Inspiring Places

Hi Bill,

I live in a tiny room. I sleep, eat, read and surf the net in my little space. So i started wondering how i can transform it into a 'happy' room. Amazingly, i found relief in something as innocuous as an old painting i had buried away in some unused box.

I also re-organized my books, my table and a couple of chairs and the place looked bigger and more inviting.

Congratulations on seeing multifarious possibilities in an economy sized home. I have made myself a painting by taking books from the library, finding a flower picture I loved and then copied it by creating a paper mosaic by tearing up an old magazine. It makes you look at colours and not objects and it is amazing what you can achieve. Four in a row put up with prestik looks even better. A table top can be painted with plates and cutlery and a high tea already on it ! chairs can be made stripey just with a bit of masking tape and some tiny sample pots of enamel paint. I once read a book about a lady married to an artist. He couldnt afford to give her the gorgeous french furniture she craved so she came home from work one day to find he had painted all four walls of her room with beautiful things - sofas with cushions, tables and lamps, paintings, - I thought that was one of the sweetest things I had ever heard of. All it takes is to give your imagination a push and the magic carpet is yours. Have fun.
