Followers of Lyn may note that recent photos of her house are a bit different - these are actually photos from some years ago, before she redecorated. While I love the new look, much more girly, I have a soft spot for this shanty-styling. There are no pictures on the walls, simply bits of typography, and the massive windows and non-perfect paint job make it warehouse-deluxe xThe house, or rather, converted garage has been pictured in many magazines. She definitely has a great eye for seeing the best in things.
This house is actually available for rent for photo shoots and parties! I must save up ...
But most importantly, she shares my love of old hospital furniture! Why I love it I honestly can't tell you ... having worked in some fairly dodgy hospitals I should hate the sight of it!I dream of uncovering some twin hospital beds under more stinky mattresses ... heaven. The red crosses and theatre lamps tie it all in beautifully.
Two of my most favourite pieces of furniture are a chipped and dented steel and glass surgical trolley that was a prop in a Salvo's store ... it was covered in wood veneer contact and only just fit in my car, but I rescued it and it is now being lovingly babysat by Kim as a bookshelf xx
My other great love is a surgical screen, the old 3 panelled moulded steel version that the doctor would pull around as he examined you. I bought it a few days before I was leaving for Timor, (I couldn't leave it in the shop!) and I had no idea where it would go, until I returned and moved into my loft. It was perfect for dividing the bedroom from the rest of the house - I must have known I would need it x
Thankyou to Taverne Agency for the photos
