A creative havenPerhaps you joined us last month to see how Jrgen and Lonnie
are coming along with the remodel of the second f loor of their
home? They re taking a somewhat non-tradit ional approach as
Lonnie feels that putt ing in skyl ights wi l l ruin the beautiful , old
house. Shes come up with a number of alternative solut ions
instead to bring dayl ight into the rooms. This t ime were taking a
look into a room that s mirrored compared to the guest room that
was featured last month. One end of the second f loor has been
spl it into two rooms. The window under the cei l ing faces into the
other room. This room also has the same inf low of l ight from the
spacious landing thanks to a tal l , narrow window behind the door.
As in the rest of the house, the bui lding style is carr ied out with
secondhand bui lding materials wherever possible. Old windows,
doors and backbands real ly create a sense that this was part of
the house from the beginning. I t makes it real ly cozy. They found
the materials at secondhand bui lding yards and by staying in c lose
contact with various craftsmen that might come across old houses
that are being remodeled and from which the old parts would
otherwise have been s imply thrown out.
This room has now become the creative haven that Lonnie has
wanted for so long, a space for her to plan and prepare smal l
art ic les or make special i tems when decorating another room.
Having a place where you can gather up al l of your things and leave
them out for the duration of your work process is just wonderful .
When youre constantly coming up with so many ideas, i t s a lmost
a necessity. Previously this would take place at the dining table,
which was in no way pract ical .
At the moment, one project that Lonnie is working on is making
these del icate, handmade roses from various new and old fabrics.
They re just adorable, especial ly when displayed in the old box,
which was previously used for storing Christmas ornaments.
They re to be used for decoration or perhaps for an art ic le at some
point. This is one of the things that Lonnie loves to f iddle with in
the evening. Whereas others might do some sort of knitt ing or
needlework or watch TV, this is her haven.
Theres no color on the wal ls in this room but the furniture and
accessories do have some color. Lonnie
