I have been trying to take some better pictures now that normal life has resumed in the WH, but I'm just not very good at it. I am extremely pleased with my new teapot though- only Marks and Spencer, but unlike my Heals one I don't feel too frightened to use it.
The rescued dresser. I think I'm probably hankering after a country kitchen at heart, despite my glass and corian actual kitchen! We need yet more bookshelves so I can display more of our china.
I love roses - they're so retro, somehow, and unlike lots of flowers they seem to grow old gracefully - no pollen ( lilies) or incredibly stinky water ( glads) to deal with. Here they are in our hall with the gilt mirror I bought in Lewisham in 1996 and to which I am strangely attached, to my husband's bemusement. I've got an even bigger one which sits over the fireplace and which I think he's equally unkeen on!
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.
Our architect recently commissioned photographer Joel Knight to take some photos of the Worst House in its finished state. Have a look on his website at joelknightphotography (The Worst House is in a couple of pictures on his Architectural page under 'extensions'.)
You can also see some very scary photos of the Worst House under construction on our architect's site -architecture wk. (The Worst House is under selected projects/residential/Morley Road.)
And photographer Carl Pendle took some pictures of the Worst House in January for Real Homes Magazine - watch this space...
