Hi Cuties, some of you might know we've been renovating our home. We had our 3 grandsons overnight on Saturday for a sleepover and they were the first kids to sleep in the new Spare room. The bed is quite high and young Chase fell out of it at one stage! He is 4 next Wednesday and is used to a low bunk bed! He was alright, just a bit confused as to where he was, so I just picked him up and put him back and asked if he was O.K. he just smiled and nodded! Our little Cohen who will be 3 in February was in Trev's TV room in his cot and didn't wake. Cooper didn't go to bed till 10.00 as we were watching a movie called Zootopia. They all thought the room was great.

I wanted to show you my new room too, everything in my place is blue (many shades of blue actually) and white. Trev actually commented the other day that it looks like Santorini!!!!
We still have the upstairs bathroom to do and that's getting done at the end of February after we come home from Europe for Christmas and the new year. All trades stop over the Christmas holidays here in Australia, so I'm glad we're in no hurry. Love Chris

1. This is our guest room - where the grand-children sleep now and our family from Canberra will be sleeping when they visit. The light shades are flock white fabric which I thought looked best up against the blue suede wall!
2. My new bedroom - I have light fittings to be put in, but they are inside my wardrobe waiting for the electrician they will hopefully be installed before we go away at Christmas. The bedside table lamp shades are a dark grey, and when the lights are on they look light grey!

Love blue too...both rooms look so serene and have a bit of a "beachy" feel...

Thanks Kim, yes, they are very calm and we only live 5 minutes from the beach, so I'm pleased they turned out so well. I want to make the Guest room more 'nautical' - I want some anchors, lifebuoys sort of things! Love Chris

Both rooms look so peaceful. Careful or you might be having a lot of friends making reservations. How I wish I could go back to Australia for a visit..

You can come over anytime Sarah. There's always a room for my Cute friends to stay. Love Chris

Unfortunately, it is not likely to happen. Just too far.

Elegant and crisp looking. Love it.
