I failed miserably to find a favourite corner in our new home to enter John Gray’s competition. The entries were fascinating – so many characterful, eclectic, enticing and colourful corners from around the world. I could find nothing here to really compete.

I wanted to start with a clean slate and create something new but it is really hard to recreate character, I guess it will come in time.
The atrium style hallway in the centre of the bungalow is still not quite right. I love my new mirror and console table but the two tall buddhas make it look like an alter waiting for some sacrificial offering.
