Houses I Love

Spotted a fabulous article on this gorgeous house owned by Sharnel Dollar on the generalist blog today - The kitchen is to die for!  I think I first saw this house quite a few years ago in the Australian Womens Weekly mag and still have the images scrapbooked somewhere as inspiration when building our home

Read the article here The generalist - American Scrapbook




I also just adore this home too and this one of course was the inspiration behind my own kitchen design with white cabinetry, dark island, marble splashback and similar lights - love!

Dream House - Weeks 30-33

House build is going well and its exciting seeing it come together.  In the past few weeks cornices have gone up, tiling has been started in the 3 bathrooms and powder room, painters have started, verandah completed on front and back, travertine tiles around fireplace and wood heater installed plus our stone bench tops have been fitted - getting there!

Over the next 6-8 plus weeks alot more work will be completed so stay tuned for some updated images as we near completion  - I can't believe we are heading to the end already- cannot wait to call this beautiful house our home and settle in





Can't wait to see what she will look like with the final render colour and all the paintwork completed

House is so long it never can fit in one photo but this shows the studio entrance to the left.  Handmade round leadlight window will be installed this week

Looking huge from the back! 

Looking muddy and messy before it gets better -we have ALOT of garden design to complete!

Balustrade and stairs still to go on alfresco area
