My Personal Spaces

by Grace Bonney

A more personal post this time. I wanted to show off a few of my at home spaces. I have a little crowded house which will soon be undergoing renovations as we are getting pushed out by kids and their stuff. But despite that I still manage to keep a few corners for myself and my inspiration.

This is an image of our art gallery (above) – all kids art of course.

These porcelain pieces are by my good friend and artist Amanda Schulz whose work is so gorgeous – she is inspired by everyday things.

Here is my red front door – my favourite colour.

And this is my garden – I am slowly changing it over to be in keeping with our drought conditions and water restrictions. I love to potter in my garden space – we recently had these big boulders installed and they are perfect for creating separate garden spaces.

And this is our back yard – the kids recently hung these Tibetan prayer flags which are so colourful, and in the background is my husbands mud oven – used for pizza and bread.
