Our new house: Living Room - DONE!

One down, many more to go - As of this morning, the living room is FINISHED!!! Done and dusted and eagerly awaiting the arrival of a suitably enormous Jasper sofa in sandy coloured corduroy) from King Furniture on Tuesday. We are still without a coffee table though (hellooo Mark Tuckey). Here is a little tour:

 (above) The dining table centrepiece - A gold leaf platter (a roadside find) filled with Amethyst clusters, all from eBay.


(above) The corner of the deck, as it appeared this afternoon. Just heavenly...

(above) A Table Tonic Moroccan Wedding Blanket keeps a white leather Barcelona daybed from Clickon Furniture warm, down the end of the dining room. Tulip side table, also Clickon.

 Well, that's it (for today!) Tonic-ettes. So much changes and improves from one day to the next, I guarantee I'll have more for you soon. Tomorrow I must finish undercoating Mini Tonic's bed, then it's off to Bunnings to find that "Hermes orange" paint...

  1. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. But that white? Well, it just confirms you are far better at keeping a clean house than I ever will be. Those windows into the backyard just make me swoon.

  23. Kristy, we painted the walls in Dulux Natural White and we LOVE it! Nice and "chalky", but still very crisp. The trim is Dulux Vivid White, and the floor is just regular white paving paint. x
