I am starting off this week’s Friday’s Favourites with some photos from our new build (thanks for hanging in there with me!). This is the void at the top of the staircase which I have made into a window seat nook. It is such a bonus that this little space gets a great…(Read More)

This week’s decision for our new build was to choose a material for our front porch. Our builder generally uses Jarrah but I think the colour tones in this wood are too red against (what will be) our grey exterior. We decided that a decking timber that will eventually turn a weathered grey would…(Read More)
