Looking for a white paint?

Are you looking for a white paint but don’t know where to start? Yes, I’ve been there done that! It’s tricky to get it right (and don’t even start me on the colour grey!). Today I have a list of some white paints you might like to consider. The first thing you will need to decide on is whether you are after a COOL white or a WARM white. Once you decide which is your preference you can start to…

Around here lately

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by today. How are things in your neck of the woods? My boys are finally back to school and in a proper and busy routine. They don’t sit still, so being busy is the key to controlling them! They’ve grown so much and I can’t believe they aren’t little anymore. Chevy is in year 4, Cruise is in year 8 and Tex is in year 5. So, this means I am also back at school…

Target’s new bedding

Target released a new homewares catalogue today and I wanted to share their new bedding with you. It’s cute and so cheap! I popped in my local Target today to check them out. They started at $29 each and I think the most expensive was $69… Most of them are reversible too so that’s value for money. I’m considering the navy/yellow/grey cover for one of my boys. Go here to see them online. Target also has a lot of “on trend”…

The Butler’s Pantry

The definition of a butler’s pantry: A service room between a kitchen and dining room, typically equipped with counters, a sink, and storage space for china and silver. Typically these days it’s a room hidden behind your kitchen to house all the kitchen crap you don’t want out on show! I’ve seen many with and without the sink, so that’s just a personal preference. For me, I use mine as a storage room to contain all the school bags, notes, kitchen appliances, food…

Kmart: Live life in pastel

Kmart doesn’t look like it’s slowing down on the homewares front. And why should it? The company would have to be making a killing! If you’re on instagram you’ve probably already seen their new range of goodies. Every second person has grabbed something from their selection. Including me! If you’re an avid interior designer you’ve probably stayed away from the cookie cutter style homewares, but I just think their style and range is so good that you can’t go past…

Laundry shelf planning

My laundry needs something! I love the size and space I have in there, but I think it needs a big shelf. When I built the house I had intended to put overhead cupboards in, but I ditched it last minute (money!). Since then I’ve happy been without anything overhead and I have decided I don’t need the additional cupboards. It would be too overwhelming and cumbersome (well maybe they would be ok, but $1,800-$2,000 for cupboards I won’t use…
