I've started to map out the interior spaces of the extension including the kitchen. Benny came up with the design and chose the finishes of the last kitchen and we were so happy with it - apart from the leather handles which were my idea and turned out to be an epic fail in terms of functionality. I think they broke and were replaced twice!
This time around we have a bit more time up our sleeves so we have the luxury of researching and designing it together. This house definitely has more heritage details so I’m really wanting to feature these and keep everything very classic. Back when I was nannying in London a loooooong time ago we had an amazing double fireclay sink and I’ve always wanted one since. Not sure how my other half feels about them, time to meld our two tastes together and see what comes out. There’ll no doubt be a few arguments but I love this part of the process and creating something that is uniquely ‘us’.

Benny has been working hard the last few weeks finishing off the little details that seem like quick jobs but take forever! He restored and painted the original doors for the master, robe and ensuite, and painted the robe cabinetry which was a massive job. Here's a little snap of our completed ensuite. Couldn't be happier with the finished room.
Recent project: tender design

I recently put together a bid design for one of my corporate clients. The project focuses on relocatable buildings within schools so the minty, cool colour palette and simple geometric shapes were a nice reference to education. Fingers crossed they are awarded the project!

We had a pretty horrendous last few weeks madly trying to finish the ensuite and painting, then moving in. Carpet went down in the master bedroom and robe and we had the exterior of the house tuck pointed which has made a huge difference. We're slowly getting sorted, still waiting on cabinetry to be installed in robe and ensuite. Here are a couple of recent shots, more to come of finished bathroom soon.
