I didn't photograph the walk in robe, but will get to it this week. Otherwise, that's it. Our home tour - 2013. Do you photograph your house to document the changes as the house evolves? Despite the fact that it seems to take forever to make progress on the inside of a house, when you look back at photos you almost always are reminded of how far you have come.


  1. You have a lovely home.. but it definitely needs some colour! have fun sprucing it up.. I am desperately wanting my own house again (we rent) so I can decorate and unlease my inner stylist!

    1. Thanks Amanda. A bit of colour here and there should do the trick. Renting can be really tricky!

  2. Can you come and style my home :)
    Looks beautiful!!

    1. Thanks Elyse. There is not much that I love more than decorating ;)

  3. Default Font Size, Larger Font Size, Largest Font Size. Home · About the Campaign · Our Themes · Our Logo · Our Structure · Our Partners · Calendar of Events. Automa├žo

  4. Good luck to everyone who does the job! Education in the East Asia is really important now. I want to recommend the great website for guys and girls who need some rest. here you can free chatting with people around the world without any limits! Just upload your photo and choose the partner. You will love it, just try!

  5. What really sets a home projector apart from a TV is the fact that a it can project an image onto a wall or screen that is up to two hundred inches when measured from top left corner to bottom right corner across the diagonal..
