Our kitchen

September 23, 2014

kitchen-1

A couple of people have been asking me to do a post on our kitchen and this morning whilst I was in there slurping down some ice-tea, I decided to whip out the old camera and do just that.

As you can see from all the photo evidence below I like kitchen stuff, glasses, jugs, jars, teacups, cookbooks, mixing bowls etc etc and luckily for us slash me, not Shane, I have lots of nice open shelves to display some of the stuff I have been collecting over the years.

So I hope you enjoy my kitchen tour, while I head on back to my baby bear who is in search of her own version of ice-tea.

Cool spaces

September 10, 2014

hans-1

Was looking around this blog today and I came across 2 homes that I think are just too cool. The first one is in Amsterdam and is filled with all sorts of souvenirs brought back from the owner’s worldwide travels. This little place is right up my alley, I love homes that are filled with memories and trinkets, a space that looks like it’s been lived in and enjoyed.

The 2nd one is located in Sweeden and it’s slightly less quirky, but still so nicely decorated with bits of modern and vintage touches. The kitchen is my most favourite part of this space. Nice nice nice.

I need to do another post on our home, haven’t showed you guys our bedroom yet. Yes, I will do that room next!

1 more sleep…

babies-nursery-1

Ok so the time has nearly come for Shane and I to meet our little love. Tomorrow is her big day and today I can’t seem to properly grasp that the time has finally arrived. I suspect that later tonight when we go to bed I’m going to have a bit of a moment and more than likely a cry (a good one), then tomorrow when we arrive at the hospital, I think that’s when it’s finally going to hit me in the face like giant hand or preferably something more pleasant, like a giant ice-cream sandwich. I’ve lived with her for the last 9 months, felt every single one of her movements for the last few months and imagined every single day what she’s going to look like and in less than 24 hours I’m going to meet her and touch her for the very first time and that is the craziest, most wonderful thought ever.

So we are all packed and ready to go and baby Durrant’s room is 98% ready for her, although I have no doubt she’s going to be sleeping right next to me in her new cam-cot so that I can monitor her every move for the first couple of months. but before I sign off for the next little while, for obvious reasons, I thought I would share her room with you.

Jersey Ice Cream Company

Jersey-Ice-Cream-Company-17

Came across this site called Jersey Ice Cream Company, who do the complete opposite of what their name suggests (already I like them). Now at first glance you would think that I was going to show you drool-worthy pictures of creamy, creamy ice-cream, but instead I’m going to show you the cool transformations that the 2 ladies who run this interior design studio have come up with. Yip, they take boring looking rooms and make them into something special and pretty damn awesome, according to me. Below are before and after shots of some of the spaces they have worked on. Love all the reclaimed wood and the idea of keeping some of the original textures in the room, like the exposed wallpaper, flooring, concrete walls and ceiling beams. Also love the black and white kitchen, if you’re looking for design inspiration for a non-traditional revamp, you’re going to like this post, but if beige tiles, off-white walls and anything tinged Tuscan is your thing, then rather give it a skip-a-roo.

Portland loft

June 23, 2014

loft in portland-11

This amazing loft is at the top of a one-story, nondescript industrial building located in Southeast, Portland. It’s an energy-efficient space and even though it’s very modern and clean, which is nothing like our home that we live in, I would move into this space in a heartbeat. It occupies the top floor, so it has a wraparound rooftop garden and windows for days. Sigh. So beautiful.
