The indoor garden...

The entrance of my home is a lovely wide brick paved foyer.... but it was leading up to an indoor garden....this just doesn't work when you have 5 cats - it really had to go.

To our surprise the garden had no when straight down under the house - which was so impractical in a leafy suburb like ours.....perfect termite territory.

Time for our first project !!

........ in keeping with the exotic Mediterranean feeling of this home I sourced some amazing hand painted Spanish tiles  from a company in

I couldn't go past the colour in these tiles.

We dug out the garden.....and put in a concrete base ready to be tiled. 

We are building a internal water feature aghhhhhhhhh !!!!!

Mi Casa.....

Here was my new home 12 months ago, I fell in love immediately although we were not really ready to move on yet - fate had other ideas !!  Soaring ceilings and rustic appeal - the house has an amazing feeling that everybody 'just gets'.

After 1 year of settling in and making it our own - its a wonderful space that I am proud to call home.

There was an actual garden and water feature in the entry, with five cats this was the first thing that had to go :)

More soon.....
