White, white, white

My brother in law built this studio we now call home. In NSW, apparently anything larger than 9 x 4.5 meters (29.5 x 15 foot) require extra permits, and council approvals. They then consider it a “substantial building”.

So this is why it is small.

And my brother in law (who is very handy and loves working with his hands, and wood) was into the “wood, wood, wood” phase. Hence the overkill of unfinished plywood and cover strips everywhere. He’s thankfully now been exposed via yours truly to better taste, better design and awareness of the plethora of beautiful rooms I have on file.

We do have plans to paint the entire place white, budgets allowing. But forgive me whilst I go on an all-white binge!

    Jie – i love white too. Redoing bathroom – took down old wall paper.. Crystal did. and now painting it white. Lots of people here don't understand the white on white concept. It's white with a hint of blue. Miss ya-addie

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.
