I have lived in my nice comfortable family sized home for nearly 20 years and it has been a source of constant joy with very little to get me down. When our family moved into this house just as it was finished being built – the paint just about drying on the walls . . . we bought a lot of the scandinavian flatpack furniture that was so popular in that time. It served us well and I still have much of it dotted around. My joy though a couple of years ago was to refurnish my main dining room and all the bedrooms. I decided that a little more classic furniture with some style was needed to give my comfort an oomph. I chose oak furniture throughout – the colour varies on each piece and the feeling of warmth is wonderful. I particularly like the lighter oak – nothing oppressive or heavy about my stunningly beautiful sideboard.
