When I Grow Up….

… I’m going to have a beautiful garden … with maybe a garden-house arrangement … just like this.

What are you going to have when you grow up?

    Right up until the age of about sixteen I moved around the globe as my father was a ‘company man’. I just wanted a room that was mine to decorate as I wished. Of course I got greedy and then wanted a house!

    Something similar but more potting shedish and at the bottom of a large, not too tidy garden. The shed, which would have an open fire because I would never live in a hot climate, would contain an old radio, a lot of vases for the flowers I would pick, and plenty of books to read and re-read. Of course, I would need several Golden Retrievers to help me in the garden and to sit at my feet when the day was done.

    Sigh, a home to call my own (not rented, not leased, but owned by me)!

    Stunning!
    I want floor to ceiling windows and a fireplace. But mostly I just want pitter patters on the floors from children and the sound of laughter 🙂

    We dream of a room for each of the 4 EngineerKids and a study to share. A great room for calm activities. And beautiful gardens with a long paddock. And a llama. I always wanted one. I would settle for angora goats

    I would love at least 5 acres to plant all the trees I lust after but have no room to grow. An avenue of London Planes just to begin with, a shed to keep the husband happy while I sit in my garden with a good book.

About ‘A-M’

This is where I muse about home design, real estate, interiors and life with my boys. I am starting my next house build, 'The Next House That A-M Built', and hope to have some action on site in March, 2017. While I am building I will continue to run my Real Estate agency, 'Cape Cod Residential', through which I stage, style and sell beautiful homes all over Brisbane, Australia. I have an unrivalled staging inventory which enables me to present all manner of homes in their absolute best light for sale. It brings me such joy to be able to do Real Estate so differently and achieve great results for my clients. I am so grateful to be living such a creative and exciting life ... that I have created ... through blood, sweat, tears and physio appointments! A-M xx
