welcome to the farmhouse

Hello.
Welcome to Ruby Hills Organics farmhouse.
Sit down with a cuppa. She's a long one!

this is one of my favorite spaces it is inviting and clean.


the kitchen seems to be functioning really well and I still have loads of cupboards and places to fill!




look closely out the window - those are my little veggie patch boxes!

Okay... Here we are going to do some before and after's.

The kids space has been a bit of a challenge, but I've worked on it today and I'm pleased how it is coming up..  I've chucked a lot of things, and organized "spaces" for reading, for cars, for playing together, for playing alone....






and... what do you do when you have a house without any built in wardrobes? Make a room that has strange energy a wardrobe.  This one happens to link to both the kids room and to our room.  Here it is...




and the before of our room...

we've been busy little bees round here for the last month.  we have a lovely girl "woofing" with us - she's been great to have around with a really easygoing spirit..

here's another shot of this kids room. 

Lots of crap to still find a home here. But - it's a happy, aesthetically pleasing home for us now!

Happy days..

Amazing Amy! Absolutely bloody fantastic! Your kitchen looks so good, love the white with timber bench (my dream kitchen). Have you lined the pantry shelves with oilcloth? Something I'm considering in our new house...y'know when we build a pantry LOL The kids room looks aaaamazing, such a great space for them, I am loving the bed with the canopy, where's it from? You're making me all excited to do a similar post soon hopefully, we move this Friday eeeeeek!

Brilliant job Amy! Haven't had a chance to check out your blog for awhile, so it was a big surprise to see you in your beautiful 'new' house - what a transformation! Love the recycled doors too. Isn't it a good thing you guys haven't had to be milking cows, feeding chooks, collecting eggs, looking after children etc at the same time as decorating!! ;)
