Inside my home – The lounge

Hi! Come in, come in. Come through to my lounge. Take a seat. Can I make you a cuppa? :) A couple of weeks ago I showed you inside my guest room/office. Today its the living area. Although it isn't where I'm supposed to be working (given such a great office) it is where I spend most of my time. I love this room! A lovely open space with white walls, an awesome couch and sliding glass doors that let the sun pour in. There is a great view of our courtyard and easy access to the open plan kitchen, which I will show you soon enough. Also easy on the eyes is the lounge chair that I found at...

Somewhere that I used to live

So, I've done it. I've made the move to Melbourne! But all this packaging and digging out coats and scarves has made me reminisce of days in London.

While I would LOVE to find a converted warehouse with original brick walls or a loft apartment with a wall full of windows, I am trying to be realistic and only setting a few guidelines for my ideal...

Australian Home

About a year ago, I threw caution to the wind and became somewhat of a drifter. Ever since, I have had more opportunities to live in some amazing temporary dwellings, than I ever would have dreamed of! The latest abode-tunity leads me to pinch myself, as I have everything a girl could ever want including wood panelling, tasteful decorating, a lovable black Labrador called 'Darrell' and even a kitchen sink (the last place I lived in didn't actually have one.) And best of all, the house owner actually thinks I'm doing her a favour by house-sitting! This beautiful house in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane reminds me a lot of the Queenslander I grew up in from it's front bedrooms with French...
