We are in the process of settling papers etc our new home! Can’t reveal too much because nothing’s final, but here are sneak peeks…

It’s a mid 1990s brick veneer home. Ex-showroom house with only two prior owners. (We would be the third.)

Good news: Plenty of light, cathedral ceiling heights.

Bad news: Current owners smoke indoors.

Better news: That means I get to repaint!

More news to come. I’m really excited about it, because I got a home to finally paint and we got it at a goooooood price! Yay for desperate sellers.

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
