My room at the Ranch

after driving all around Kuwait City looking for a decent furniture store that would carry all what we need to furnish our one bedroom ranch house , my feet were swollen and my eyes were red and we came back home feeling so down.. , my husband would like a sofa , I would find it not "with in"my concept.. and when I find something.. he would think its not comfy or not suitable ..

so finally we decided on a modern sofa which I still feel that it doesnt fit into the "Ranch/Farm" environment , as modern sofas and modern designs would be associated with the "city "and everyday life .. while the ranch house idea is to get as far away from the hustle and the bustle of the city as possible!
The search is still on....

Tea ROOM with a Charm

Crown & Crumpet opened in the newly revamped Ghirardelli Square in the heart of old San Francisco in late September 2008. A destination tearoom known for top-quality food and excellent libations, all with the style and charm that one finds in modern day Britain. Crown & Crumpet infuses tradition with a large dose of panache and humor. There is no ‘Granny’s front parlor’ look for Crown & Crumpet. Renowned English architect and designer Roland Courtenay Bishop has created an architecturally inviting space with a creative interior d├ęcor designed by owners Christopher and Amy Dean. this is where I wanna be NOW !
