Since receiving our planning approval for our new extension a couple of weeks ago my husband and I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest looking for ideas for our new space.  We are both huge fans of the open living/kitchen/dining space and this is a look we are wanting to create.  With two little boys who will undoubtably be spending a lot of time in the garden as they grow older we really want to make this back room the heart of our home.
