New Shutters & Curtains from Anna Spiro

Welcome to a new week and a new month at Natasha In Oz! I can't quite believe that November is here! We are still prettying up the house and the exterior paint work is looking gorgeous but my favourite feature from "Operation Pretty" are our new Shutters and Curtains from Anna Spiro.

I have been blogging about and posting lots of pictures of our kitchen renovation lately. The aim of the kitchen renovation was to open up the lounge/dining/kitchen areas of the house. We knocked down the 2 walls you can see in the following picture to do this!

Here is a picture of the area without the walls.

When we had finished knocking down walls etc and were left with the kitchen of my dreams, we realised that our window treatments were all wrong and needed changing. The kitchen was all soft and grey so the brown tones you see below just didn't flow.

The brown is way too dark and heavy and is clashing with the grey.

So, what to do...????

Well, to cut a long story short, (as my mother always says) following a wonderful trip to London last Christmas where we stayed at a charming and beautiful place called the Draycott Hotel in Chelsea, we decided to try and recreate a little bit of London in our little Aussie home.

Here is our inspiration...

Our room at the Draycott on Christmas morning.

This was where Maddy and Big Al slept.

 This is the library/sitting room


Here is the drawing room where afternoon tea is served every afternoon and champagne is served every evening.



The charming ambiance of The Draycott was the inspiration for our new English look.

We really love our new shutters and curtains from Brisbane Interior Designer Anna Spiro. We think everything looks a little bit "English" now!

I am so happy with our new shutters and curtains from Anna Spiro, I get so much joy from cooking in my new kitchen and I love entertaining in our open plan area.

I'm sure you must be getting very bored looking at all of my renovation photos....I promise I will post some NON-kitchen photos next Met Monday...I am sure that they will have a Christmas flavour to them!

Wishing you all a wonderful November.

Best wishes,

Natasha In Oz
