like waiting for buses…

you know the saying, you wait ages & nothing, then three buses come along all at once: well, it would appear that this phenomenon is not restricted to public transportation…

indeed, in my case, it appears to also be true with design projects!

& so it is…

exciting news to report, it looks like i’m going to be a busy lady in the upcoming weeks & months…

first things first, i’m going to church {hence the seemingly random image choice above}, but not to pray for divine intervention, strength or courage, but rather to design consult on this beauty…

unfortunately the hard work has already been done here {church conversions are notoriously difficult to get right}, but i’ll be offering my advice to a particularly sassy lady on how to turn a former house of prayer into a home…

next on the agenda i’ll be advising two renters {one a creative & one a tech head} on marrying their respective styles to give a temporary lodging a cohesive transformation…

& finally, drum roll please…

i’m building a home! from scratch!

it’s a tear down & start over scenario which is terrifying, exciting & no-doubt grey-hair inducing… so i’ll be sure to share with you whatever i learn along the way, which is bound to be heaps because i’ve never done this before!

where to start? bloody good question… & as soon as i find out i’ll be sure to let you know!

    • hehya chi… thank you so much… it’s still very early days, but i’m excited! it’s all still in my head, but slowly, slowly i’m working on a basic floor plan & trying to find a facade i actually like so i can get an architect involved & get the process moving! 🙂

  2. AHH! Congratulations!! I’m so excited and proud of you! You’re going to be super duper busy but in the best possible way. Oh man, I can’t wait to follow your adventures in decorating and building and styling and stressing! Bon chance! And so well deserved, too, might I add.

    Huge congratulations to you my dear. It all sounds rather busy but fun and exciting. I bet your pad will look stupendous abd from having done it myself, it is the nicest feeling to build one’s home according to one’s brief.

    Love the idea of helping out the renters with difference astes and the church, well, who knew?..
