Summer holidays...

I am at work this week and I keep thinking about all of those people out there driving off to stay in summer batches and lying on the's torture!
Luckily I am only working three days and then next week I am off to Sydney for five days. I have started doing my research into what interior shops I can visit while I am there. I am definitely going to go to Sibella Court's shop The Society Inc. I've been checking out her portfolio and look at some of the inspiring work I have found:

Merry Christmas

Christmas is at my house this year and lunch will be on the deck (hopefully in the sunshine) with ham, chicken, sausages, turkey...basically every  meat known to man! I am so looking forward to setting the table on christmas morning. I found some fabulous christmas table settings to inspire me:

Bedroom finished!

We finally finished the bedroom on the weekend and I love it so much I want to spend all my time in there. It is so cosy and inviting. I'm afraid the picture I took just doesn't do it justice because I don't have a wide angle lense on my camera (like in the real estate "before" picture below).



Mirror in the dining room

Found a mirror for the dining room in the weekend and it was a steal - only $150 (from Briscoes!) crazy. It's a little more glam than I am used to, but it looks great as a focal point in the dining area.

Wedding woes

After being so organised planning my wedding, I have had a few hiccups these last couple of weeks. My venue fell though - with only three months to go! - and I have been frantically searching for another. You'd be suprised by how little everything else matters if you don't have a wedding venue.

March in Napier is a very popular time to get married, so it hasn't been easy.  Luckily - a few tearful tantrums later- we have finally found a new venue, or venue(s). We have had to split the ceremony and reception up, but it is okay because they are within walking distance of eachother.

Now we are having the ceremony at the Centennial Gardens:

And the Ceremony at the iconic Hawkes Bay Club (which is a lovely alternative):

Dining room

We finally put up the Grasscloth wallpaper I purchased from Resene a few weeks ago in the dining room as a feature wall. The new curtains are also up and there is no sign of the wall sconce I hated so much - I think the space looks much more sophisticated now. Especially with our brand new contemporary Christmas tree. I dressed the table as a practice run for Christmas, which is at my house this year!
