Renovation Update...


Well hello friends! and welcome to the reveal....um... not quite how I wanted it to sound :)
Actually, today was the first day I felt somewhat pleased we did all the stuff we did...survived the dust, the dirt, the noise, the chaos...and "The Fall"...


Do you all remember the disaster that was our entrance...and the TV room? Here is the new look...still missing some flowers and general dusting etc , but all in all I am pleased that some of the space in our house is semi-habitable... Do you like it?

This fireplace is the spot we spend most of our winter evenings here in SA...it gets mighty cold this time of the year, and there really is nothing nicer than a real fire to sit next to...


Some faded, vintage looking cushions for the window seat... nice spot for a snooze in the sun...


Although my favourite colour is pink, you can see that I just LOVE red for a house...


The floors are still very dusty...hopefully things will look better after a good cleaning session...

A little Happy Birthday wish to Jenna... and a get better wish for little Erin...

Have a good evening folks...
Lots of Love,
Heidi ☺

Heidi - how on earth did you finish so quickly? The room is graceful and lovely. You've done a wonderful job of combining a cozy, fire-side feeling with a nice formal elegance. It's a room made for having conversations, or reading by firelight, or writing letters by the bay window. The red gives it vibrance. Our house is very American mountain, home spun craft - yours has the elegant comfort of a graceful, dignified, but warm and welcoming country house.

May I please come visit tomorrow? I promise to behave. Oh- but there's that matter of a continent and an ocean -
