I don’t know about you but I am a huge fan of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ show “Fixer Upper”. If you watch the show you will no doubt have heard the term ‘shiplap’ used on many occasions. Joanna loves it and uses it in many different ways in nearly every house makeover. It has…(Read More)

Ahhhh…..is it too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year? I know it has been a while between blogposts (thanks so much to those who are still hanging in there!) but I wanted to start off 2019 with a topic close to my heart…..wall lights (or wall sconces as they are often…(Read More)

A Coastal Dream Home

Happy (belated!) New Year everyone. I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable festive season. I spent a great summer at the beach, spending quality time with my family and catching up with friends.

‘Tis The Season

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again. In saying that though, it couldn’t come quick enough. I have been really excited to decorate our home for its first Christmas. It’s crazy but our faux fir staircase garland was one of the very first things I bought for the house…(Read More)

Last week I shared the start of the stone work on our chimney. What a difference a week has made. The ‘jigsaw puzzle’ is almost finished and our landscapers (VDB Gardens) have done a wonderful job. Unfortunately for them, there are still some retaining walls out the back to clad. I’m sure they will…(Read More)

I certainly haven’t ditched my love affair with Hamptons-style homes, but another style of home has appeared on my radar….The Modern Farmhouse. It is essentially a mix of Hamptons that is modernised with a Scandi/Industrial influence. These homes are perfectly suited to a larger block or rural property. The exterior of…(Read More)

There has been a bit of action with our new build this week! The slab for the garage has been poured and the stumps for the house are in. Because the block is on a slope, building on stumps was a better option. It is exciting being able to see the footprint of the house…(Read More)
