Room 38 – Bel’s ‘landscape’ room (Melbourne, Australia)
Not your average guest room. Bel’s ‘landscape room’ puts all those spare rooms out there to shame!
Most of Bel’s landscapes have been collected over the years from various vintage stores and op shops.
This lovely plate adds a great hit of blue to the wall and is one of Bel’s favourite pieces on the wall. Gotta love those $2 shop finds!
Bel has a soft spot for the bird on top that’s decided to go against the grain. Apart from being a little difficult to rectify, as it hangs so high, Bel likes the fact that he’s ‘doing his own thing’.
Bel bought the Astor TV unit a few years ago on ebay for a cool $25.”It was so heavy to get in the car I nearly broke something!”
The glass bowl was gifted to Bel’s partner, Rachel by a colleague who knew that she liked ‘ugly glass’.
The red apple is right at home on the TV unit. “We probably paid way too much for this at a second hand place in the inner suburbs, but I think it works well in the room, even though it’s an ice bucket.”
Bel’s partner brought this chair back to life by stripping the timber and re-upholstering, extending the life of this classic piece.
This picture, reminiscent of a North American landscape, is another favourite of Bel’s. “I like the coldness in this picture”.
