It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! My first ever cold Christmas ❄ and real Christmas Tree. There is definitely something lovely about being on the colder side of Christmas...we will head out to some Christmas markets and maybe ice skating this weekend (although rain is scheduled) . . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation

Another room nearly finished. We did the big tree from cut up pallets we got for free. Such a cool statement piece - oh and adore our @wildandsoft animals 🐯 🐘 on the wall and our @ikeafrance panda 🐼 . . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation

Bought over 150 ancient jars in all sizes from the old owners of our house, all for 30€. Next job on my list is to clean these beauties up, replace any missing seals and turn my pantry into a jar wonderland (got myself a label maker yesterday so these babies are going to be rocking everything I can possibly get into them) Watch this space for some serious #pantry #envy!! . . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation

Got invited to our next door neighbours for Apéritif tomorrow. Apparently you don't take wine or food so got this beauty for a fiver (seriously in NZ I would pay a fortune) add a 50cent pot and voilá! Well plus a box of chocolates coz that's how we roll 🍫 . . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation #aperitif

First lampshade done and up These are something I got inspired by on Pinterest. I saw something similar and loved the scale (super huge) and the fact they are not perfect. To buy something similar they were 400€ for the scale I wanted (500x700) We have a lot of white stonewashed linen in this house so I wanted to carry this through and I wanted the seams to be raw and exposed and frayed a little, I didn't want any straight lines or machined seams. I am super happy with the outcome. This one cost us 12€ . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation #cosywithcasa

Thank you @ikeafrance for inventing a 10m length of seriously cool drawing paper for kids, Mr 4yrs old just loves all the detail and the monsters and especially the 💩!! Literally hours and hours of fun and that means free time for Mum!! #coloringin #freetime . . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation

Gorgeous linen fabric for our DIY light shades I wanted a particular look and the closest I could find were €400 per shade, which is absolutely not in our budget so I decided to try my luck at DIY Watch this space... €70 on fabric €55 on metal frames End result should be 9 fabulous shades 💡 #diy . . . . . . . . #Relocation #france #movingtofrance #paris #charentemaritime #familyoffour #opportunity #whynot #inspo #livingthedream #effieltower #nztofrance #interiordesign #learningfrench #wine #cheese #baguettes #love #family #changes #relocatingtofrance #movingtofrance #kiwi #wine #renovation #maison #reno #diyhomedecor #renovation
