at amy's house...

Felt compelled to take a couple of shots at my friend Amy's place last week as wanted to share a couple of things that she had made and scrummy bits of her house. She found this wood in the junk and along with some pretty knobs and a couple of supports knocked up this fabulous bag/coat rack/hall tidy. Didn't she do a great job! I love the wood colour, what a nice find.
She also made this bedhead. The vintage fabric is gorgeous and sets off the whole room, I want one!
I'm also slightly in love with her kitchen but I think she'd be pretty happy to rip it out and modernise it. I would pay big bucks for this 1950's wallpaper for my kitchen! She probably thinks I'm crazy.
She made us a delicious yogurt and banana cake with cream cheese icing. The kitchen booth is to die for with black and white chequered vinyl top (heaven!) and the contrast 1950's coloured bench seats and walls.
This is our friend Jack and Amy's son Kawaii playing in her playroom. So simply done but a great space for the kiddies.

I don't happen to have a playroom in my tiddly unit but when I eventually move into a big girl's house it's top priority. Who am I kidding? Kitty and the unborn child will probably be graduating university by the time that happens!


  1. Yay. I too am lucky enough to be a friend of Amy's and her house is as awesome as it looks in this photo. And she is one of the most unassuming, practical and inspiring domestic goddesses I know...

    Great blog.. I'll have a look around.. Thanks.
