Happy Weekend!!


Since I posted the picture of my entrance table earlier in the week I have tweeked the tablescape a little as above.













To end the week I thought I'd post a few more pictures of home as it is coming together. It's all shaping up really well and it's starting to feel alot more like MY home which makes me feel very happy. I was finally able to unpack my clothes into my wardrobe last night which was a huge relief - living out of boxes is almost coming to an end - hooray!!! Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll see you next week.

Your flowers are gorgeous--I am so jealous! It's very cold where I am, and those hydrangeas make me long for warm weather again. Everything looks beautiful.

I love, love, love that mirror and the mosaic (?) chest. Lovely home and very feminine without being over the top.

Hi there,
I love the elephant sitting on top of the pile of books in front the 2 dogs. Where did you get him/her from? I am crazy about elephants. Would love to have one of those. Thanks.
Everything is gorgeous.

Anna, so glad it's beginning to feel more like home. Your wardrobe with the cubby for the Venetian mirror is lovely! Must be a relief to be able to hang your clothes.

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments! Drey - no the cupboards weren't there before - I had them custom built.

You have done a remarkable job. It is absolutely gorgeous.

I love both versions of the tablescape. Your dark wood floors are pretty too, and it looks like you have nice high ceilings.

Brilliant Asylum said...

What a pretty little niche with the Venetian mirror. Your home is so springy, fresh and bright--nice to see from a cold day here in the states.

I want that mirror. My friend has one that is very similiar that she found in her grandmother's attic.

Style Court said...

Looks wonderful Anna!!

Kristin said...

What a beautiful, well-appointed home. All the little feminine touches - from the bouquets of florals to the tiny tea-light holders - are warm and welcoming. I'd love to see your home in person sometime, but alas, Australia is a little far for me. What an inspiration... thank you!

EG said...

I love the lamps. Are those wicker shades?

Mélanie said...

I love the fabric on the armchair

WendyB said...

cindeeng said...

All Things Bright and Beautiful....Creative Flair Chic said...

Dear Anna - just featured your loungeroom on my weeks finds:-)
It reminds me of Cote de Texas's fabuloussconce post with Charlotte Moss! :-)

Kristin said...

I love the picture above the dresser....where did you get it/who is the artist? I love your blog :)

Roxanne said...

The china dogs on your dresser remind me of The Anne books by L.M. Montgomery. Anne and her friends moved into a little cottage called "Patty's Place" where she fell in love with the owner's "china dogs" named Gog and Magog.
