May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

Should we do this?

A dilemma...

Should we open the wall between the kitchen and living room like this?

 Anne Turner

Or keep it like this?

The extra shelves are very handy and give the kitchen a cosy feel, but opening up that arch would mean extra light and spaciousness. Decisions, decisions...


  1. I saw open it up! The first photo looks great, even though it's not fully vintage to connect rooms. I'm always in favor of more light and air.

    The items on the shelves you'd be losing look small--can they be tucked elsewhere without too much trauma?

    Good luck!

  2. Thanks Karin! Yes, it shouldn't be too much of a drama to find somewhere for the bits and pieces on the shelves. We're leaning now towards opening it up, so thanks for weighing in :)
