These pics are taken in our (DBF and mine) living / dining / hobby room and office (all in one). It is really a place I call home, for I feel at home when I’m there. It’s peaceful and quiet. It’s nice, it’s decorated like we wanted it. We did a lot of work in this room… Although it was DBF who did most of it, since I wasn’t there most of the time. We chose the colours together and he painted it all (after removing the old wallpaper), my lovely MIL did the stencil edge. We chosed the furniture and the distribution, and assembled most of it together. The red couch is our last acquisition :) It is really our little home.. Until we get our real home.
(Note: DBF took these pics, as I only had the idea once I had already left Belgium. All the credit goes to him. I just selected and made the collage.)
