Why Can’t I just be neat & tidy?

This is our lounge room.


It is what you would call clutterrific.

I must keep reminding myself that it really doesn’t take that long to tidy up and I must do it OFTEN!

It also makes my husband extremely happy. Does anyone else believe in ENERGY?? I can feel it when I re-enter a room that I have just tidied, it hits me like a tonne of bricks. It is all the good energy. (I swear, not a hippy, but this is something I believe in, yet. . . still have a very hard time keeping things tidy)

There are so many things to be done around this room.

My Marimekko magnolia fabric piece needs to be hung on the wall, not just resting on top of the couch.

Some more frames hung on the wall. I need to sand and paint that window. Blinds for the windows will be coming shortly (At least that is done)

Once I work out a mood board for this room, I would most likely like my settee to be reupholsted. Need to buy a coffee table. I think I would love an oval shaped one.

Need to buy light fittings for this room, two in total. I have decided on the ones I would like, just a matter of $$$.

I think I would like to replace the rug to a patterned one in a nice pastel colours.

I didn’t really finish this side. The card board boxes there are the extra Ikea unit to be put together for the tv unit (so there will be 4 not 3 as you see here)

Need to take away the tall brown bookcase and put it in bedroom 2. I don’t like it here (hence why it is practically empty)

The other cardboard box is a large clock we bought. Still yet to be hung!! My husband has a list of things that need hanging as long as his arm. I think I might need to aquatint myself with the drill. (Ahh yeah right)

That mid century danish style armchair is for sale if anyone wants it. It is not my thing. Looked nice in my apartment, but not for this house.

Need to get marble cut for the top of the tv unit. . . one day.

And another recent purchase.

I went back to coco republic to buy a rug for the 2nd bedroom. The gray one I wanted was sold, so I ended up getting this one.

It is 100% wool and was $299. (Originally $499) Very happy.

Absolutely no idea what that silver box thing is on the right. Never seen it before. This is what happens when you marry a die hard nerd.

In other news. My dehumidifier is working a treat. I am in love with it. It takes the bite out of the air, the cold chill that just whips you constantly. Raising the temperature by a few degrees as well. Then we installed the ceiling insulation (so far just above our bedroom and half of the the lounge room and you can tell a difference with that too)

. . .and. . . . just one more flower shot, because I have no self control.

I cut some more stems, because they were ready!

I can’t wait for my white ranunculuses to flower. I planted them at the same time.

    I agree, I love this room and think the setee is especially gorgeous!

    The Danish chair is lovely too, if only it worked for my home.
