Spring cleaning

Posted on Wed, 29 Aug 2012 by midcenturyjo

I have friends coming to visit tomorrow (I’m on a week’s rec leave) and it was definitely time to spring clean. You know what happens when you start to clean? You start to rearrange the furniture. Well I do. I needed a little change to my first floor landing. Something a little boho. Somewhere to curl up with the phone. This is what I came up with. I know, I know. I really should get that love seat upholstered not just draped with an ikat but I might change my mind by next week. I doubt it though. That retro couch looks good in Indonesian textile.

Of course only after I took the photos did I notice that one of the Vietnamese silk lampshades had collapsed. Better get the ladder out and fix that … if I can reach. Here’s what it looked like before.

But my office doesn’t look like that anymore. I started dragging furniture around in there after I finished the landing. Here’s a teaser. More to come later. I have a rug that needs cleaning … and some windows … and the verandah.
