Home Tour updated

I have been working on the blog layout, small improvements which I hope will make navigating the website easier for you. The Home Tour has been updated to include quick references of the changes made to the each space of the house. Here's an example:

Hovering over the images will reveal the product sources for some of the main items in each space:

Do you like? Working on this page has reminded me of all the projects I need to get onto. One project I would like to tackle soon is to have the kitchen ceiling re-done. The current ceiling is suspended ceiling with a gap between it and the cornice.

Perfect space for creepy crawlies to crawl through and ATTACK US!

I exaggerate a little but I would like to fix this and it would be nice to also add a bulkhead above the cabinets to create a cleaner look. I'm receiving quotes at the moment and then I will need to prioritise the projects.

If I had money to spare I would work on a few other areas of the kitchen to improve the look of it but those plans are lower priority at the moment.

I would love to know what you think of the new Home Tour!

    That is so clever. Your home is absolutely gorgeous, and what you've done on your Home Tour is brilliant! My only complaint is that shipping from Australia to NZ is so expensive for when I'm shopping in all the stores you've featured.
