Little More Livres.



It has been a while since I posted!! My Etsy shop has kept me very busy. But I do put my evenings aside to work on the Maison de Livres. I hope to have it finished for my nieces graduation!! I have added a couple of photos of my recent progress. There's still tape on the floor. The room needs ageing and I don't want the floor to get too yukky. A fake door in the back room. Next door to this room is a little room we are calling the Lavender Room. Lavender coming from old French for launder or washing. This room is only a door width wide!! The doors on the corner cupboard aren't actually hinged in. I am a huge hinge fail. So they just pop in and out making it easy to fill. Both rooms have yet to be filled with paraphernalia an stuff. The attic bedroom will be next!!

  1. Hello Carrie,

    I can't believe it's taken me this long to stumble onto your blog considering your a fellow Australian.Your house is just divine and it's good to see that someone else looses time between working on their DH.I look forward to following your progress.

    I just love your Etsy site and I intend to make an order of plates very soon, it's hard to decide which ones to choose.

  3. Hi Carrie
    I'm with Fi - I can't believe I haven't found your Blog sooner!!
    I love your wallpaper and the overall coolness of your rooms. I keeep trying for this kind of look but always end up with the same heavy "british country house" look, if you know what I mean.
    Now, I'm off to read the rest of your blog...
    Have a great weekend

  4. Hey, that looks great! I love how the red and white chair brings so much freshness into this so romantic room!
    (I will keep that in mind as I have the same wallpaper lying here for my girl´s room :-))))) )

  9. Hello Carrie, Lovely blog! This little room is very pretty. I really like the way you have used doors and partitions to create interest.
    For some reason I can't follow your blog as it says the followers gadget has been incorrectly configured...

  13. It's looking really great - I love the suggestion of another room behind the fake door, and the colour is fresh and pretty. I really like the way this house is coming together: it is light and airy with a very harmonious blend overall (Sandie in Sydney)
