As the house continues to take shape, I’m starting the arduous task of getting quotes on some of the post handover jobs. On the high priority is to organise the wardrobes.
I’m mentally setting an intention to unpack everything out of boxes and put them away where they belong as soon as humanly possible. After months of living in clutter and organised chaos, I just want some semblance of normality and enjoy the new house and make it our home.
We made the last minute decision to remove the wardrobe fitout from the contract. The standard Metricon offering lacked in style and functionality.
So, what’s on the shopping list?
For the master bedroom, we have his and hers closet space.
Hubby gets the wall adjacent to the bed. It’s over 4 metres wide! That wall is the first thing you see as you walk into the bedroom so we want simple clean lines in a timber veneer finish something like these beauties.
If you were reading the blog last year, you may recall my design dilemma over my walk-in. Well after mulling over some of the fantastic ideas from my awesome blog readers and brainstorming with wardrobe designers, I decided that a U-shape layout without doors would give me the most bang for my buck! I’ve been dreaming about having ample room for all my clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery and all the little trinkets I’ve accumulated over the years!
I’m also seriously considering this glamorous pendant for my walk-in. I’ve had a serious lusting for it since I saw it featured in Michael and Carlene’s winning powder room on The Block.
For the girls’ bedrooms, we’re going to keep it simple and classic. The plan is for miss 9 year old and little miss 2 year old to each have an L-shape layout with drawers, shelves and hanging rails in their walk-in closets. Think timeless white, unassuming and functional.
Miss 14 year-old fashionista is old enough that she wants to collaborate with me on designing her bedroom. She likes a monochrome decor and mirrored built-in robes. A quick Pinterest sesh gave us some inspiration pics.
