Summer is here!

Yay! The warm weather is coming! And with it brings, fun, xmas, parties and late nights.. Though not sure there will be much partying going on this year with now 2 kids in tow! It is my favourite part of the year when we get to wind down and look back on the amazing things we have achieved both in our business and as a family and where we start to look towards to the new year and the amazing and exciting opportunities that may come our way.

Our house plans are slowly moving forward, our architect is busily working with the engineer getting everything signed off structurally before we submit to council, which should (hopefully!) ensure the smooth sailing of our application to build. I will be one excited lady once we get that final tick of approval from council. I can't wait until the 1st of Jan so i can finally say we are going to build THIS year - omg super duper excited!

The pics below really shows where we are heading. Our kitchen is entirely black - including the tap ware - it is certainly going to be a statement! My dreams are filled of cooking and entertaining in this space!

concrete floors, floor to ceiling glass, open fireplaces & crisp white plaster work with recessed lighting!

all black kitchen! Everything hidden - can't wait to see this finished
Little Miss M's room is nearly finished - well in my mind it is!! Wallpaper is finalised and beaded light fitting has been purchased. It is definately not a 'girly pink' room, but hopefully something that she loves and keeps for many many years to come!

This xmas break whilst our business is quite will see me spend quite a bit of time in Melbourne sourcing finishes, fixtures and finalising furniture pieces. For be past 10 years we have held off purchasing furniture so the only thing we are taking to our new home will be 3 x original bentwood dining chairs which i have restored - everything else is going to be new!! Though hopefully it doesn't feel too much like a furniture showroom, i am hoping i can throw a few vintage pieces in there which will soften and make it feel a bit more homey!

Yep, totally excited about the new year - it is going to be huge. No doubt lots of challenges, but wow there will be some huge highs too!

Have a great weekend..
