The Living Room Files: "Before", "during" and "after"

While my fellow Australians are wading through knee deep water and buying the last of bottled water and petrol supplies (and they're the lucky ones), I continue rearranging furniture and making this house a home. It feels surreal, but here in Sydney, pretty much all we can do is donate as much as we can (find out how here) and stay glued to the 24 hour coverage. But for now, some light relief in the form of a little "before", "during" and "after" I prepared earlier:




I hope you approve of the new cushions!

  1. Looks LOVELY! I love how the green in the pillows picks up on the outdoors. And such a wonderful ideal to place the "LOVE" sign in the window!



  2. Hi Lou,
    I think your renovation is going to become an obsession!

  3. LOVE the new cushions and your new lounge - looks so comfy!! x

  4. LOVE the new cushions! My immediate thought when I saw the second photo was what an amazing backyard and what gorgeous cushions :)

  5. Love your work Louise. And yes, I do love the cushions. Well done!

  6. Looking brilliant - the cushions are perfect.


  7. Louise, it's looking so great... Seems you're in paradise, loving the tropical touch you're giving the place.
    Keep the updates coming!

  8. We are feeling helpless even here on the Gold Coast as we are told not to go near the city (Brisbane). We are working as normal and it is completely surreal. Donating is the best way to help. We are also hoping to donate some furniture after people have cleaned up a bit. Oh yes, and your living room looks great. I love your house :)

  9. Hi Louise,
    Just letting you know I linked to Table Tonic...

  31. I drop a leave a response whenever I appreciate a post on a site or if I have something to contribute to
    the discussion. Usually it's caused by the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this post "The Living Room Files: "Before", "during" and "after"". I was actually moved enough to post a commenta response ;-) I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these remarks come across like written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd like to keep
    up with you. Could you make a list all of all your community pages like your
    twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin
