No house photos this morning as I didn't even get my camera out yesterday... but this beautiful room illustrates the sort of look and 'feel' I am aiming for in my home.
Tiles have arrived and I have been assured that a tiler is materialising today... well I am supposed to be meeting one at 10am this morning, so it's almost a sure thing.
Still sorting out the front retaining slab, steps and driveway. Have had a few very scary quotes so we are getting yet another quote today. Electricians are running conduit around the front for our exterior lighting. I still don't have all my light fittings. Having been so pathetically sick for 8 weeks, I just haven't had it in me and have done the bare minimum to keep my side of the equation going. I can live with those unattractive, temporary plastic light cones if I don't get everything done in time. I can always get the electricians back.
The random stone is being laid out in the pool area. It's just BEAUTIFUL! I have promised my landscapers that I will put their details up on my blog. If anyone in Brissie needs a good landscaper.... I have the man. The best communicator too... isn't that what it's all about... oh and good quality workmanship as well!
The painting is still a happening thing. The white internal gloss doors are better than I ever expected. I so appreciate my painter talking me into gloss and not semi gloss. I figured he has done it thousands of times and I have done the whole paint thing 'nunce' so I was happy to take advice from an expert. Gloss is 'da bomb'! I might just have to do a batch of my Anzac biscuits for the painters. I think they are sick of my "looking good and so's the painting" comments. I bet they can't wait to get this job over and done with.... having to put up with me floating around all day!
Mid next week is when I am assured everything will be happening. The tiler will take about a week to work his magic and then my appliances arrive next Tuesday. Lights and plumbing fixtures will start being installed next Wednesday. Yey, I will be able to serve food on my dining table once I relieve it of all the fittings that I have been stockpiling on it for the past year!
This is where I muse about home design, interiors, my life, my boys and stuff that sort of stops my heart. I have an online store full of my favourite Hamptons style lighting over at www.capecoddesigns.com.au ... and ... I'm currently planning my next house build.
