Well, I might not be able to start the renovations on our 200 year old cottage until we get back to the UK in August but that isn't going to stop me from making plans! A couple of weeks ago I found this wonderful Danish store Bloomingville, via decor8. My head is full of ideas already and I haven't even seen the place yet! I can already feel a road trip to Denmark coming on!
This will be our new home in England, the sale completed yesterday! We have bought this house from Australia without actually having seen it, I know, totally crazy! My sister vetted it for us and she has exquisite taste so I'm not worried. The fact is, there is very little for sale in England and this was a bargain and it is in the most delightful village, complete with a 1000 year old church a charming pub and a little brook winding its' way through the village, I'm so excited but at the same time I don't want to leave Australia! The time is right now though, my eldest, Alice, finishes school here in Oz later in the year and dearly wants to go to Uni in London, Maisy will be back just in time to start her GCSE's and Jason and I will be able to look after our aging parents, a task we have left to our brothers and sisters for too long!
The house needs some TLC so I'm looking forward to making plans for the renovations. It was built around 1800 and I think a lot of its' features like timber framed walls and inglenook fireplaces have been hidden and I can't wait to see whats underneath. I'll keep you updated!
