The actual before shot

13 Feb

Here is my house as it currently stands:

In 2007, I was living with my then boyfriend, now husband Veljko, in a very small unit in Chelsea. As much as we loved the location (200 metres from the beach, great public transport, very close to everything), we were getting sick of living on top of each other with no storage space.

I started house hunting, but couldn’t find anything I loved (now that I am older and wiser, there were one or two great homes that could have been fixer uppers, but I was very into new things then). Finally we decided to build. We bought a block of land and put a deposit down on a Henley home – The Carinya:


After a number of hiccups, we had our home, and here is some pictures:

View from front door:

The master bedroom – Take One (we have since bought a new bedroom suite. A post coming up on that soon)

The kitchen

The media/rumpus room

The study

The dining room

The lounge room


Can’t wait to make all the changes!!!

    It is fun to decorate a space to call it your own style.

      Decorating is definitely my favourite obsession – the hard part is trying to pick a style!
      Thanks for the comment!
