O.k. so I am officially the worst blogger in the world. So please excuse my lack of posts.
We have part way completed decorating a few rooms to we want them to look like but some still remain frustratingly incomplete, my search for the perfect lounge suite is still ongoing and even the two feature chairs we recently purchased may still end up in the bedroom (who knows) because I feel they need to be patterned, but I thought I would at least post a few pockets of what we have done so far.
It hasn’t been as easy a process as I first thought as I am trying to give it a lived in feel by using both new and old pieces. Wall art seems to be my downfall as the wall spaces to fill are so large I am still pondering what to do with some so any suggestions would be great 🙂
I will post what I have so far, let me know what you think xx

This what I consider the fun stuff. Tile selections and door profile decisions are my idea fun.
We have engaged The Kitchen Factory Malaga to make the kitchen and bathroom cabinets as I saw some of their previous work in a kitchen magazine and after meeting with them had a good feeling.
I must say that tiles were a major drama trying to fit what I had in my minds eye with what was available at tile shops around Perth, it wasn’t impossible but the selection available tends to be more on the modern side. We have settled on Prestige Tiles in Osborne Parkas we dealt with them in the past and they always do us a good deal.
There are a few things I wanted in this house that aren’t yet that popular or readily available in Australia.
Bathroom wall sconces was one of these things, I had to order mine from the U.S. and they will have to have some re-wiring of some sort doing to them by the sparky.
We are also going for a dado height wall panelling in some of the bathrooms and this has caused more than a few raised eyebrows when we try to explain the look we are going for to people.
Below are a few photo’s of some of the looks that we trying to achieve, the kitchen is almost exactly what we are having and the bathroom ones are just so you can get an idea of the style we are going for.
