Luxurious Leederville HomeΒ 

Occasionally you come across some amazing homes in Perth and this is one of them! I have been lucky enough to watch the progress of this newly renovated Leederville home. Isn’t she a beauty? 


I love what the owners have done masterfully extending a beautiful traditional home with the most modern of extensions. Enter polished concrete floors and drool worthy kitchen…

The kitchen is pure perfection with the kind of storage space most of us only dream of and can we talk about the pitched ceiling and amazing window?! Nothing gets me like a good window flooding with natural light.

Check out the massive triple glazed door below and wait for it… self cleaning windows from Finland… (Why didn’t I think of this for my home?!) The whole home has a gas central heating system so the answer is no… the polished concrete doesn’t make the home cold. 

And if that wasn’t enough, check out this hotel style master bedroom and ensuite… those tiles!! 

I honestly can’t go past the family bathroom either, having visited this home recently it’s safe to say I spent an embarrassing amount of time in here… white, oak and grey – my favourite colour scheme wrapped up in one room. 


I really could go on and on about the attention to detail throughout this home but the best news for you is that you can check it out yourself! You can avoid the pain of renovating and building this yourself (believe me that’s a good 2 years of your life for a home of this quality) and become the lucky new owner of this home!

This Luxurious Leederville Home is up for Auction with Abel Property on Saturday 24 June 2017. I would definitely recommend getting along to one of the home opens to have a look and I’ve heard they hand out free coffee on auction day πŸ˜‰ View the listing details here!

The beauty of wallpaper.Β 

Ever have that feeling that something is missing from your room but you can’t quite put your finger on it? I recently felt this way about the study nook in my new home. Then I came back to a past love – wallpaper!

I first used wallpaper four years ago in my old home on the back of a TV wall. This was a paintable wallpaper with a texture so was a safe option for my first time. I figured I could just paint over it if I didn’t like it. After trying it out and loving it, I have used it time and time again. I have a fantastic wallpaper installer who has over 35 years experience and he is the only person I would ever get to install it for me (contact me for his details). He is great at matching up the pattern and ensuring a seamless finish. I can definitely say I wouldn’t attempt to install my own wallpaper but if you are game – good luck!

Let’s take a look at my study nook before…Β 


The study nook is an open area at the top of a staircase.

I chose to add a grey cement look wallpaper to define this area. It was ordered online through Ali Express – a cost efficient way to order wallpaper direct from the overseas wholesaler. There are many wallpaper websites online and some offer samples if you are unsure about ordering a full roll. I required 3 rolls of wallpaper for this space. Wallpaper Direct UK have a great wallpaper calculator on their website.

And here’s my after!Β 


After adding my furniture back, I can say it was definitely the piece of the puzzle that was missing!


I also chose to use this wallpaper on an inset wall at the end on my hallway, which helps make the artwork pop.


I hope seeing my wallpaper encourages you to try it out!
