an exciting project

Just as Petite Violette is winding down for the summer months, so too is this exciting project Grant and I have been working on for the last 6 or 7 months. We started renovating the attic space above our apartment in December, and hopefully we can move up there in the next 4 - 5 weeks.

It's been a huge project - we completely gutted the space and ripped out a bad 80s renovation that gave absolutely no hint about the beautiful old beams and brick walls that were hidden behind dodgy walls and low ceilings.  We can't wait till it's finished and even though it's fun to choose tiles, paint, kitchen cabinets, etc, it will be a huge relief once it's over!


  1. wow.... what a fantastic looking space!
    Cannot wait to see how you finish it, Sam...

  2. Indeed, what a wonderful achievement and home improvement! Looks like very rewarding work. And I too can't wait to see how you furnish/decorate it. Guess it'll be 'watch this space'? XX

  3. Don't know how u find the energy to do this as well as having your family and the shop to look after! Looks like a great space you've discovered and I'm sure it will be fabulous when you've finished ! Well done sam! Xxdi

  4. Awesome Sam! What a beautiful space to have access to. Share some pics when it's done?
