So our quest to makeover our Jervis Bay beach house is starting to come together.

See photos of the ‘before’ version here, and see what we bought on a big shopping trip to Ikea here.

This week, painters have been in and I’ll pop down to see how it looks soon.

But in the meantime, here are some photos from a friend’s house. I was so THRILLED when I walked into her place. The house is entirely wood panelled and it’s all painted white. I think it looks fantastic.

I was over in Auckland visiting Helen to celebrate her 50th birthday at the end of January. Helen knows a whole heap of party people and threw a fantastic fiesta.

And I fell in love with her house too.

Helen and I were at boarding school together in Scotland, just a few years ago.

Our paths crossed many times since then, in Sydney in the late 80’s, in Glasgow where we both lived for a few years, and in Singapore too.

Is there anything better than a good friend who you’ve known for a long time?

Yes – one who has some cool stuff in her house.

LOVE this bedroom and the cool colours of the linen.

Love this outdoor furniture too. Duly noted. But I think it’ll take a while to pay the painters’ bill. Maybe then we can start looking at groovy outdoor furniture.

So thank you to Helen for the white house interior inspiration.

And for that excellent weekend getaway with no family.

The chance to be a party person myself!

Cheers

      It’s a gorgeous wee house my friend has got. It gave me great ideas and got me over the hump of deciding about going down the white wood panelling route with our own place.
