1. Bricks... as a feature.
They may be rustic but I reckon they soften a room ...
... take away it's airs and graces...bring it back down to earth.
2. Panelling and coffered ceilings... oh and black doors.
3. An entire wall of French door assemblies.
Love doors with transoms.
4. Dark transoms.
They don't even have to be black... just dark, framed in white.
Love the timber in this home!

5. Basketweave tiles...
....especially when paired with a classical subway tile.
See them? on the shower floor?
Love the transom feature too.... and the sink... and the floor tile.
Look, they've tiled the shower ceiling!
6. Transoms in bathrooms.
They bring in such beautiful light.
7. .....well this is really still number 6... more bathroom transoms..
see?.. lots of light ....
.. and these are black which makes them even more heart-stopping.
8. Full entry way transoms.
This one is perfection in my eyes .... simple moldings, deep reveal.
Are you sensing a theme here? Obsessed with transoms.
9. Chunky French door assemblies.... with deep reveals... love.
Isn't this a beautiful room? I sort of desperately love everything in it... the cabinetry, the door hardware the coffered ceiling, the contrasting black tile around the fireplace, the herringbone in the fireplace!... the neutral furnishings, the natural fibre rug. Yep, love. it. all.
10. Interesting staircases.
I love this..... as it is tucked away behind a transom.
Maybe I should have just titled this post, 'Rooms With Transoms'... I'll never get over them you know!
School holidays! Delicious. 7am and we're all still in bed. Loving it. I love that my boys aren't waking up to an alarm and sleep as they need it. No wonder they grow 2 shoe sizes in the school holidays.
We're off to Gran's today.... to climb trees and wallow in the dam shallows, looking for things with signs of life. I am looking forward to having my tea in a pretty cup... and there's always something yummy to go with it at Gran's!
