Inside could have been designed centuries ago. All the details would suggest to the disconcerting eye, that this home was a Castle in another life time. The iron Napoleon Bed is re used as the sofa and the vintage limestone fireplace cosies up to that stunningly simple cupboard.
The beaded board used here softens this formal staircase and gives it a sense of home, a well loved home. Viera, this is another for your Stair case collection.
This stunning chair (a favourite style of mine) has been left with the hessian on it and the owner has purposely left it uncovered for some texture along with the fabric inside the cupboards. We actually have alcoves on either sides of our fireplaces and, Mic if you are reading this, we could so do this!
An antique clothes rack looks the part in the Master bedroom, along with the hat box and steamer trunk. I still can't get over that this is a new build.
A little touch of whimsy with the child's camp chair and over sized scissors.
French File folders look like vintage linen and look fabulous on top of the vintage cupboard.
ahhh! The mannequin. I still have not found one..my search will never end! This just goes to show that new doesn't have to mean heartless. You can still create a masterpiece with just a few individual and quirky pieces that need not cost the earth. Look around your own home and see what other items you can put to use somewhere unexpected.

The lining room would be a very calm and relaxing spot after all that dish washing. More white (love the floors) and a nod to the nearby ocean with a shell perched amongst your cup of tea. The little display in the background on the old wooden piece breaks up the expanse of white.

This tile called 'Pear Script' has had a lot more views than I thought it would get, but there you go. I will be making a collection of these with other letters and fruits.
This is 'Quill Script', and another success with my little Camera I think. I can do custom and Wholesale orders. If you see something in the Tile collection that is sold, although they are one offs (being Handmade and all) I can make something very similar, but it will never be an exact....I like that though.
You can have a look at the rest here (there will be more soon).
Hope you like them, Ness xx
Our sweet little men, the light of our lives. My Family (including my MIL and FIL) with whom I wouldn't be grounded and I would have no values.
Our 2 ever faith full Border Collies...love them
and finally Tasmania...what a fabulous place to live.

After I seen her Kitchen makeover, I was questioning the Chalk White USA I wanted to paint our own Kitchen (the before shots look like my Kitchen at the moment). Now I am seriously thinking of doing it this lovely French Grey.

The indoors is just as divine. I love the doors, which are like my own and all of the little pieces that give this place a such a beautiful feel to it like the antique French dining chairs, urns and that lovely Chandelier. I don't quite know which is my favourite..I'm torn. Ness xx

Once again, this shot has given me something to ponder every time I am out on our back deck (which is quite large). I would love to enclose it with fly wire and some of those clear patio blinds and make it into and 'all weather room', which would be great for the boys...and entertaining. The whole scheme here I am in love with. It is just so relaxing, and I need some right about now.
Have a great day, Ness xx

Nearly everything in this home is recycled, or a reproduction find. This Fire screen is an antique re-fashioned as a decorative, yet useful feature in the Master Bedroom. I love that chair
Ooooh...be still my beating heart. This would usually be more red than I could cope with, but I have always loved Barn Red. Here in the Kitchen they have not one, but two islands (they have 6 kids). The red one with marble top is for pastry making. The other is a butcher topped one for prep and is filled with gumballs and the like to look like an old fashioned candy store (I think it would make a great shop counter). I just love this room. It is such a warm, inviting space.

The chair against the snowy white walls are lovely...and the drawers are a favourite.
Love everything about this room...floors, doors, table, chandelier...etc
Oh, and this divine chair (isn't a room, but I love it). I just thought I would sneak it in.
Anyway, my Computer tower is off at the Tech Doctors and I will have it back tomorrow. Thank God for my Mother-in-law's Computer. Ness xx

This one would do too. It is called 'Moonbed'...I love it. It would be great to sit in in Summer to watch the kids playing outside, but...
...if it got cold out, I would want one of these gorgeous quilts near by. I do love a bit of red here and there.
This bag with a French Bee on it is simple and stylish, and I bet it could fit all my baby paraphernalia in it too.
Last but not least I love this print called 'Come fly with me' that I bought recently from Carambatack at Etsy. It is so whimsical and I have always loved Alice in Wonderland. The original artwork is on a vintage page from the 1800's.
Anywho, I have made some progress on my Furniture purchases I told you about not long ago..and I will show you all as soon as they are done. Have a great day, Ness xx
