I’ve never owned my own house. It’s probably a good thing if my attitude to car maintenance is anything to go by. (Think strategically placed satsuma, covering engine warning light.)
Sometimes though I do think about what I might do if I was lady of my own manor. Obviously the first thing I would do would be to install a secret door, disguised as a bookcase, but that’s a given. I’d have a spiral staircase too, and big floor to ceiling windows, looking out on one side over London and on the other over the French coast. (This is a fantasy remember.)I would also have a library, and a home cinema, decked out in a plush, purple velvet.
The reality of course would be that I’d be happy just to have matching crockery and a full set of working light bulbs, but a girl can dream.
One thing I would really love is a decent conservatory. We’ve been without our own garden now for a year and I really miss being able to throw open the doors to let the outside in. Windows are one thing, but being able to step out from your house into a garden, no matter how small, is something you don’t appreciate how much you will miss until you don’t have it any more.
Without a garden or back door, the light in a house changes too. I’d love to sit in a conservatory, casually sipping a gin and tonic perhaps, with the sun warming the air around me and the sounds and smells of the garden filling the room. I imagine my conservatory would be full of plants, creating my very own little tropical paradise.
Perhaps I would turn my conservatory into a bright and spacious office. Every half an hour or so I would take a well-earned break and have a little lie down in the garden amongst the roses.
Or how about a conservatory with a pool?? Can you even imagine? I’d have to learn how to swim first of course, or perhaps I could just get one of those floating sun loungers that has a built in space to hold your cocktail glass while you drift lazily around the pool? The warmth through those windows would just be divine.
