What makes your House "Home Sweet Home"

Its been a wonderful Easter School break with children doing great games all day outside in the Autumn sun where its still warm enough to don shorts, singlet and sunscreen. Many sleepovers and Easter Eggs later after bbq's and campfires in braziers on the terrace (bit too damp for camping) our Easter break is drawing to a close and so I'm back blogging again.

In the attempt to tidy up after a lovely easter break I am posting these images of a delightful house that was for sale a year ago. I've kept the photos as a reminder of my favourite type of home. And this one is really sweet.

It is on the Northern Beaches on our way to the boat ramp when we take our boat out, very close to the village shops, cafes and water, what more could you want.

Floor plans are extremely useful as they spell out any design boo boos and give you am immediate indication of square feet so you won't be surprised when you go in a place a second time when it always appears smaller.

When you see these kitchen design shops and hear or the thousands people are paying for their kitchen installations - simple is best. This old Queenslander style home has an open kitchen with everything white. Adding to its appeal is a petit chandelier, high ceilings and island breakfast bar.

Adorable and still my favourite kitchen.

Queenslander style homes have that Cape Cod feel and allow the sea air to breeze through the house thus negating the need for air conditioners.

Comfy and airy in summer, though cozy in Winter this main room is filled with large framed retro film posters.

Tell me what makes your house a home I'd love to hear your comments.

Dining doesn't have to be in a separate room..

A long shady porch, easy wicker chairs and palm fronds all add to the delight this house emanates. 

An easy to clean bathroom.

So what makes your house a home sweet home... add your comments below.
