OK, so this site is my notes, thoughts etc. as I scoop up ideas, inspiration etc. for the house project.
Spotted this and had to add it.
Wouldn’t this be great in at least one bathroom or over the downstairs loo sink ?
– maybe put up an empty picture frame with the text painted on the wall ?
OK, there are plans for bathroom mirrors, but how about mirrors to reflect the view ?
For example 1 or more mirrors on the south side of the living area or bedrooms that have a northward view over the sea and beach, so that when you look away from the sea, you get these reflected views of the sea.
In the living area, this could be a mirror on the corner post opposite the stairs +/or on the sliding door to the boot room.
With a half height wall between the bed and bathroom area for the 2 sea side bedrooms, the idea is for mirror(s) that are in this open space:
The above photo from the SketchUp model shows how you can see from the bed, back into the bathroom areas.
The current idea is mirrors that are on supports from above and below:
The sinks and storage will probably be different from the above mockup.
From in the bedroom, these can be mirrors on the other side, so that in the bedroom area, they are mirrors of the view out to the sky and sea:
Also in Kalk Bay, Cape Town (and a few other places in Cape Town) I saw tables like this one, where beach drift wood makes up the below glass texture.
It’d be nice to slowly collect driftwood from Perranporth beach and make one.
I saw these in an art gallery in Kalk Bay, Cape Town.
I like the idea of taking an old sheet of rusting metal. Chalk (or something) drawing on some shapes, cutting them out and then ending up with the cut outs to perhaps put in the house and the sheet with it’s holes put in the garden or some such.
Maybe dolphins, fish and flying fish ?
These “stick on” the garage door.
These stick over your garage door.
First a “customer pic of one” and then a few I liked:
Get some local graffiti artists to paint the door and wall ?
