The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

Almost there!

Looks like our contracts will finally be signed and things started in the next 2 weeks -finally!  Seems to have taken forever. We hope to have the site at least cut before Christmas and perhaps a start on the footings depending on whether the building permit is granted in time.  I haven't been too stressed as both Luke and I have been so busy with work and we now know that the house will be full steam ahead once all the builders and sub contractors are back from their holiday break come January 2014. The house should be finished by November 2014.  Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have some rather unexciting images of diggers and dirt  :)

With my photography business in overdrive at the moment I haven't had much time to gather inspiration for the house but did come across this lovely serene bedroom in this months Home Beautiful Magazine.  Just love the soft grey walls with contrast trims in white and the beautiful wallpaper.  I really miss having a big bedroom to retreat too - our rental bedroom is so tiny and so dark!



We have a beautiful bay window with a window bench seat in our plans.  All window furnishings on the front of the house will be white plantation shutters


                 An idea of these beautiful lights on each side of our bed or on the look out for                         some gorgeous new bedside table lamps

  1. Thanks for your opinion on what kind of exterior wood shutters should be nice to design my house. Where do I buy a shutter that's durable and stylish? I want it installed in my house through their handyman too.
