Updates to our home...

We bought these day/night roman blinds to go into the bedrooms, office and lounge. They are two blinds in one, and can be worked individually.
The lounge and main bedroom are this gorgeous chocolate colour and the other rooms are a beautiful natural, sandy colour. During the day they have a sheer curtain that allows light to filter in but noone can see in, so you can still get dressed etc in the day without having to pull the main blind down. 
During the night, the heavier blind can be dropped, which stops all morning sunlight (and makes the rooms very dark - great for sleeping in).. These pictures definately don't do them justice, as they are just beautiful in real life, but you get the idea.. :)
here is a close up of the fabric. This is the chocolate one, but the colour is darker than this pic is showing due to the flash.

In the ensuite (shown below), bathroom and toilet, we installed these 50cm timber venetians. I love the smell of the timber (its a change from the smell of paint lol)

We upgraded our dining table to this one.. and of course we had to get the all important plasma, (state of origin is coming up! lol)
Our builder was generous and gave us a big pack of goodies.. there was a bottle of red wine and a few beers in there too... but they had already been 'enjoyed' when this pic was taken. 


Pics, Pics, Pics

Not-very-happy pooches on their first night.. 

Camping out on the first night. Carpets were being laid in the morning, so we decided to sleep in the family room

Kids had had enough of the move by mid morning!

but found other ways to amuse themselves the next day! 

Here are some pic of our house, during the first week. We have now upgraded some of the furniture, but more pics of those later....

- but we have no internet :( ( I am posting this from works computer shh!!)
Hopefully we will have a little bit of internet to play with this week sometime, from a wireless usb modem, but permanent connection wont be until June~~

We are loving the house :) It is very cosy and homely.
We are in the process of buying and installing blinds for the whole house - For most of the house we went to spotlight (my fav store!) and bought day/night roman blinds. They are two blinds in one.. great idea! The bathrooms and toilet have timber 50cm venetians.. looks very country and modern.. Love them!!
Sorry guys you will have to wait for a while for pics, but I will post as soon as possible.
Missing your all!!
Hope you are all loving your new home, and having a ball!
