The Beach Bach Progress

Wow!  Look at this old girl she really is starting to shine!

This week we added a trellis foyer to the front entrance.  An initial tidying up of the front garden has refreshed the house and  opened her up to the lovely northen light.   I can't wait to get stuck into creating a new garden,  the choice of plants can really make a difference.  I'm thinking of hydranges in front of the trellis, agaves under the right front window, and big old stags on the trees.  Yeah! I'm excited so far!  If you have just popped across and thank you if you have, take a peek here of the before's.

 I love the space the trellised foyer has created, a with minimum cost I have added an outdoor room which will be perfect for a morning coffee, and a bit of a read, Nah!  a bottle of bubbles in the afternoon will do just fine!   Im thinking deck chairs, tall white pots with lush plants..........Any suggestions?

As you can see there are a few colours going on here?  I just can't decide?  I think I am leaning towards the lemony/limey colours.  What do you think?
The existing stairs have been removed and  today we put in the footings for the deck.  I am expecting the new sliding doors to arrive this week, then open sesseme, the lounge area will enjoy a beautiful vista of the lush back garden .
