Crazy For Kitchens

Four very ,very cute kitchens...

I adore this shade of green in the first kitchen

and lots of natural light. There can never be enough

Personal touches and great counter space below 

plus of course pressed metal ceiling molds and sensational lighting

First Impressions

I have finally selected the material for the blinds in the living room/ dining/ kitchen. That was a tough choice but I love what I have chosen. They should be ready in a month and the the old air conditioning unit in the main window has been removed and the window repaired. Pics to follow soon.

Project front door has commenced. HD has started fixing the front weatherboards that needed replacing and we are choosing exterior colors. 

We have the original 1940's front door in our garage that I would like to clean up and put back. The door has a laced iron fly screen. My 85 year old neighbour had it in her garage for years. A previous owner of this house gave it to her husband and she returned it to us. It's very beautiful.

Pretty in Pink

I was watching a recent home renovation program where the family in the three bedroom house had the two children share a room and the third bedroom then became a play room. I really like the idea, however not too sure I can sacrifice my daughters very pink bedroom

Blinds, Borders and Fabric

Some ideas for my kitchen and living room windows. I'm finding it tricky to decide what window dressing to use because it's such a large space with so many windows. I'd love to use a pretty floral in the kitchen and something sleek and sophisticated in the living/ dining room, but I want it keep it cohesive. Too many gorgeous choices.

Navy Blue and White Striped Floor Rug

Welcome to my current fixation...striped rugs. 

 Only problem I can't seem to find one large enough and just right.

I love the mix here of block blue, stripes and floral.

Apparently those who prefer navy as their favorite color are conservative and boring.

I beg to differ!
