No longer just fantasy decorating...

While things in our own house move along at the usual snail-like pace (focusing on external maintenance at the moment, tedious, but got to be done), I do have another little project that is looming into view.

I will gloss over the detail of how we aquired it (as, to be honest, it's a painful story and it wasn't necessarily through choice!), but we are in fact owners of a holiday apartment in a small place called Tala, near Paphos in Cyprus. For various reasons, it has stood empty since being completed around 18 months ago, but finally we are in a position to start to think about getting it kitted out and hopefully getting some use out of it.

At the moment it is just an empty shell:

Kitchen cabinets

Open Plan Kitchen/Diner/Living Room

Living through to bedrooms

en-suite bathroom

...although kitchen cabinets and two bathrooms are "set".

We are off to visit the place in a few weeks, although there probably won't be time to do much, we will at least try and work out what will need doing in future (shopping!!).

In the next few posts I will share a few ideas and inspirations for the general feel I would like to create, as well as ideas for each of the different rooms. As eventually we might possibly consider renting out the apartment, I'd love to hear what other people think, so am always up for ideas and creative feedback!


  1. First off, paint the cabinets in the kitchen. :-) Other decorating ideas? Wow! I could have a field day :-) Can't wait to see what your inspirations are.

    1. Thank you! I'm really excited, it's the first time I've really had to think about something like this completely from scratch.
      As for painting the kitchen cabinets - I totally agree, I personally would have preferred white or pale blue. Unfortunately, because of the distances/time constraints involved I don't think it's going to be a priority, more's the pity.

  2. Erm.. Can I put in a booking for some point in the future please??!!! :)

    1. Absolutely - I think special mates' rates will be in operation for a while, payment in furniture and appliances! ;-)
