First Concept for our Forever Home

The first concept for our renovation came through over the weekend. We were so excited to see the designs and be able to ‘walk through’ the building with the Graphisoft viewer. Our initial reaction to the first concepts was ‘wow’, we can’t wait to get started on this renovation.

Road Trip!


I’m not a ‘Mummy blogger’ (except that I am a Mum & I have a blog, but you know what I mean) nor am I a ‘Food blogger’ (except that I love food!) so this isn’t going to be a beautifully styled food post or a hilarious take on traveling with 2 kids. It is just a few of my fav recipes and some things I’ve done to try and save my sanity on our road trip up the coast of NSW.

I thought this was going to be hard, then I looked at the themes for 9 years – what the freak do you get when the theme is ‘willow’??! I guess I’ll have to figure that out next year.

Kitchen Mood Board #1

Bedroom style

I’ve got a few kitchen mood boards on the go at the moment. I’m calling this one Dark Scandi (totally creative!).

While whole scandi look of just white and timber really appeal to me, I can’t help but add a little colour even if it is just grey (with pops of gold).

Ikea Kitchen Hack #1 – Handles

I’m still changing my mind daily about the kitchen (dark, dual tone, scandi/white) but I do think we will go with an Ikea kitchen. Not only because I am still obsessed with how easy the kitchen planner is to use but because with a few simple hacks you’ll never know where the cupboards came from and if there is one things Ikea do well (there are heaps of things but this is the main one!) it’s storage!
