No this is not Santa's grotto. This is our living room which must win some sort of prize for having crammed so many bold textures together into one little space. You are of course missing the full effect as Craig was that quick in ripping up the spirally carpets I hadn't even unpacked the camera. I'm sure the photo doesn't do it justice in showing off the sculpted walls. The artex has fairly been slapped on and it feels like being on the inside of a christmas cake. The fireplace is clad in sandstone and the look is completed by the orange pine ceiling. Strip lighting is the only light source concealed above the windows and the buzz is deafening. Speakers have been built into the walls and were hidden behind rather drab greeny brown curtains (quick to make their way to the skip). The previous owners built the house and no doubt would've been very proud of this look back in 1971, so much so they kept it forty years. We now need to decide what to do with it. I have to admit it is so wacky I almost like it!
