As some of you may know we are flat out with the restoration of our new (old) home and i am constantly going through my files for ideas and inspiration; so i thought i would share some of them with you.
Love this kitchen for its rustic beauty.
What a great size island for working and entertaining around; i am afraid i will not have the room.....a galley kitchen for me.
This picnic getaway could be on the cards....feeling like i need a break.
Maybe even a French holiday stay....not likely. But guess what, everyone is entitled to dream!

Loving Rustic and quirky

Just lately i have been even more attracted to anything rustic and quirky. This old leather chair has been beautifully finished off with these great cushions.

Check out the size of this shoe last; under the side table....its huge. What a wonderful eclectic mix of bits and pieces. Have a great day.....see you soon.

More stock...and more on its way...

These are our new little birds on balls; nice for decoration inside or out of the home.
Birdcages are great for inside or outside as well....these would look lovely on or hanging over an outside table with lots of candles in them.
Our wooden pears......much lighter than the marble ones.
The recycled elm coffee table and benches are new to the store.
These bird wall plaque are just gorgeous...have a great weekend.x

More inspiration...

I think pots and greenery always add an element of freshness, and is nice when the doors are opened to see them there. With the new renovations going on i am considering what type of pots to put where.
This bedroom is so airy and light; gorgeous.
Love the single pendant lights hanging down over the bench tops.
Bathrooms are very much on my mind as choosing the right bath for the space and tap ware has all been finalised and are on their way............these pictures have very much influenced my decisions.
Love this contemporary sofa, especially with the vintage dress forms and apple pickers ladder in the background.

Linen and black are definitely on the cards for the renovation.
This bath is almost identical to the one installing in the upstairs bathroom; hopefully its on its way. We have also chosen taps that stand on legs and come up from the floor.
We are also having shutters in a few windows of the these....Take care x

photos of home.....

The kitchen cupboards are all timber with a cream paint finish; the bench tops are pine.
One of the upstairs bedrooms....
Our lounge room with stone flags on the floor. The ceiling is vaulted so when the heat rises it circulates and tunnels through the whole house.
From the entrance gates to the garden area looking at Western porch area.
The self-contained barn.
Seeing our home is soon to go on the open market i thought i would share some photos with you. This photo is looking from the dining room into the kitchen and scullery which has an underground cellar.
This shot is from the kitchen looking into the hallway. The staircase is all recycled blackwood.
This shot from down in the valley looks at the Eastern side of the house. The bricks on the outside are all recycled old bricks that have been washed in a lime paint. The garden is surrounded by a drystone wall. All the gates are made from recycled hardwood.
An early morning shot looking through into our bush; i love this shot and will miss these mornings here.
Looking across the dam towards the terrace and entertaining area . I hope you enjoy these shots and if you know of anyone looking for a lifestyle property in Tasmania or simply a green change give me an email.
