Curtains such a big decision don’t you think?

We have roller blinds but the slither of light at the side is waking us up, OK mainly me at 5am and I getting rather zzzzz.

I have to find a solution and I believe curtains will be it. But the thought is overwhelming as there are so many options.

Look at these below….I am drawn to them all, but I have to remember that it isn’t just my room alone!! And sharing is caring 🙂














A print over a plain just really changes the room so much and a heavy weight curtain sets its own stage.















At this point I do not know what I will choose but as usual I will probably come across something and nothing else will seem right. I am just hoping that happens sooner rather than later….















Isn’t this one a beauty?  I love a good blue based floral.














Soft and floaty is something I like but this linen look will not keep the sun out to the level I need it to.  Perhaps I can use something like this in the downstairs living room.















How have you gone choosing window treatments? I’d love to hear!

I love this GREY!!

Only once have I bought a sample pot and this was the one time it was an absolute failure. I now know with myself not to second guess my gut instinct on colour choices.

Mr G had not wanted me to paint any part/room of the house as we only did it all in 8 months ago. So when Mr G went to The Alice for 5 days of work I went to the paint store 🙂

It started with a bit of this…..

Grey paint selection done.

And then as soon as I started putting the colour on I knew this was just what my furniture and the room needed. White is the easy choice when you are painting your house. It takes vision to go with a colour, but the results are worth it. If you are thinking about painting a room, I say go for it, you can always paint it back if you hate it THAT much. And as I also gravitate towards white furniture I needed to have colour on my walls or else everything blends in. That and I am now wanting to increase the timbers and other natural textures into my home, otherwise an all white house with all white furniture it is rather boring.

Here is my lounge room when Mr G went away.



And then after all that hard work with thanks to Mister G for helping with the big furniture removal and the application of the first coat this is the AFTER.

With a coat of Taubmans we are now looking like home.

I cannot love it anymore than I do now, and now it shows even more that I need some wall art! Any guesses what Mr G brought back from Alice Springs?

P.S. If you noticed the lamp on the right? I will do a separate post of that little gem, it is too beautiful not have it’s own post.

French Style Cafe Chair Find

Miss Goodman Property Purchased these French Style or Hamptons inspired chairs at a garage sale last month. I have been VERY unsure about them as I am a NAVY girl. I have had many suggestions on these ‘ol dears and have decided to just wait and see if I can work them in with my outdoor style. They do need the bamboo re-polished and some of the joints are unraveling, but at least nothing major!

A big WHITE table will be on the shopping list to balance out these girls. I had thought of painting them but they would be in a long queue for the paint brush at my house!

They are rather Halycon House style aren’t they? Hmmm……
