Those of you who get Resene's Habitat magazine might have seen this image from our stairwell though. And this, encouraged by the fine folk at Resene, has spawned the love child of BuildingBoxes. People of #newbuildlove, meet BoxBlocks.
Born of a love of putting words and pictures in the same box and shaking them up, BoxBlocks is art with an antique feel but with new timber design - personalised by you. Spurred on by a lust for colour, a love of quality products, and a desire to be gentle on the earth, we've come up with a selection of BoxBlocks timber poems, images, sayings and punctuation art in a range of colours, tones and finishes.
And for all you DIY enthusiasts, there is even a range you get to work on yourself. The YouCraft range lets you chose your design, colours and layout - completely personalising your timber artwork.
I'll share some of the shots of the house when the mag hits the shelves, but until then, I hope any of you who have just started your build projects, the other's who are part way through, or the others who are just starting to dream about their big project the very best of luck!
