Reno wish list…

Reno wish list…

Renovating brings with it many challenges and frustrations. However it also brings a sense of excitement and wonder as your house becomes a blank canvas, ready for you to create your own masterpiece. Our ‘old’ house contained many furnishings that we love and cannot wait to re-home in the new spaces we are creating. We also, however, have had the chance to clear out the clutter and get rid of many things that we no longer want. This includes a white leather couch, and white dining table with chairs. We love white, but it does not mix well with toddlers and pets. Let’s just say we have learnt our lesson…

I’ve often said that I wish I could go back in time and get married in the ‘Pinterest’ era. Not to say that I would change anything, but being a Pinterest fan, I would have loved the chance to pin all of the amazing ideas and creations to my own board. The next best thing is being able to create my own ‘Renovation’ Pinterest board. This has been a great way to capture ideas, big or small, and store them in one place. I can also share the board with my husband, so our design can grow and we can literally be on the same page!

Here are some of the key ideas / design features we are hoping to incorporate into our renovation…

The window splashback….beautifully light and brings the outside in..

Whilst we live amongst the dust and dirt, we will keep our eye on the prize (and budget) and hope that some of these renovation dreams become a reality!
