"The baby marking her territory. Here's a nearly complete shot of the galley kitchen in our camper! We're living out here this week while @just_mccrea is on spring break. Then next week this big girl goes to the garage to get her 32 year old body brought up to par for the road! We LITERALLY cannot believe this project is nearing its end. Tonight we're going to pop a bottle of champagne and 🥂 to our hard work." Post by @themotorhomememoirs

When we moved in two weeks ago, I wanted decent furniture and decor everywhere, immediately. The IKEA trips, the rushed purchases, all of it. It just didn't feel like home. But now that the thick haze of urgency has cleared, I've found myself reflecting lately on what slow living means for a dwelling. I've been shifting my thinking, learning to be content with empty floor space. To gaze at an unfurnished room with calm anticipation, instead of an anxious desire to fill it. To only bring in items that are meaningful and thoughtfully selected. And in times of waiting when we just can't afford something new, to be overwhelmed with gratitude for having this lovely little home at all, and enjoy the longer process. So, our small selection of furniture is still what we had in the basement suite. The walls are mostly bare. But as I opened the windows this evening to the breeze, put away my phone for a while, and simply sat in the dappled light, I began to realize... that this will always be home as long as I embrace it to be.

We don't have these up in the shop yet, but couldn't wait to start sharing. Lots of hands in this project so excuse the @ @ @. Heavy duty organic hemp via @jungmaven (feels like linen, softens to perfection with age) dyed by @jalama.dyes (who also happens to be a kick-ass stylist). She used Coastal California Eucalyptus in this one. They smell SO GOOD. The rest are native plants (except for the psychedelic hot pink cochineal) in a collaboration with natural home & body fragrance company @juniperridge. Their art director & photographer @jordanvouga pulled the vision together beautifully. They are all queens 👑 for this first run and you'll feel like one wrapped up in this. Duvet, sheets and pillow cases. Let us know if you want one!

Today's tip: THINK. Before you speak today practice THINK. Meaning, are your soon to be words thoughtful, honest, intelligent, necessary and KIND. It's harder than it looks. Usually the last two requirements stunt people, but kindness is an important part of nurturing our relationships - an important part of designing your best life 🕊

"We've added climbing holds to our kit drawers and also, spot the fridge... she's a beast! We went for the Waeco CRX80, the biggest out of all the ones we were considering. We REALLY love our food and it will accommodate for when we plan to lose ourselves in the wilderness for days on end. A few more odd jobs to finish then we'll start on the kitchen build. We're under a deadline with our insurance company and want to be finished for our first real trip in September so it's time to a get a wriggle on. Oh and if you're wondering, our cushion covers had to be sent back as they were faulty so for now it's foam only." Post by @camperdreamin

@wearepaperstone recycled Charred Stone cladding emulate's the ever-so-popular charred timber, but is more lightweight, has the durability of PaperStone, and the charring won't rub off!

Brunswick Project black butt wooden stairs have had some livos oil love ❤️ @livosaustralia it's looking great! #livosoil #nontoxic #novoc #naturalfloors #timber #sustainablehome #naturalfinish #chemicalfreeliving #allnatural #homedecor #contruction #lowtoxbuilding #lowtoxbuilder

planning
As we are renovating our forever home we wanted to ensure everything was cohesive. Whilst we are more than capable of making a room look good we felt that we needed a second party to ensure the whole house looked good.
This is where the amazing @bec_tougas came into the picture.
Bec started by putting together a long term floorplan for us which involved afew walls being moved and some weight being shifted in the roof. Whilst this isn't in our budget right now we are able to work on smaller projects to get us working towards that goal.
Phase one was set so that we could move in. This involved gutting the house (the whole kitchen, old floors, sanding, stripping wood, painting, sealing and fixing the leaky roof) we then took on an exciting project; removing a half wall in the kitchen and refitting the kitchen.
Phase one is near completion. This took us nearly three months!!!! Ekkkk. Two mortgages killed us for awhile there but our little rental is now occupied and we are already in our forever home.
We have lots more to do before we tackle the next step- the main bathroom, but we are more than looking forward to it.
Watch this space for more details, photos and bringing the floorplan to life. 🙌🏻

It's the black putty again! Brunswick Project by @buildstrong_developments

If you've been watching our stories you'd know we've been working on a bench seat this week. It's all done now and sitting happily in our room. It's made from 99% reclaimed materials (the parachute cord and finishing oil were new). Can you guess what the legs used to be? #shousugiban #reclaimedwood #benchseat #sustainablefurniture #brisbanefurniture #sustainablehome

I hope you're out there seizing the day this Friday night. Be it all by yourself or in good company. I'm in bed with my feline babies binge watching THE DEFENDERS. I ❤️Marvel all the way! xoxo Gotta stay true to your 10 year old self 🤓
