We stumbled upon these fabulous photos yesterday whilst on one of our inadvertently-longer-than-expected-but-now-becoming-quite-a-regular-occurrence interweb adventures. The purpose of our search was to find a space we'd want to spend time in; the perfect space to sit, eat, relax, etc.
Our rigorous searching eventually lead us to The Brick House ..............
There's no denying its quite something; the wonderful decor, the fab light fittings, the cosy animal skins, minimal objets d'art ......... not to mention the superb chair choices (très important!). And after a bit more digging, it turns out these photos document a real, on-going, renovation of a mid-century cement brick house built in the middle of 'retirement hell'. The owner's objectives: to make it awesome (check) and stick to the $100 rule. The $100 rule we hear you ask?? Well, it sounds simple: Do not spend over $100 on any ONE item. But, yikes, that's only £62ish. What?!
To see how its done, take a sneeky-peek at The Brick House; its a wonderful read, full of fascinating design tips and step-by-step renovation insights. We're addicted!
