The Perfect Home Cinema

So during our renovation, as with most projects of this size, things took longer than expected and cost more money than budgeted…not too much more as I’m a spreadsheet queen, but enough to make us watch the pennies for a little while. So the finishing touches have been put on hold, the finessing and the fine-tuning of most of the rooms. In fact, it was really only the new open plan living space and kitchen and main bathroom that was 90% complete, which was intentional, as we knew this would be the space we’d spend all our time in…and we were right!

With the hubby into his technology and gadgets and being that we now live out of this new space, we chill, eat, drink, work, cook and play from this living space and guess what? We watch a lot of telly from the space too! So one thing we did treat ourselves too, was a new television and home cinema set-up. Continue reading

Our Blue Kitchen – A House Project Update

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything about our home renovation on here, mainly because we’ve been busy in Italy and with work and certainly not because the work has stopped! In fact, 6 months into our total home renovation, we’ve still got plenty of work to do! But one of the spaces that is 95% complete is our lovely blue kitchen.

So I thought now would be a good time to reveal the new look of our kitchen space and talk a little bit about how we got there and which suppliers and brands we’ve used. So grab a cuppa, put the House & Garden magazine down and have a read…

Home Trends I’m Loving

It feels like we’ve been “nearing the end” of our renovation for months now. The project has only run over by a few weeks in fact and we’ve not been rushing it, as we’ve had our current house to sell and a lot of work on!

Because we are finishing the renovation ourselves (ie. painting, decorating, styling), we also wanted to make sure we didn’t make any rushed decisions that we’d end up wanting to change in a few month’s time.

So I’ve been looking to interior and home magazines, blogs and good old Pinterest, for home trends that I can take inspiration from. We both have an electic sense of style, but one thing we both agree on, is that we want to create a sense of space in our new home and not clutter it with random things that we don’t really need.

Storage will be key! We don’t really want anything on show that we don’t like looking at!

Well that’s the theory anyway. So a few home trends that I’m loving are…
