Heard of the Pulsar lighting system? Well, this was our first time using it and wow were we impressed! The clever control panel lets you choose one colour or a mix of colours to suit your mood - see examples above. You can have all the lights on, some on, dim them or fade in and out. As you can probably guess, they are fairly expensive but worth every penny we think.
For those who have been asking us what wall paper we have used in the showroom. Well, it is from the David Oliver, Orchestration range and is available from Paint & Paper Library. They have a fabulous range of papers from various designers that will suit just about everyone's taste!
For me, there is nothing more comforting than a cosy kitchen warmed by the range oven. In years gone by, cast iron stoves would have been the only means of heat in the whole of the house, except for maybe a small coal fire in the back room. So with today's technology and modern appliances, why is the demand for them still so great?
No doubt, their charm and rusticity play a big part but more probable is the ever increasing cost of fuel. The range with it's multi purpose use for warmth, cooking, heating water and drying laundry, makes it a huge hit. I am told, having never owned one myself, that cooking on a range takes a bit of getting use to but most of the main brands offer cookery lessons.
Aga, Everhot, Rayburn and Redfyre are all popular makes and all offer a variety of sizes and colours - the one show here is a wood fuelled Esse in cream.
