This is a story about a major renovation of my family's own dream home. Follow me in my search for the perfect home sourcing finishes and fixtures, altering floorplans and dealing with trades people. Fingers crossed it's going to be fun!

In the Beginning...

So this is the beginning of the story. I'd better introduce myself firstly. I'm Laura and I'm a design addict. I've trained professionally at design school and subsequently began my own interior design & decorating business from home. That had suited me just fine being able to work around the 2 babies that came along. Now, after years of making other people's homes beautiful it's time for our dream family home to materialise. (if only it were that easy!) I've taken a year (or 2) off work so I can focus on family, and our massive project that lies in waiting. We're only at the beginning. Plans have been drawn and a builder about to be chosen.

I guess I started this because I'm a bit of a research freak. I've got so many ideas in my head and it's exciting to be able to do whatever I want and not be restricted by a client's tastes. So in my quest for the perfect detail on every single surface I will be posting my journey. I suppose you'll be a bit of a sounding board too...That's the problem with being in my profession, I have too many options to choose from!

Thanks for tuning in :-)
