Going Up

We're recently been discussing the possibilities of going up over the garage.
Subject To Council Approval
I love dormer windows but the proportions have to be perfect or they look ridiculous.
They can't look like they've just been added, they need to look as if they've always been there
We have building height restrictions hence the STCA but maybe going up a little
and adding dormer windows is the answer!
Council wouldn't let us put a cupola on a proposed extension 
so, I doubt we'll be going up any time soon....

Dash & Albert Gypsy Rose

Personally, leather sofas aren't a favourite of mine.  Yes, I'll take a leather 
studded wingback in the office but not as a sofa - call me a snob 
it's just not my cup of tea.
But I must admit my brother has a Gypsy Rose woollen rug in his family room 
and sitting proudly on the rug is a burnt red leather sofa!
The combination of the red leather pulling the burnt reds out of the 
Dash & Albert Gypsy Rose, well, it simply looks stunning!
