So the whole point in starting this blog was to have a way of keeping track of the work which we have done around our first home. I did a great job of keeping track during the beginning stages and have some beautiful kids posts BUT I have done a pretty shitty job at doing regular posts and I have just realized that the last photos I have of the main living area of our home posted in my blog have very little reflection of how our home looks now. That last post was the ‘before and during’ photos of the initial renovation work done which was a drastic change but looking back it was still so unfinished.
So I thought it was time to do the grand tour. After all the hard boring parts were done the fun part was about to begin where I started to find my style and start turning this empty canvas into our home. It didn’t happen over night which is why this post has been so long in the making but over the past 2 years I have discovered my personal taste and preferences when it comes to home decor and I have learnt so much about styling and decorating and truley found a passion I didn’t know I had.
So enough chit chat….Here it is!!

Looking out from the lounge across into our kitchen and dining area areas and the current outdoor covered area which we haven’t started work on yet. The island bench seating in the kitchen is my favourite part. The boys sit and eat there every day and I can potter away in the kitchen whilst they eat their dinner.
Looking out from the kitchen back to the lounge too is our TV area and the kids table and chairs.

Looking down the hall I have our most loved family photos on display in a black and white gallery wall. I went with white frames and mats to keep it subtle and un-intrusive as the hallway is a narrow space and I did not want to overpower it with dark frames or coloured photos.
