Brownification of Chateau Macca continues apace.

by thesagittarian12 on June 28, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I call my home unit 'Chateau Macca'- 'chateau' being French for palace or mansion. The 'Macca' part is because 'Macca' is an Australian term of endearment for someone whose surname begins with 'Mac' or 'Mc'- which includes me. So, basically I'm saying that this is my little palace. 'Brownification' is the word I use to describe the brown theme I am pursuing with regards furnishing the unit- it really is THAT simple- or so you'd think.
