missed loads of these design challenges and love doing this kind of thing. Iโ€™d be here all day tho if I did them all but thought Iโ€™d join in this one. Gone for a Californian style I think ๐Ÿค” and just for you Karen @OnePlan I put a mini explosion in ๐Ÿ˜„.

    I think this should come with a small explosion at then end - as in mission impossible !! ( unless you are Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen )
