Lightening Up!!
my hallway BEFORE (eeekk look at that awful yellow!!) and AFTER...
its been 4 months since Andrew painted the whole interior of our home and i still love coming home, opening the door and admiring it!!
this little corner here in my hallway is my favourite as you can see the paintwork nicely.

Neutrals teamed with white create such a fresh and airy feel and teamed with dark wooden floors its just my thing - love it!

We hope to find a new home soon but the market is at a standstill right now - nothing great for sale in our area, its pretty depressing as we're SO ready to move and have more space...cant wait to have a gorgeous new kitchen
imagine something like this

or this! both found on FLICKR....
now a girl can dream huh?!
have a FAB weekend everyone - we're off to Canberra for two days, should be fun!!


  1. Come to Addicted To Fabric, Canberra's loveliest fabric shop for a browse. Kids will love Questacon. Enjoy! Check out the Canberra's got Style blog for lots of great ideas!

  4. I love your hall way!so stylish,great!!!and yes I too dream of kitchens like those but must admit I am still head over heals with my own kitchen even after all these years.Pim installed it himself and after having a crappy kitchen for 15 years it still is such a relief to be standing in my kitchen in the morning to have my coffee.Love your post!!!xoxo

  5. Your house looks great, Anastasia! I too dreamed of a large kitchen for a long time, but ended up redecorating my small kitchen.

    Oooh I love how the paint job came out. I agree about neutrals too. As much as I love color, sometimes you need at least one room that brings about some calmness ya know?

  7. Anastasia, your painted hallway looks stunning. You are so very lucky to live in an a period home with those soaring ceilings! I wish!

    Have a blast in Canberra. My son has his yr 5 school camp there in a couple of weeks...he's so excited god bless his cotton socks lol

    Anna :)

  8. I love the hallway. The white wood finish is beautiful. Those kitchens you have picked out would be ones I dream about as well. Have a great time Canbarra!
    Cheers Kyla

  9. Your new colours are stunning. I also dream of neutrals with white and timber floors. Maybe I'll come and live in your house once you've moved on :)
