The Journey of building our forever home

The Journey of building our forever home

My Dream Kitchen

We have now been living here for around 3+ weeks  - time has just flown!  We are pretty much settled in - still have a few more large pictures to hang, the bath still isn't connected and toilet roll holders need to go on ( hint hint hubby!) House has been really lovely to live in and definitely feels like "home"

We have been flat out working on our front garden and have been out there almost every weekend and after work.  Its back breaking hard labour really!  We have so far completed a huge retaining wall, hubby has installed recycled brick edging and yesterday I laid 125 square metres of instant turf almost by myself in between clients ( thank godness mum gave me a hand for an hour!) This morning wasn't a pretty sight - I felt like a 90 year old woman getting out of bed - so sore. Will update with some landscaping images over the next few weeks

Thought I would share with you the completed images of our beautiful kitchen today. When designing our house my kitchen was one space that had to be a stand out feature and be the hub of the home.

Now that we have been living here for a few weeks my kitchen is such a great space to work in and I find myself cooking meals and baking quite often as its a joy to be in. The area is a lovely light filled space with floor to ceiling windows to take in our beautiful view - most people that walk into this room the first thing they say is "wow" which is nice!

With 10 foot ceilings, large cornices, concealed commercial style range hood, stunning marble splashback, soft close drawers and a contrasting island bench.  I also have a massive four metre butlers pantry with a sink, coffee/tea area and a heap of storage - this is such a great feature as it means the mess stays in here and out of the kitchen!

Still need to purchase some bentwood bar stools to finish the island bench - must order those soon

Love our Karen Rosenlund art print - it really suits the space 

Still need to order 3 of these chairs from Relax House to finish the look
