I am Crystal.

And I am making this up as I go along – so here’s hoping there is some clarity to it!!

I grew up in the South East Suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. One weekend visiting my parents from university, I met a guy.

After a couple of years, we moved into a tiny unit in the beachside suburb of Chelsea:

After a year of feeling very cramped and needing space, we bought land and began to build a home in Cranbourne, Victoria.

We moved in July 2008 and threw our furniture from the old place together with a few hand me downs and settled in.

At the end of 2008, we got engaged

Our focus turned towards the wedding, which happened in June 2010.

We got a pet cat, called Vitamin

And I started to get restless with the state of the house, which you have seen in it’s current state here

And so this is The Before Shot. Chronicalling my purchases, home decor inspiration and the many mistakes I will make along the way. With the exception of building Ikea furniture with an Allen key and handy set of instructions, I have no idea what I am doing.

Hope you enjoy it!
