We've moved!

We finally moved to our new home two weeks ago. We also had our own charity market "Little Keeper's Market" last weekend, so since we moved, we've been very busy, but now we have some time to sort things out around our new home and watch TV after Nico's gone to sleep...

Our linen cupboard isn't ready yet, so all my boxes with nuno and stitch products are in our spare room and there's no space to walk through there. To cut the costs, we asked the cabinet maker to cut all the boards for the shelves into the right size and Paul's dad and his sister are putting them together for us. Also in our lounge area, we have heaps of chairs and it still looks messy. We're making our dining table now so that all my collection of chairs can fit around the table (now we have 80 diameter round dining table and can accommodate only 4 chairs-we have 6 chairs! ).

So I wanted to take a little bit styled photo of our new home to show off to everyone, but all we can show you now is our messy home photo unfortunately:p we will need a little bit more time before we invite our friends over too.

This is our kitchen. The kitchen and the lounge were separated before and each room looked dark, but now with two big windows, it's much lighter! I really love this open space because I can see Nico and Paul playing while I'm cooking.  We love these square subway tiles and black kitchen handles. We love the colour of our bench top.

Nico's enjoying his brekky in our light filled lounge

This is our bathroom/laundry. Our basin is quite small so I'm using the kitchen sink for washing, but I like it because I can see Nico in the lounge while I'm doing the washing too! It's quite a small space, but not over crowded thanks to our designer Maria:-) we love the skylight!


Nico's room
This was the room with paint over wallpaper! Now it looks great:-) we love having carpet in bedrooms.

All our renovation went pretty well but we had some dramas just the day before moved in. I will write about it soon!

With love,
