Nobody said that renovation was easy and the pressures that are placed on a homeowner can be immense when renovating. BUT it's with a heavy heart that I watched The Block last night and watched Tim and Anastasia deal with their budgeting issues. In the real world you would never move forward with any costs that you knew you could never pay (and even if you couldn't you would have the option of going to the bank to borrow more and if that wasn't possible you might ask a friend or family member to help out) You would also be able...

Kitchen Storage Solutions - 13 Clever Kitchen Design Ideas With a busy life and a busy family, my kitchen can be a mess. I try to keep it clean but it's a never-ending task, frankly, I don't like to do it! Who does? I remember when I was a young girl and my brothers had to do all the washing up and they complained that I never had to do anything. As the youngest, I thought this was good and never really understood when my mother would say to them - "don't worry, Liane will get her turn". Well, I've got my...

From light grey to dark grey to charcoal I can always find a shade that I love. But it got me thinking about the psychology of the colour grey and this is what I found - Kate Smith on Sensational Color says - Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge, and wisdom.

TIMBER FLOORING  - What To Consider With Your Subfloors Whether industrial, minimalist, modern or traditional, timber floors compliment virtually any interior. Not only are timber floors versatile and timeless, they are a strong selling point to any home. However, when deciding on timber flooring for your home, there are many factors to consider: 1. SUBFLOOR Your building subfloor will determine the timber options you can choose from. Traditional hardwood floors must be laid over hardwood joists.

Renovation - #DesignerColourPalette Natural Comfort Hues With so many interior design images passing my desk and the unrenovated Sydney house that I live in calling me, I am drawn to collect colour palettes for my next renovation. I have a real thing for black and white but natural hues still have a strong place in my mind. I find timber with its organic feel and lines is a product and finish that never dates and lets face it I don't have the money or the time to continuously change my interiors. The only negative I find with timber is "brown," it's just not my...
