Well the designer behind it, Studiomama, aka Nina Tolstrup, also created this beautifully reconfigured beach hut that I fell for several years ago after seeing it in some book or a magazine. I'd remembered the what the place looked like, but as I couldn't remember where I'd seen it, was unable to find out who was behind it. Until last week... when, I was very happy to rediscover it through the warehouse story.
For the same reasons as the warehouse refit, I find it mesmerising: although I don't live in a minimal space like this (and am probably incapable of doing so) I have created some comparable nooks that make me very happy.
Here is a glimpse of my bedroom; this room was a very narrow single room – quite useless even as a spare room, as you could barely fit a single bed in it. So together with the ingenious builder, Andrea, who constructed it, and my friend Camilla who thought of the idea in the first place, I ended up with this compact mezzanine, which has made this room into a double by extending out of the room into the equally high-ceilinged landing beyond the door. (And if the ceiling hadn't suffered a rather nasty roof leak, the effects of which – big brown patches on the paint – weren't still visible, I'd show you some more snaps. The leak is now fixed, so when I've repainted, I shall.)
