Anyone who knows me well knows that i LOVE Grand Designs (I also love Kevin quite a lot too...). And my by far, all time, most favourite episode just happened to be showing on ABC recently, so i thought i would screen-capture the crap out of it so that
a. i could save the images for ever and ever
b. i could share them with you!
This episode features a 30 something interior designer who is able to build the house of her (and my) dreams, on a plot below her mother's house. Beautifully tucked away down a steep driveway, the house is secluded and amazing and wonderful.
WARNING: this is a very picture heavy post
(oh and sorry about the somewhat blurry images, ABC iview is to blame)
recycled and dud bricks are used cheaply and painted white
the balance of bright white with the silvering cladding
spacious kitchen dining area (with Kev-Dog too! What a spunk)
bespoke wooden stairs, shelves and bench tops, that wrap around high street drawers and cupboards
lots and lots of lovely open shelving
AMAZING stairs. Hands down my favourite feature
front door leading right into main living area
smart use of book shelves - dividing the room, but keeping the space light and open at the same time
step down into lower level lounge room
lovely little fire place, wonderful parquet flooring and light flooding the room
parquet flooring extending to the first floor
I'd like to move in next week please.
UPDATE: A good friend pointed out to me that the owner of above house has her own website, and by god, its chock full of her signature awesomeness. Have a look for yourselves
