My name is Georgina. I am Australian. I recently relocated to Greenwich CT after 6 years living in New York City. I live with my partner John and our two sweet girls - 4 year old Charlotte and almost 2 year old Alexandra. Oh, and let's not forget the fur-baby Winston. Welcome to my corner of the internet. I hope you brought cake.

Before and After: CHARLOTTE’S BEDROOM

Technically it’s not finished because it still needs a rug but I suspect no room will ever feel finished so here are some before and afters. Charlotte was upgraded to a “big girl” bedroom so that her furniture could be moved into Alex’s bedroom. I really wanted a bedroom that wasn’t too girly or childish. And after the pepto-pink paint we had in her NYC bedroom I found myself avoiding that color entirely. I’d also love to get some of the dolls and teddies out of here for a cleaner look but I have to make some concessions for my 2 year old who loves to have her ‘friends’ nearby!


BEFORE

I can’t decide what I like more - the beach towel curtains or the rug pad with no rug!

THE DETAILS

I tried to be as detailed as possible. I did so much research and got lots of inspiration online and it drove me mad when I found something I liked and there was no link or explanation of where it was from.

Before and After: KITCHEN

The first before and after! A whole 4 months after we moved in.

The kitchen is not exactly our style. It’s a bit traditional for my liking. I would love to switch out the cabinetry handles and put in a steel hood above the stove but it rates very low on the never ending priority list.

So in other words we really didn’t do anything to the kitchen other than paint it. But I do think the charcoal paint made a huge difference to the overall look.
