A peek into our home - The Living Room & Main Bedroom.

Our new house, freshly painted and with new window furnishings (by A Curtains & Blinds) … styled to suit us ‘for now’ renovations are in the planning process. We are so happy with our little abode and enjoying making it our own.

I am a big believer of purchasing furniture ‘for life’ not ‘for now’ … so most pieces you will recognise from our unit. There’s a new dining table (for the breakfast nook, when we renovate the kitchen’) by Coco Republic … and chest of drawers in our main bedroom from West Elm.


The Living Room

I’ve currently got our ‘rocking chair’ in the living room, while I’m deep in the ‘new born’ stage, feeding constantly … but it will go Aurora’s room in a few weeks and our ‘Paulistano leather chairs’ from Orson & Blake will come back into the living room. The living room will have parquetry style wooden flooring when we do the renovations, and then I will put our large blue rug from West Elm back in the living room.

I’m obsessed with the large ‘rubber plant’ I scored from Bunnings after being inspired by the giant one in Alex Bennett’s home … I’m trying to keep it looking it’s best (but I am no green thumb, so wish me luck).

The ‘stair rail’ is super wide, wide enough that Cash could fit through the wooden posts and fall down, so we are still undecided what we are going to do about it and have a ‘mesh’ up for safety for now.
