I just clicked over to the Ikea site to look at their blinds and saw their new home picture.
It's incredibly similar to what I'm doing. The Moroccan tile I'm using as a splashback (ours is a light grey and white), the shaker cabinets (they're using grey, we're going with a white design), the timber bench tops and of course, the lights. I bought our lights at Ikea so this is not surprising, but they've got the exact same colours and sizes in the same places.
Apart from the fact that Ikea is clearly stealing my ideas (Ikea is actually most definitely not stealing my ideas), it's nice to see such a clear indicator of what we're moving towards.
On another note, the roof is now 100 percent finished and, with a storm brewing this weekend, should be up for its first test soon.
The electrician arrived to start work installing light fittings and, sadly, was not much of a pressed metal aficionado.
"Are you going to sheet over that?" He asked.
No, no we're not.
While I initially thought he'd drilled this hole in the wrong flower, it's actually correct but we do need to relocate one of the other light fittings.
That'll mean repairing the hole in one of these flowers. We may have to look at taking a cast of one of the flowers, fixing it to the damaged one and pouring a filler from the hole above.
If anyone has any other ideas for how to recreate the centre of a flower out of putty or similar, we're all ears!
