The entrance of my home is a lovely wide brick paved foyer.... but it was leading up to an indoor garden....this just doesn't work when you have 5 cats - it really had to go.
To our surprise the garden had no base......it when straight down under the house - which was so impractical in a leafy suburb like ours.....perfect termite territory.
Time for our first project !!
........ in keeping with the exotic Mediterranean feeling of this home I sourced some amazing hand painted Spanish tiles from a company in Brisbane....www.oldworldtiles.com.au/.
I couldn't go past the colour in these tiles.
We dug out the garden.....and put in a concrete base ready to be tiled.
We are building a internal water feature aghhhhhhhhh !!!!!

Here was my new home 12 months ago, I fell in love immediately although we were not really ready to move on yet - fate had other ideas !! Soaring ceilings and rustic appeal - the house has an amazing feeling that everybody 'just gets'.
After 1 year of settling in and making it our own - its a wonderful space that I am proud to call home.
There was an actual garden and water feature in the entry, with five cats this was the first thing that had to go :)

What an amazing stair case........simple and captivating :)
Amidst one of my crazy chaotic mad days ......I always try to remember to slow down and do one thing at a time, step by step, patiently, slowly and enjoyably........i would definitely take this gorgeous stair case one step at a time :)
