Ready, Set, Dissect.

This is a little game that we played over at The Decorating Forum, but we have decided to make this a weekly Friday feature here from now on.

The Aim:

I pick a room that I think has good and bad elements. It's not a room that everyone will love. But it is a room that I am sure has some great points about it, and some horrid points about it. Not everyone has to like it, and that's the idea of the game.

I want you to tell me what you think - love it or hate it - be honest. Tell me what you think of the furniture, the colours, or what could be added.

It's fun because I encourage you to come back over and read the comments. Some are hilarious! It's interesting to me because what I see is not what everyone sees. That's the beauty of interior design.

So... Ready, Set, Dissect...  Hit me. I would love to see you spew about this room, want to live in it, or graffiti the walls. What do you think? I will pop into the comments section too and add my thoughts here and there.

I will be posting again over the weekend as I have a surprise for you!
So please come back.

Wednesday's Walk-through

Welcome Mel from Mel's Rose Place

Mel has been blogging for a few years now. She is based in the Australian bush and lives in a beautiful home surrounded by wide decks, lilly pilly trees, huge gum trees, fragrant hedges and her rose garden. She lives with her husband and 2 gorgeous daughters. She loves taking pictures of her home and life - things are forever changing. She has some excellent decorating ideas and has collected some gorgeous pieces of furniture over the years. Her basic theme for her whole house focuses on white with accent colours in each room. Mel also gave us a tutorial on how she did the black and white frames on the wall (she printed the images straight from her computer!)This room is my favourite in her house! We have lots more of Mel's house to show you over the coming months.

This is what Mel says about her room:

"I could not decide what colours to do in this room, it has had many changes. Katrina think it was you who said you really liked the blue and black and it got me thinking to try that. Then saw the free black and white print outs from The Paint Place and decided in one afternoon that I would go and get some black frames, print them and put together with some vintage blue plates I bought ages ago.
The couch is a big squooshy one from Bayswiss which takes up a lot of room but is hugely comfortable!
If I could change anything it would be the actual layout of the room - we have a big tv in the opposite corner and because of the site of windows, doors etc there is not enough walls to put furniture against. I am about 90% happy with this room."

So pop over and visit Mel and feel free to ask her any questions about this room!

We are also discussing lots more houses over at The Decorating Forum today.



In conjunction with The Decorating Forum, we are please to present to you the newest blog on the block....

So welcome. We have lots happening. Lots will be unravelled.

Some of you may know me from my personal blog Katrina Chambers.
This is what my blog says about me:
I am a mummy to 3 rascal boys and a wife to a hard-working Aussie bloke. I sell new houses for a building company and we have just moved into our own newly built house. I am obsessed with blogging and tweeting...actually include facebook and my iphone too! I like to think I am in my early 20s, but I don't like to stay up late like a 20 year old. I don't keep much to myself either. I am a magazine junkie and will paint a wall (in my new house!) every week a new colour if I could. I love a project.

This new blog has teamed up with Julie-Ann Hind and her highly successful and Number 1 ranked Google  site, The Decorating Forum. 
This is what Julie-Ann says:
I am a mum to a gorgeous teenage boy, a wife to a very busy man and I run two businesses- no wonder I am busy :-) . I work as an Interior Designer based in Perth. But a huge (and fun) part of my day is spent chatting away on the Decorating Forum which is a forum where we chat about decorating, renovating or building our homes. It’s a tough job but somebody has to do it!

What are we about?

This blog is all about our homes. Original, quirky, fun, or on a budget...nothing will be excluded. You will see a collaboration of our friend's houses, those we like to drool over in magazines, fun games, product reviews and even recipes.

If you have something to share with us, please email us.
Or you may find me knocking on your door too!

Don't be shy and jump over to The Decorating Forum for a chat and some fun.
