A Room with a View and a Blog Makeover

While I patiently wait for Metricon to finalize our plans for council submission, I’ve been at pains to keep myself busy and distracted by trawling the web for inspirations for our master bedroom.

Although we spend relatively little time in the bedroom, it is the one room in the house we can truly call our own. It is our haven, our sanctuary, the place we escape to for relaxation and recharging the body, mind and spirit. Ironically I got a bit distracted during my Pinterest hunt and I found myself being awed by images of bedrooms with views to die for!

So, I let myself daydream a little and visualize what it’d be like to have a personal space with such panoramic, mind-blowing views.  How cool would it be to wake up every morning to a spectacular sight and revel in the beauty of nature?

 The mother of all ocean views…the hubby and I scuba dive and I can’t think of anything more relaxing than taking in the beauty of the underwater world. I bet I’d be waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated at the sight of the beautiful coral reef and amazing sea creatures.

No water views but just goes to show what’s possible with an elevated aspect. Love the glass wall and circular peek-a-boo windows.

And now for a view that’s sure to get the heart racing? How’s this for an enticing, sleep-inducing personal sanctuary? I think a hell YES to the views but can we please set the house a lot further back!


Would you dare sleep here?

If you’ve popped over my blog before, you will have noticed a change. I’ve decided to give my online sanctuary a makeover with a pop of colour. When I started the blog, the idea was to create an online diary to document our building experience. I didn’t expect to enjoy blogging as much as I do but I love the interaction and connection it’s afforded me. It’s allowed me to connect with fellow house builders I would never have come into contact with who have shared valuable tips and advice along the way. I’ve discovered Pinterest, Polyvore and other handy tools to help with the building project. It’s also been wonderful to read about and learn from the journey of my fellow builders. Suffice it to say, I’m so glad I took the plunge and started my blog.

    Somehow I missed this post earlier. I love the new blog look. I can relate to your taste in bedrooms. We are lucky enough to be having a water view from our master bedroom, but the trick is to maintain privacy without obscuring the view. Not that easy.

      Thanks Joanne. I love the splash of colour but I’m still getting used to the new layout. I’ve been using my trusty iPad as my Mac was accidentally put in storage and there’s no getting it out before moving date:( I thought of your house by the water when I wrote this post. I look forward to seeing your room with canal views.
