Interior Inspiration

This morning my heart skipped a beat when I stumbled across this amazing home on Pinterest. I simply had to share it here with you - this truly reflects my style at the moment and if I could, I would move right in and not change a thing (for a little while at least).

There are certainly elements in this home that I can use as inspiration for my own space - despite not having beautiful white floors, TineK products at my disposal 
and a general lack of funds due to our big move.

Want to come along on this little tour?

I have my eye on a moroccan tray table like this one - the challenge will be finding one here.
The TineK lampshades are also a favorite and I will try and have a go at making one myself.

I like the softness that the pink cushions lend to the space and the organic elements 
in form of the pot plants and cane baskets.

I am keeping an eye out for a display cabinet for our dining area - unfortunately it's is really hard to get a bargain on used furniture here - even those that are crying out for a re-paint.

The picture wall above is really lovely. I am looking into framing some black & white photos of mine and displaying them in the lounge above my white cabinet. Using the same style of frames keeps it from looking too busy.

Kitchen: let's not go there. My current kitchen is so terrible the only thing that would remedy it is a sledge hammer :-) 

I do like the mother-of-pearl shells along the shade - an easy diy project.

What do you think? Is this to your taste? 
I'd love to hear.

A little peek into our new home

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I have really missed this space and can't wait to get back into regular blogging 
once my life is a little more settled. 

We still have boxes everywhere and life is pretty crazy around here. I have been interviewing for a job and looking at daycare options for the boys. My main priority however will always be creating a warm, comforting home for my boys to grow up in. They just absolutely love our new house with it's big "jungle" garden to explore. I will take you on a little garden tour soon but for now I will give you a little sneak peak into our home.

I still have a million things to do here but I enjoy creating little corners in the chaos that make me feel happy when I walk past. 

This weekend I swung the paintbrush and transformed an old bookcase, a mirror and a vintage suitcase I found in my mother-in-laws garage. It's the perfect place for our DVDs and the best thing is the boys can't open it - yet. 

Yesterday I went into the city centre for the first time and was blown away by the worlds first container mall that has been put in place where Christchurch's main shopping street once was - prior to the earthquake. I will post some pictures on here as soon as I can.
