The Green Room Snug
Throughout the entire restoration process the back panel has been off to help with access to hidden areas. This was the view from the back of the house before it was replaced. I love this little sitting area in the corner, but now the house is on it will never be seen again. It is indicative of the way this how has dictated its terms to me. It was so very tempting not to bother with this area because it would never be seen again, but it was crying out for a little secret.

It looks fabulous with the pannelling and the lovely wallpaper. I have a dentists' mirror, you know the ones with the angled head on a long handle that they use to look around your mouth? It would be useful here for when you want to have a peep or show someone this little snug. I got mine on the tool stall at a DH fair, though at the time I bought it to be able to see the dial on my hot water tank which someone had helpfully installed back to front - but that's another story...

It was from DHE in the sale. I loved it as soon as I saw it.

Another gorgeous - and perfect for the setting - wallpaper. Love the blind.

LED lights are improving all the time.

I love these lights, particularly the amber ones which I look for now in preference to the white lights as I think they give such a cosy glow. I have found though that painting the white bulbs with orange glass paint works well.

The battery lights photograph well.
