The container is located in the back garden, facing the house. Ashby built the deck off the container using the same floor size as the interior.

The super cool interior of the container.


BEFORE SHOT: The container before its makeover.


The container was an old sea freight container and was modified by a company called Addis Containers.


Caron tapped into her love of retro for the kitchen and dining space with a plywood bench and chairs from a school hall.



BEFORE SHOT: The dining area was crammed into a corner before its makeover.


The sideboard in the lounge carries a collection of Crown Lynn.


BEFORE SHOT: The living room was dated and dark.


The lounge area is warm and welcoming with a comfy couch and colourful cushions.


BEFORE SHOT: The dated bathroom.


Utilising the existing tiles and utilities, Caron and Ashby painted the walls dark grey and added splashes of yellow.

The master bedroom has a wallpapered feature wall and is accessorised in grey.


I spotted these cupcakes over at The Weekly Sweet Experiment, and anytime I see something easy on a fabulous decorator blog, I feel almost obligated to give it a try. ?You know, to pretend I’m fabulous too. ;)

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, our opinions tend to vary: from naysayers who claim it’s a commercial holiday invented by postcard companies, to those who sort of cringe but still treat their partners to a little something, and finally the hopeless romantics who go way overboard with the chocolates and flowers plush toys and grand gestures...

With the shifting?season comes the opportunity to make some changes to your home. As we spend longer indoors through the cold, dark months of winter, it’s even more important that it feels like a lovely space. The perfect Fall colour for?your interior, and one of the biggest current interior trends, is brown. Think earthy, warm tones that reflect the colours around us in Nature: damp leaves, firewood, ploughed fields, bare branches, mugs of hot tea, woodland mushrooms, deep dark evenings with big yellow moons.
