Kirsty’s kitchen, featuring her hand-made pendant lampshades… super-clever!

Shelves with cute things…

Lovely light-filled living area. And… does something look familiar..? Kirsty snuck down to 20th Century Scandinavia and snapped up that ‘Prince’ lamp after my little post here! Nice work!

Today finally I get to share another gorgeous Melbourne home! Yippee! This gorgeous place is the home of Melbourne blogger, crafter and Mum – Kirsty of Kootoyoo! Kirsty and her family have only just moved into their fabulous brand new house… and so I’ve been anxiously waiting for the past few weeks to share these photos! :) I am super impressed that her place already looks so fab, even though they’ve only just moved in! (My place still has cardboard boxes in the corner of the living room, ummmm, 2+ yrs later..!?)

Kirsty is one of those incredible busy Mums who seems to somehow find the time to hand-craft many of the gorgeous items you see throughout her home (including lampshades, if you don’t mind!). Not only that, Kirsty shares tutorials of many of her fantastic craft projects here on her blog! (So you, too, can be one of those impressively crafty Mums!). I particularly love her recent collaborative quilt project..! Sheesh. How does she find the time!?

Kirsty gives and receives blog-love left, right and centre… you might have spotted her before on Whip-Up, Meet me at Mikes, Loobylu… and many more Melbourne bloggy crafty places. She’s one popular lady!

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful new home with us Kirsty! You can see more of Kirsty’s home and her crafty projects on her blog and her Flickr. (And Etsy, sometimes, but not right now at this very moment…)

Chairs, chairs more chairs (and a fair few footstools…)

Yes, it’s a designated craft room!

More designated craft room. So tidy. So big. swoon.

Lovely details… top – a collection of gorgeousness from Kirsty’s bedroom – prints by Tsk Tsk, Geninne Zlatkis and Aunty Cookie, bottom left – Cricketelle(?) from Arthur’s Circus, green things in the lovely new bathroom!

Thrifted treasures on the bookshelves

Omigod. Has purple velvet ever looked so good?

Ok I cheated, these shots are from Kirsty’s old house. But I really like to show people’s desks!
