August (Oops I'm late!) In My Humble Home

I hope you've all had a great month and are looking forward to spring as much as I am.
This month In My Humble Home I'm introducing to you my new home renovation. She's a lovely, solid 1970's ex-state house and in need of quite a few repairs and some major landscaping! So far a few walls have come out, everything has either been wallpapered or painted and the floors in half of the house have been polished. It's coming together nicely, but is slow progress when you're on a tight budget and you're doing everything yourself. We are over the hump of dust being absolutely everywhere so that's certainly reason to celebrate!

We did however get stuck into the bathroom as it required a complete refit from top to toe. We were totally inspired by a pink/navy/gold colour palette and I'm so glad we stuck with it... truth be told, I did get a little scared! The pink pedestal sink was found on Trade Me and with my special magpie-powers I managed to find gold taps that fit perfectly. 

With such a lovely colour palette the best thing has been the final touches - adding in a Citta Design towel here and there, and discovering some gold goodies like the Futugami towel rail from Everyday Needs and hooks from Douglas + Bec.

Thanks to Your Home & Garden for the lovely pic and featuring it in the latest issue!

See you again soon with the next installment.
