The Lounge Area

This is the area that we ‘hang out’ in.  I adore the space and I constantly
change it’s style.  Always adding lots of texture for the winter months.

 It’s a large space on the lower level of the house that looks out over the
pool area.  Our Kitchen, Dining and Lounge areas are all in this open

During the design phase before building the house, Mike knew one thing that
he definitely wanted …. Those massive, automated, electric sliding doors!
Combined these doors give us ten metres (nearly 33 feet) of unobstructed
viewing to outside.

Around and below the television we have some built in cabinetry and shelving.
Housed inside the cabinets are all the ‘workings’ for the television, DVD Player, Bose
sound system, DVR unit for the security cameras and a router access point for wi-fi.
Shelf space is always taken up with a changing array of fashion books, candles and
accent pieces.

 I’m very lucky with those that know me – If they’re ever in doubt as what to buy
me for a gift – Just make it a fashion book! I never get sick of looking at them!
But of course, Tom’s is my most favourite!

The very lovely Leeann from Elle & Elka spoils me so much!
Every time she comes to visit she comes with the most beautiful
gifts from her store! Leeann and her lifetime friend Evelyn own
a stunning boutique, and let me tell you, they sure have an eye
for beautiful fashion and home accessories! Below is their stunning
‘Pink Suede’ Candle.

I have a beautiful feature chair sitting to one side.  It’s gorgeous black
velvet with pop art cartoon fabric hiding on the back! I love the ‘quirk’
that this adds to the room.

We installed underfloor heating in this room.  It is wonderful!
We start heating the slab underneath in late May, so no cold toes
throughout winter! (And the cats love it! They are frequently
found stretched out just enjoying the warm!) But Harry loves
the comfort of the lounge!

This room still needs more artwork, and I do have my eye on some
more pieces from These Fine Walls, but for now, we’re happy just
lounging around!
