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!

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……

Finished Lloyd Loom Laundry Hamper

Here she is, all done!! I am so thrilled with the result, I think that she is so pretty I don’t want to hide her in the laundry and perhaps she might become storage for throw rugs.

For a first timer on the upholstery front I am happy I picked such an easy piece, although there were still some tricky bits in it. Don’t you just LOVE the Willow inspired blue and white fabric? Very happy I was able to paint and reuse the plaited braid, polished up the handle and dooone!! Yeppie 🙂

After being embarrassed of how she has looked for over a decade I am motivated to get on with my long, long list of other treasures. The move house countdown is on afterall!

Grey Goes Glam? Or will it be Beautiful Blue

Miss Goodman Property

Tomorrow the other half and I are meeting the upholsterer at a fabric house to select a fabric and colour for our old well loved Natuzzi lounge.  Hubbie wanted to ditch it,  I of course wanted to rebirth it into the next decade! So now for the colour choice….it is such a hard one, the lounge is a big focal point in any room.  I am torn from the practical nature of dark greys to the soothing palette of pastel blue, but then there is a gorgeous cobalt blue I saw a Ralph Lauren lounge wrapped in.  Or for that bit of colour and pattern in a room I love the pattern on the single chairs pictured, usually only see this on a cushion! What decisions will come of tomorrow!  What would you choose?

Hamptons Happy Days

FMiss Goodman Propertyirst post, where do I start?  Thought I would show you the type of houses I love.  Some of these are just soooo dreamy and not seen in my little patch of this world.  I hope to build a version of this beauty just so much character.   I love a house with little nooks and spaces you don’t expect.  In the online real estate pages I am drawn to the impractical, small, timber and cute.  One drive by with the teenage daughter brings  me back into reality, just got to keep searching for the block of land that will take ‘the dream’!  My heart belongs to this white house and in our Queensland tropical climate it would work oh so well….
