Reluctant Restraint

When I first started blogging and commenced this build, I had a very clear image of how I wanted the interiors to look. Going back to THIS post of 2012, dark eclecticism stopped my heart!


 I think those stunning Chinese black and gold lacquer cabinets played a huge part in my adoration of this apartment and desire to replicate that here...


 So imagine my excitement when I discovered this beautiful piece on eBay...


Although the seller said pick-up only, she agreed I could obtain a courier to collect.
As it was such a substantial size (over 3 meters in length), I was hopeful that I would not have a huge amount of competition...



and it sold for a song...


I reluctantly decided not to bid.
Unusually for me, I showed some very rare restraint as, although it was a once in a life-time chance to own something of such beauty, the only spot I had to accommodate it was in the playroom.
As a television console! Sacrilege!

 I will probably kick myself forever for passing on this opportunity ...
