    Great, fun post.

    You have the cutest kitchen and your bookshelves remind me of mine. I keep having to adapt because the books keep coming.

    I’m lovin’ the book-Tetris; very mod.
    And the kitchen? Everything you described it to be, and more :] And so much counter space! Jealous…

    Smurf Kitchen is smuk, indeed. And I wouldn’t trust anyone who didn’t have too many books. But maybe that’s just my book-nerdiness showing. 🙂

    Haha! I love sex and the city. It is funny how we are so used to remotes it takes a few seconds to realize things can generally operate OK without them.

    Ha, I’m loving the kitchen – makes you just want to spend time in there!

    ah, Hannah, what a lovely post.

    and you are right, it definitly isn’t up to standard! tisk tisk. but IKEA next week…sweet, sweet IKEA…

    Congratulations on your new smurf kitchen! And I personally love the book stacks. I think there is something aesthetically perfect about haphazard stacks of books — but that may be because I am a uni nerd and I own little besides books…

    I love the kitchen, that blue is probably my fav colour!

  9. Hannah

    Thehungryscholar: Thank you! The kitchen played a big part in my wanting this place 🙂 And sure, accumulating books can be tricky space-wise, but what fun is life without them? 😉

    Amber: We really are lucky with the counter space – I can’t believe we’ve fit in extra shelves, a kettle, a toaster, an espresso machine, and a microwave, and we *still* have room to chop!

    Camille: Even if it is book-nerdiness, I completely agree. I remember going to a guy’s place once and wandering around in absolutely confusion – there was not a single book anywhere, and I knew I had to get out quick-smart 😉

    Stacy: “OK” being the operative word – we couldn’t do anything but play it start to finish with Dutch subtitles… but we survived!

    Simply Life: I’m pretty sure the kitchen is going to be our hub!

    Ellie: That’s the real reason I’m home for a few days. Not to look after the dog, but to avoid your hideous decorating scheme 😀 😀 I jest – you know I love you.

    Theresa: I completely agree! I love the jumbled look – I feel like I’m (almost) living in Black Books and if I just close my eyes and wish really hard, I’ll open them to find Bernard on my couch.

    Kristy: One day you’ll have to come visit Canberra and I’ll cook you something vegan and gluten-free in the favourite-colour-of-yours kitchen 🙂

    Hannah your kitchen is Smukky! And don’t worry those things are exactly things that I would do. Actually the fact that I do them is probably not a great argument 😛

    Love the kitchen – I’d call it Reckitts blue as I’m not ‘up’ on this Smurf character. Also, as a Queenslander, through and through, I think the pineapple dip and server just perfect. I’m sure I’d love EBH.

  12. Hannah

    Lorraine: Thank you! And sure that’s a good argument, because there’s sanity in solidarity, right? Right? 😀

    GmaSydney: You shall have to google Smurf, just as I had to google reckitts blue 🙂 You’ll have to come meet EBH then! You’ll probably love her more than me because she knits….

  13. Kath Lockett

    Gorgeous blue! Still so luminous!

    And the bookcases are rather impressive – I remember using bricks and planks of wood several aeons ago…..

  14. Hannah

    Kath: It’s amazing how bright it is, considering the general wear and tear of the place! Eek, wouldn’t bricks damage the books?

  15. Johanna

    That is a very smuk blue – love the smuk smurf kitchen and your tetris bookshelves – every time I see someone else’s bookhselves I want them because we never have enough here – and as for missing remote controls, we often experience them – Sylvia loves to play hide the remote (or the troll, as they are often called in our house). Good luck with the smurf kitchen

  16. Hannah

    Johanna: Thank you! I can’t wait to cook all sorts of smuk-appropriate foods in Smurf Kitchen – hopefully integrating some of your delicious baked goods along the way! I think, for anyone who loves reading, there can never be enough shelfspace. Particularly when you start factoring in cookbooks too…

  17. Johanna

    oh don’t start me on space for cookbooks – there is never enough!!!!

  18. Agnes

    Hehee, smuk. You know, you could be lying and smuk could mean something completely different. How can we trust you? You have a smurf kitchen and a pineapple chips and dips server!

  19. Hannah

    Agnes: Oooh, I’d never thought of that! What if I’m making you utter profanities without telling you? Or, even better, I could start making up words and telling you they’re from a foreign language. BRILLIANT.

  20. Vaala ◪

    I LOVE IT!!! Wow, that is so blue!

  21. Hannah

    Vaala: I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty fabulous 🙂
