Automobile-inspired home

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

I’ve seen parts of the car being recycled to become certain furniture for the house, for example, worn-out tyres with a piece of glass on it to become a coffee table. During my visit to the Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile (National Automobile Museum) in Turin recently, there was a very interesting motor home section where nearly everything in the house had a part of the car.

Past the entrance of the home, the first room is the foyer which opens up into the dining area…

I thought the toilet really interesting, especially the toilet bowl!

Look at the bathroom mirror frame!

The last room was the living room with a fireplace. Look at the things hanging on the wall – all of which are made out of car parts!

I thought some of the ideas were really creative and I think I’ve just been inspired…
