Ohhh looky here, the stainless steel wire for the reading nook has been installed and the balustrades have been varnished! I'm loving the look of the combination.
As the walls are all cool Dulux "White on White", I wanted a timber floor with warmth and depth to balance out the sterility and crispness of the walls so chose Kwila, which has more reddish browns.
I love the clasps for the stainless steel wire too, they're slimline and subtle. I would have loved to have glass but it was way too expensive. A little reading chair and table with lamp is all this needs now!
