IMG_5302

Is a hallway considered a room? Because if it is, our hallway is my favourite room in the house. I would happily sleep there, eat there and work there. It is beautiful. Let's recap. This is what our hallway use to look like... Charming, isn't it? This is what it looks like now... Soooo.... you wanna come live in my hallway? I kinda feel like I don't even need to write anything. The pictures speak for themselves. But since this is a blog, and not an Instagram account, I will … [Continue reading...]

New Kitchen Update: Part 1

IMG_0928

You Hellooo! I thought it was about high time I blogged about our new kitchen. This room has caused me WAY too much stress, so I've been loathe to write about it as it has taken up too much of my brain power already. The most frustrating part is that it shouldn't have been stressful. I new exactly what I wanted, had drawn up the plans perfectly and chosen all the finishes. But I picked the wrong kitchen company. I won't name names, but they were the WORST! When I first met with them, they … [Continue reading...]

The living room is soooo close to being finished. For old time sake, let me show you a photo of the living room from when we first bought the house 5 years ago. Pokey is an understatement. The walls were made of fibro, the french doors were rotting and the floor was made of cold, […]

Designing and Building a Staircase

Modern glass staircase

Since this is my first renovation, there are many things that completely over-whelm me. Designing a staircase being one of them. I feel I have a pretty good sense of what I like and don’t like, however when it came to designing a staircase, I felt completely out of my depth. I have since learned, […]

GIVEAWAY! The Best Kids Album Ever!

Booklet copy

I love writing and I love blogging. One of the best things about blogging is the freedom I have in writing about things I love, and things I think others will love too. Since becoming a mum earlier this year, many things have surprised me. One of the big ones has been how ingrained a […]

The Main Bathroom

Hi lovelies, Sorry it’s been a while between posts. The last few weeks have been really tough – I am only just managing to keep my head above water. But the good news is, I have come to one giant conclusion this month: Newborns and renovations do not mix!! This may seem like an obvious […]

Choosing Tiles for the Ensuite

IMG_0651

Choosing tiles has been one of the hardest decisions of our renovation. Once you choose tiles and have them installed, there is no going back. This makes it a very scary decision. Plus, it can be hard to picture what a particular tile will look like once it fills a wall. But we persevered and […]
