I've always been fascinated by people who live in converted spaces. I'm not talking about the boring 'indstrial loft' fad either. Old stores, churches, banks, libraries, schools; Something a little more gracious than a factory with exposed ugliness (admit it, thats what it is). I think it started as a child with the BF Jones library that I mentioned in an earlier post HERE. I imagined the purpose of each room and how I would decorate them. Where would YOU like to live?
'You'd be so nice to come home too'...........interior from domino - looks like a converted schoolroom to methe possibilities of an amazing here at the ringling museum of art entrance
it's lofty -but not INDUSTRIAL an old store perhaps? just make yourself at home!

Well, the Ringling WAS his home, was it not?

This is what they do in England all the time - we just don't here - put up something new, it's so much better. ha!
