I renamed the "shoe cupboard" the "boot room" last weekend. I decided I was of an age where I should have a boot room. And to be fair we have boots and coats in the shoe cupboard. <<delusions of grandeur>>

<<realises is absolutely the biggest loser and leaves thread>>

LOL I know... I do have a lot of books in piles everywhere to even it out.

MaureenCognito Sat 13-Oct-12 18:27:02

i hear occasional bleats of "girlpower" muffled by the padded walls

MaureenCognito Sat 13-Oct-12 18:27:21

Lego room - brilliant.

We have a 'playroom', unfortunately we seem to have lost the lounge . . .

ggirl Sat 13-Oct-12 18:28:17

I need to go and make myself beautiful now
off to my ensuite or powder room

The dog splashes my skirtings...does that match rug spraying?

TheFallenMadonna Sat 13-Oct-12 18:29:47

I did wonder what happened to playroims as children grew, but from my extensive reading of 25 Beautiful Homes (blush), it seems it becomes a family room. Like a "sitting room" but with cheaper sofas and a "fun" rug...

I have two rooms with feature walls. biscuit !

I'm even thinking of adding another in the kitchen and updating my painted feature walls to papered ones, so what's the chew with that OP? Never realised it was MN no no.

I do not have a spice rack or a play room but wish I had both actually. Instead I have a wonkyly stacked cupboard and ds has a tv in bedroom blush I'm such a bad parent aren't I. DD has a nursery too.

I have naice ham and got rid of my twigs.

I have a spice rack (but, it hangs on the inside of a cupboard door and our kitchen is ridiculously small) - I only have 3 drawers, can't dedicate one to spices....

Guilty of feature walls. I like bright colours/bold patterns but my house doesn't have huge rooms so painting my entire lounge bright red would be hideous. So I have a red wall in the lounge, and one with stripey wallpaper in our bedroom. I like it [shrugs]

Poche smile same here

lego room is in the cellar
it's no good for anything else, but plastic doesn't go mouldy. Have to limit time ds spends down there, or he might.

Slight tangent but currently getting quotes for something to replace vile upvc conservatory - seems we now have to call them 'orangeries' I mean seriously - I just can not refer to it as that. I will be mocked cruelly by friends if I tell them to take their drinks through to the orangery - my house is 1950's not Downton.

PickledFanjoCat Sat 13-Oct-12 18:34:11

Oh that's hilaaaaassrious!

livingfortoday Sat 13-Oct-12 18:35:35

Mrs - orangeries a v naice. envy

ikigai Sat 13-Oct-12 18:36:44

No feature wall, no playroom. I keep my spices in the back of my cupboard in the shared kitchen.

So, to conclude, i win at this thread but lose at life.

I'll take that grin

Iteotwawki Sat 13-Oct-12 18:37:18

Yes, yes and yes.

The playroom is downstairs - it's a room full of toys, plastic tat in boxes, books etc where the boys hang out. What else should we call it? (everyone else locally calls them "rumpus rooms" but I'm not quite that native yet).

Feature walls - only in the boys' bedrooms.

Spice rack - in the pantry.

Twigs & pebbles - yes, but that's because the driveway isn't sealed yet. Hoping to stop tracking those in when it is.

Love my house smile
