Time to get inspired

Well my bags are nearly packed and the boxes are full and now waiting for the baggage excess company to collect. Monday is leaving day and I am very nervous about the adventure ahead. With the rented house a blank canvas to dress I have been looking for inspiration and ideas and found this house in Uruguay via here.

I like the old fashioned oven with the utensils hanging above, not to keen on the floor terracotta quary tiles would have more me.

What I like about this house are the white walls and all the colours from the objects and nic nacks. The homely touches that look like they have all been home hand makes.

Tracey, the lady we are renting the house from, has agreed for us to paint the walls and decorate to add our own touch, so painting all the walls white will be our first step. The only things in the whole house is an oven and a dishwasher so it should be entraining and a challenge to decorate on a teany tiny budget. From the pictures I have seen of the house the main floors are dark wood so white painted furniture will look fabulous. I will be posting our 'Make do and Mend' house adventure and home made craft projects regularly, I am going to have to be very strict with myself and make sure I spend plenty of time on designing for Cavania and not just decorating.
