Pinterest and a new thing:

I've been busy on Pinterest lately. Is it wrong to get a high when you see people repinning your pin? Well, here are some items from my boards that had me swoooooooning (Click on source link to be redirected):

So, it's a good thing Printerest is in my life. It allows me to pin online items instead of buying them. I'm on an internet shopping ban until August and even then, I'm disallowing myself to buy anything extravagant. The reason being, well, we've put down a small deposit on a lot of land in Mernda, 30km out of Melbourne CBD. We gave picked our builder, floor plans but now we're just waiting for final financial approval. Then we'll settle and put forth our big deposit and go on with the overwhelming task of choosing tiles, bricks, everything.

Saturday was rainy, I mean, it raaaaained. We drove out to Mernda and got out of the car and walked onto our lot. The mud squelched underneath my birkenstocks (why the heck was I wearing my birks?) but here's the view from our lot:

It sits .75 above the road, so there is a slight slope.
We spent the entire Saturday, driving around and looking at facades, tiles, colour combos and was so pooped. Come Sunday, we did absolutely nothing and Aaron made roasted vegetable soup:

We spent hours upon hours online, looking at colours on walls from Apartment Therapy and Pinterest:

I really really love this bread mould colour on the walls:

We will have to do some vertical gardening because we only have 1.2 meters between the sides of the house and fence.

Since we found so little information about our builder in forums and blogs (we're using a smaller builder), Aaron and I decided to start a building blog of our own.

That is a good slope, not too high and not too low.
Love all your picks!
