Snap Happy Sunday // Welcome to our new house!

Hello lovelies! It's been about a week since my last blog post, so I thought I would schedule a little house tour post for you today using the photos I saved from the real estate website. I don't know about you guys, but I love looking at photos of empty houses even more than furnished ones - I think I just appreciate the architecture, or perhaps it's the simplicity of the photos. Either way, I hope you guys enjoy looking at these photos as much as I did when we were applying for the house. :)

This is technically the front of our house, although our garage is actually on the opposite side as we are living in place that has dual street access. We even have a letter box on both sides of the house. Very weird!
Our kitchen! I am very happy with the colour scheme and all the modern fixtures. It's a lot more spacious in person too.
Just to the right of the kitchen in this photo you can see a little cut out nook in the wall. This is where I'm going to set up a little tea and coffee bar. :)
As our home is all open plan living, the kitchen is directly attached to this lounge/dining area. That white door you can see on the left of this photo leads to our garage, and the sliding doors lead to our covered back patio.
And here is the back patio! Once we install a doggy door this is where Ellie will have access to the toilet rain or shine. Yay for no more doggy toilet in the house! 
We have a laundry! I can't tell you how good it feels to not have the laundry in our garage or bathroom like we did in our past units. I really love the natural light in here as well, and I especially love that this sliding door takes you directly to the washing line.
Here is the main bathroom. I am excited that we have a bath. I am also excited that the main/communal toilet is separate from the main bathroom.
Here is mine and B's bedroom (there are also two spare bedrooms that aren't pictured). Not only do we have an ensuite (YES!) but we also have a spacious walk in wardrobe. There's nothing like an ensuite and walk in robe to make you feel like an adult!
And here's a shot of our ensuite. Quite small, but lots of natural light. This makes me happy. :)

So what do you think? Are you excited to see another house tour once it's properly furnished?

    1. I know right?! So lucky! We'd never be able to afford a house like this in Brisbane or the GC. :P

  8. Funny it is so lovely! You will make it such a cozy gorgeous place! Can't wait to see. This is very similar colour scheme to my townhouse in Newcastle but the walls in my place are very white. The little brown tiles in your kitchen area are similar to the ones in both the bathrooms :) Look forward to getting updates on your gorgeous little place. So glad you love it and I love the tea/coffee station. xxx

    1. Glad you like our new place Maria! :) The walls are even darker in real life then they are in these pictures, so with the down lights it actually gives the place a similar vibe to a fancy hotel. :P
