Playing with paper and tape {kitchen renovation}

The last weekend of my summer holidays has arrived... And I am looking back at some great and very productive weeks. First there was Paris with lots of inspiration and good company. And I had a few days at the beach doing nothing but enjoying the sun as well.

The last three weeks have been really busy and I have been working really hard on putting ideas into action... I made that cute Parisian corner in my bedroom and meanwhile I stripped of all the remaining wallpaper in my home and started working on my kitchen plans. A big wall, and a small one, came down. Doorposts disappeared and slowly the 'loft look' I always imagined manifested itself.

I am still working very hard on it but it is great to see that in less then three weeks from the start I now can make plans on finishing things.Of course a bit of daydreaming is part of the fun, playing with paper (to imagine how that lamp of my dreams would look more or less) and tape (outlining the size of a table on the floor) Putting some art against the walls and creating little corners with touches of color. It is all part of getting to know my new kitchen before making major decisions on how to finish it. And great to getting towards the realization of my masterplan

Jeetje Dees, wat cool zeg die open ruimte!
Het lijkt wel of je huis ervoor gemaakt is om alle deuren en kozijnen weg te halen.

Prachtig wordt je huis toch .... steeds mooier en lichter en strakker en zo lekker 'eigen' .

Ik vind je slaapkamer met het metalen rek ook werkelijk super geworden, dit was toch waar je me over vertelde en wat gelast moest worden ?

Nou echt mooi hoor en origineel en daar hou ik van ...

Fijne zondag Dees !

lieve groet Gea

Don't dream of the big light - make it!

You could use wood strips used for basket making - soak in a bathtub of hot water with a little glycerin perhaps, then form them into the frame you want.
Here in the US we also could use #9 smooth wire from a farm store - heavy and stiff enough to hold the such a big shape.

Great pictures!

@eaststreet designer
I am dreaming about the light and have the intention to make it.. Excactly how you are telling I have the sticks at home and am trying it out Did not think about glycerin though would that make it less breakable?

Its a pity you have no adress! behind your name I would love to see your work !
