Thanks for the 'get up and go'...

Have you ever had a day where you have no 'get up and go'?
Today is one of those days. I have loads of things to do, but just can't be bothered...until I seen this home in one of my favourite places in NSW...the Southern Highlands. This home is filled with things I love. Take the outside for example - box hedges, neutrals with white, French doors, Lavender...
The inside also sports my favourites - natural matting, floorboards, ticking, the glass ball lamp, squishy sofas and loads of cushions to sink into. The colour of the walls is very similar to our own home. This photo has me thinking that now I really want to cover our other sofa in blue and white reverse though. What do you think??

Th kitchen is just a s beautiful. Tolix stools, roman blinds- which pick up the ticking on the sofa, wooden blinds, Hydrangeas, green apples in a white bowl. I could have shown you more as the list goes on, but you will have to buy a copy of Home Beautiful and see for yourself! to decorate now!

  1. Yes Ness,

    I've had days like that, and actually had three in a row last week...I think it was waiting for the plasterers to come and fix around our skylight, now they've been, am now waiting on the painters....Chow for now, going to go and clean me up some plaster dust before the kids get home from school!!


  2. Yes, but at least when you have no get up and probably do it with a cool accent! I did a wash on my walls in that buttery color too..after doing a plaster treatment over the original lumpy bumpy 100 year old stuff.
