Daniel and I seem to be able to stare at our floor plan for hours. I am absolutely in love with it. I love trying to imagine what it will look like in person. I’m constantly on Pinterest looking for ideas on how to decorate and planning different areas of the house. (Pinterest is one of my other obsessions in addition to the house).

We have added a bay window to the master bedroom, something I’ve always wanted! Growing up, my parents had a bay window in their room and I loved it. Our puppy loved sleeping on the bay window seat and being able to look out and growl at the birds in the garden. Theirs had an amazing little garden underneath the windowsill. I really hope my Mum will help us to make gardens as beautiful as hers were! My parents now live on a boat, so hopefully Mum might enjoy directing some gardening escapades.
I’m also excited about the fact that our bathroom window is situated very close to our gully. When it rains heavily, you can hear the water rushing through the gully for days/weeks afterward. I can just imagine having a bath and being able to listen to those sounds. It should be amazing!
The original plans had the office at the front which didn’t suit us. We instead converted that to a small store room. I envisage the store room as a place with hooks and shelves where we can put bags, shoes and coats. However, Daniel is planning a Comms Cabinet, where there will be an Ethernet patch panel. I don’t even know what that means! Anyway…
We really love the open feel of the kitchen, dining and family area. I’m currently obsessing over kitchen colours. We have already picked out three pendant lights that will hang over the island in the kitchen. Just what I have always wanted! It’s hard to see on the plans, but there is also a cut out between the family and activity room where we will install plantation shutters at some point.
The study and media is pretty much the main thing that we needed in any house we chose. Eventually we will have some type of folding door installed, turning the space into two separate areas when the door is closed. I’m imagining some kind of amazing print on the back of the folding door which only becomes apparent when it is closed. Initially we won’t have the door and it will just be one open space. Coral didn’t offer the exact type of doors we were looking for. It seemed easier to just get them to put a square set in the spot where we want a door and get it installed later.
Pretty big house for two people! I guess we are just preparing for the house we will need in the future.
