A Frame Of Mind

It’s a fact that when our vision is obscured or blurred in anyway, it greatly affects our moods; a crack in the glass, a foggy road, a big hairdo in the seat in front of you at the cinema. These things not only irritate and annoy but can really shift our frame of mind. So, when choosing a beautiful painting or photograph of a landscape to hang in your home, you’d certainly want the image framed allowing a perfectly clear view of the piece, unobscured and unbroken so that you can gaze and admire the artwork freely.

Flexible Family Living

Space is always an issue in our homes, especially for a growing family. Our living areas can feel very overcrowded and once our children get bigger and families expand, our homes can feel very small. If our weather were more reliable with longer summers similar to the Mediterranean, then outdoor life would support the need for more space, and our gardens and back yards would then act as an extra room. However, even with the amazing heatwave we’ve enjoyed this year, the evenings have more often than not been too cool to stay outdoors, and with the onset of autumn and sporadic showers, it can be very demoralising to set up all your garden furniture only to have to dismantle and abandon it at a moment’s notice.
