Smiling boom boom.

"Also, white tvs tend to look shit whenever I've installed them."

totally disagree with this. people who have predominantly white rooms, why would you choose a black telly over a white one?

Because you barely see any of the white and the screen is always black…..of the 205 tv's on the Currys Website only 3 of them are white. So your choices are quite limited as well.

Another place I did in Notting Hill. Didn't get much pics of the AV, more of the house really.
I like how its modern, with vintage/old pieces thrown in here and there.

Needs a bigger tele…looks a bit lost. Also are they Sonos speakers?

Thats a 42", client didn't want bigger than that as he didn't want it to be the main feature.
Its not Sonos, its QTV2 by Q-Acoustics, pretty good for what it is actually.

on about TVs i watched a film with matthew mcconaughey -

he had a wall between his kitchen and living room (or bedroom) and the tv in a gap but could spin/rotate it round. so you could watch it in either room. looked good.

depends on your kitchen but I'd avoid choosing an extractor as a feature, looks totally tacky imo. Always prefer discreet designs that don't take over.

Helping my rents pick out some stuff for new place, they like mid century modern and danish a lot (with the rest of the world). Best places to go for vintage in London? Stuff needing repair etc is fine, are there any places to find bargains left?

get one that vents outside, otherwise it serves no usefull purpose except an expensive light.
get one that is easy to take apart to clean, nothing looks more vile than a grease encrusted extractor fan.

partially agree with this.
venting outside is better than in but filter ones work fine as long as filter is changed.

New generation of recirculation extractors from the likes of Falmec perform very well but cost £££££. I went for a Neff that vents outside and it does the job. You need to calculate the extraction rate required based on the size of your kitchen.
