our home featured in House & Garden magazine!

I am terribly excited to let you know that our home has been featured in the latest issue of House & Garden magazine which hit new stands yesterday - It is hard to believe that this day is finally here!

We have been renovating our humble abode for four long and expensive years. It sure was a love/hate relationship which we first started renovating - you can see early shots here. It has been a very long, but also lovely and satisfying journey.

Last year we had a few magazines approach us after seeing some of our progress shots here on our blog. After many months of working to finish off lots of last bits and pieces, we had a shoot in August by the ever talented combo team of photographer Maree Homer & stylist Kate Nixon. It was an amazing day of seeing what goes on behind the scenes of a magazine shoot. Lots of people asked us if they bought in extra props and furniture - and other then a collection of pineapples and some beautiful flowers (thanks Louise!), the shoot was all of our house as is. It was a very lovely day with two very talented and inspiring ladies.

A few weeks later, we were treated by a visit from the very lovely journalist Amanda Ducker all the way from Tasmania. We sat around the dining table and chatted for hours about life, love, letterpress and renovations in our 1935 original timber queenslander - Another lovely day with tea and many laughs!

Heart felt thank yous to Maree, Kate and Amanda and the team at House & Garden - It was such a great great joy!


  1. Wow...that is exciting!...and quite an honor, if I'm not mistaken. I love your blog. It is so fresh and clean looking :)

  2. A huge congratulations on the H&G feature and on creating such a beautiful home! I have just gone right back through your blog to follow the renovation journey, and it has given me a huge boost of motivation for our own project. 18 months in, my husband and I are exhausted from our farmhouse renovation. Seeing your efforts reminded me that beautiful things take time to create, and that they're worth it in the end. Thank you.

  3. How very exciting! I'm so glad you posted some pictures or I would have died from anticipation. Going to the newsagents right now! It looks amazing.
