A child of the 80s, I’m a colour-loving mother of two, freelance photographer and all-round creative type. I’m a sucker for Swedish design, Mexican food and a glass of French bubbles to celebrate.
In 2010 I met Simon, a handsome rock-climbing architect, and on New Year’s Eve in 2011 we got engaged (while camping) and later married (no camping involved). Both originally from SA, after a brief stint in Darwin we moved to Melbourne and bought a house in the northern ‘burbs in 2014. We then set about renovating it beyond recognition, to create a home for our growing family.
With an appetite for good design, I was adamant that our home would not only provide a roof over our heads, but it would look good too and work around our day-to-day life, including working from home. Over the past three years, this has meant completely overhauling the existing 1950s weatherboard house and doubling its size with a modern extension.
Now with two kids and a dog to chase after, my brain just ain’t what it used to be. This blog is a record of family and home life, sprinkled with a little of this and that on the side for good measure.
House Tour coming soon!
