Whilst the Northern hemisphere is looking to rug up and get cozy for the on coming winter season, us lucky peeps in the south are getting ready for the summer. Whether that be burning the calories at the gym to get the beach body going or shopping for the ultimate summer wardrobe.
My mind turns to the all important outdoor space. Now our apartment is not blessed with a massive outdoor space, it is a good size compared to some in Sydney, we have a wicker two seater and armchairs and a modest number of pots. So it is cozy and functional. And on those hot summer evenings it can be the perfect spot to watch the sun go down (west facing) with a cold beverage or two!!
Now I am not sure if you’ve worked it out yet, buy I am a complete and utter shopping nut. None more so then when it is for homewares.
I love some of the products available here in Australia, but find the same products find their way into all shops, meaning finding something a little bit different can be a challenge. That is why I turn a lot to Etsy.
But what about overseas stores?
We have been lucky in the last few years to have had some international homewares stores open their doors here, including West Elm, H&M and Zara Home. But while we wait for more to come, thank god for the internet!!!!
So I know it’s been a while since my last update (click here to catch up), on my master bedroom revamp. Things moved along nicely and then we hit a wall (a freshly painted one LOL!!!!)
The main issue is the window dressings, but that’s a whole other episode. I’ll save that for later, I am not ready to talk about it yet.
On the positive side, we did snap up a bargain, albeit in the need of a little TLC, but what the heck!!!!
The Fella painted over the Easter break and I am really pleased with how it came out. Especially bearing in mind just how much The Fella hates painting, bribery in the form of Ferrero Roche chocolates was utilised.
