  1. Hi
    I love your colours in the kitchen. I have just done my colur studio with MJH and have a simular theme ecept for splashback and flooring. I hope you post some pictures of the finished product :-)

  2. Thank You Jase,

    I managed to get in the other day for a site visit and scored some photo's I'll get them up as soon as I can, snowed under with other stuff at the moment.

  3. Hey betsy.. Nice colours!!! What colour is your tile..i cant quite put my finger on the looks really nice :)

    1. If your talking about the tile that McDonald Jones is supplying it is Mocha from the At Stone range. If your talking about the tile that we are supplying ourselves, I'm sorry I have no idea ~ my hubby has been controlling all of that, I'll try and locate the purchase order and find out for you though.

  4. Thanks for sharing your journey, I have learned so much from you. I have even picked calico beige for my home!! Pls give an update. Are you in yet???

  5. You are very welcome, I have loved writing the blog I just wish I could have got more photos. I'm not in yet, but we are close. I'll be updating my blog hopefully tomorrow.
