A promise of sun

We were told we would have a warm 21 degrees today in Melbourne. So in preparation a good friend of mine came over to have our traditional glass of champagne to celebrate the first day over 20 after winter. Unfortunately we were a little premature as the sun didn't shine through but even so the promise of sun left us feeling happy.

This got me to thinking about the fact that good design can make a beautiful house but what makes a lovely home?

Top of my list is family and friends. I love to entertain and am looking forward to having our new deck, with room to set up a large table for a long lunch with people I love.

I love to fill my house with warmth, fun and happy children. It is important to me that our house reflects my families personality. So our walls are filled with pictures we have collected in our travels, photos and children's artwork.

What makes your house a home?


  1. 21 degrees! It's raining here in Oslo... autumn begins... I'm planning to visit a few flea markets to cheer up this weekend :)

  2. Sometimes i think its the imperfections and little reminders of daily life; the kids shoes on the floor - where they arent supposed to be!!) a few dishes in the sink etc.. I love when my house is totally and perfectly tidied, but it doesnt feel lived in, i do need to have that lived in feeling !!! maybe that makes me strange!! But i think people have to be comfortable at home. Hope you have a wonderful day,
