When we open the door


happy home

So as many of you may already know we only just moved into our new house in December and we still have months of work ahead of us to make this house a home from upgrading, renovating and painting there is a lot to do although we are slowly getting there. There are a few sections of the house that I do love, one being an alcove to the side of the front door and it holds a few of our favourite things. The three little cacti never fail to make me smile, as does our authentic vintage radio and little trinket box from Australia. Underneath the ledge is a side table which still needs to be painted and an umbrella stand we picked up from a bric a brac store. For some reason Mr A likes to put on and take off his shoes right next to the front door so it's also somehow become his own personal shoe space, which it what happens when you become a parent. I love the retro feel and would love to carry this through the hallway and love this inspirational image below which would be my dream

We also wanted to take a moment to say a huge THANK YOU to all our readers for voting us into the MADS Blog finales for Home and Interiors and thank you for stepping into our home and lives and joining us on our crazy little adventure

I thought I would take a moment to share some of our favourite Home and Interior posts we have done,  from Trends in 2014 to our our dream Boys bedroom and what Mr A's crib looks like, our little record nook we have created in our new house, some dreamy interior inspirations or our home and style at this past Christmas. I hope this gives you a small insight into our life, taste and interior style and I really hope you can spare a few moments to vote for use in the Finals for the MADS as you will make this little family very happy. Also check out the other finalists here

  1. I love your home. Congratulations on making the final! I love all your home posts! I love Mr A's shoes there in a row, as you have more kids and bigger feet this just starts to look like clutter so we can no longer do this in my house! lol :-) Lots of love Claire xxx
