This is the entrance to the house, it looks rather plain from the front but you know what they say, “don’t judge a book by its cover”!
This is my kitchen, with its polished timber floors, stainless steel appliances and simple white cabinetry. We use the kitchen regularly, I love to make breakfast while my husband loves to prepare dinner.
This is where I sit with a cup of tea and gaze out into the backyard where the children play all day long. The windows are hardly ever closed as it’s always warm where we live or else a little breezy.
This is where I work hard at night, writing business proposals and feasibility studies for clients.
Occasionally, you’ll find me upstairs, finding a new book to read or sourcing a reference for a report.
But most days, you’ll find me outside. Reading the paper in the morning with my breakfast, lunch with the hubby while the kids are at school and then after school, watching as the kids run around the backyard.
Sorry I couldn’t find any photos of the bedrooms and living area, it’s all a big mess since we repainted the place!
*I wish it were my home. Maybe one day in the future with the man of my dreams. Images sourced from my pinterest board ‘dream home’.
The view from North Fremantle
Lately, I’ve been finding myself looking on real estate websites, dreaming about living near the coast. This one house in particular (the one above), I am absolutely in love with. It’s overlooking the swan river, the main river in Perth, it’s 5 minutes walk from my favourite beach, Port Beach & it’s just all round amazing.
Here’s two other photos of it:

Now…..where did I put that $5 million dollars I had?
Transformers fans prepare to experience the sting of jealousy. The Safe House is a veritable cement transformer, a home with the capacity to achieve maximum security while affording the ability to open up and transform into more vulnerable states. Architecture firm KWK Promes left no security issue untouched when they designed and constructed the 6,100 sq. ft. fortress. In order to penetrate the Safe House you would need to match all the required security entrance codes. Upon entrance, one would wait in the ‘safety zone’, an area bordered with concrete walls, before being let inside the house. When the home is in its closed state, it is reminiscent of a large concrete Rubik’s Cube. When in its open state, a draw bridge lowers, connecting the home to the indoor swimming pool, movable walls open, mobile shutters come up, and a rolling aluminum gate raises opening the home to an expanse of garden views. The entire home transforms with built in electronic engines, which means the house opens and closes with the touch of a button!
Now, where can I get one of these and how much will it cost me? I know I’m aiming big here but that house is pure genius.
These images remind me of New Zealand so much. My house growing up, my friends various houses and holiday homes etc. I absolutely adore this simple style, it just gently whispers ‘peaceful’.
As I was walking out the door tonight, my father presented me with a thought, something I still haven’t stopped thinking about, 6 hours later. I’ve had to change my mind a lot over the past 4 weeks. After I learnt I couldn’t get a student loan, I decided it wouldn’t be easy to save for Europe next year as well as tuition fees so I got used to the thought of traveling after uni. Then tonight, my dad told me about a property investment that is within my reach. I’m going to university so I can be a successful property tycoon (majoring in property valuation) so you can imagine why I can’t think straight right now.
Obviously there’s nothing to doubt about this idea & what an amazing opportunity I could have but my life has changed direction once again since I got back 5 weeks ago, who’s to say it won’t change again?
I think I’ve found a new direction, the piece to my missing puzzle.
After struggling through my first week of adjusting to full time work & study, I only need to look at these photographs to remind myself why I’m doing this & why it’ll all be worth it in three years..
Ahh yes, my dream penthouse at night. One day..
