Getting Ready for Winter

A little mid-week update (hello public holiday!) before work awaits again tomorrow. I spent a bit of time this morning getting our balcony ready for “winter”. Looks like we are finally heading towards cooler temperatures this weekend! The reality is, however, if it is a sunny day even in winter, it gets quite warm on our balcony. All my plants survive through the winter months, so there’s no need to take any of them inside.

I’ve also added a couple of throws around our home and taken out even more candle holders, all set for those dark winter nights. Needless to say I really love this time of the year!

Stay tuned for more updates at the end of the week!

Bedroom Decor Wish List

We are in the thick of planning our renovations and even though it might seem more like a “5 year plan”, I am really keen to get something started. I’ve been told that these things tend to escalate and so they have: from new floorboards, to perhaps painting the walls, to adding a whole new room and not just a room, but a mezzanine level (or a loft, as you may prefer to call it). No wonder we are not getting anywhere; we keep adding more and more to our already extensive plans.

To take a little break from choosing the right floors and wall colour, I thought it would be fun to plan a little wish list for our bedroom. A wish list for the bedroom decor, that is. Here are a few things I have earmarked for when we are ready to redecorate.

Let’s start with¬†a new mattress – I am feeling really optimistic about this one: Hugo Sleep is Australian made (always a bonus!) and looks extremely comfortable. Guaranteed to provide 8 hours of solid sleep, amirite? Better yet, the mattress is delivered (free of charge!) in a box (whaaat??). I am excited to try this just for that reason.

Nothing better than new bed linen. Stone is a new colour by Australian company In Bed. With lighter floors and perhaps slightly darker walls, I think Stone would be a perfect match!

Optional, but highly lustworthy, are these gorgeous bedheads by Finnish company Matri (try rolling the “r”). Anything wicker/rattan, whatever one chooses to call it, is on trend and I want some! Let’s add the bedside tables and that beautiful end-of-the-bed bench while we are at it, please.

Last, but not least, I would add this coat stand by BEdesign. I have seen many stand alone coat stands over the years, but there’s something about the shape, along with the accessories, that I really like about this one.
