More furniture

It's taking longer than I thought to put the finishing touches to the house, but I think you need to live in the place for a while before you can decide on furniture and accessories. We have a table and chairs on order, which should arrive around the first week in October. Until then, we don't want to put in anything more in the extension itself, for fear of cluttering it.

We got a nice chair for the computer desk. It's a low chair from Instore - it's a bit Austin Powerish, but it's quite comfortable and I like its wacky colour. We found however that the chair was marking the floor, so we've put in our sitting room rug under it. The shape of it is wrong - it should be longer and narrower - but the colours look lovely by our Traby shelf. So, I guess we'll have to go looking for a new rug now.

We still have to paint the bannister and get carpet for the stairs and landing, but there always seems to be something else to do. We'll get there eventually!
