Ooh, already learnt loads! Great thread.
Can I ask though what thoughts are on upgrading with small children? I.e. we could do with new couches, rugs, dining chairs etc but I'm hesitant as toddler + baby seems like a recipe for disaster. I don't really want to be worrying about furnishings.
My only advice is to avoid major trends if possible, otherwise you'll want to change everything in 5 years. It's a trap I've fallen into.

I have the white melamine plastic Eames chairs with wooden legs and I don't love them but they wipe clean and are kid friendly so they're staying for now.
So I'm waiting until both kids are in school before buying new large items so they don't get wrecked (as badly) and as a treat for surviving the pre-school years.
Same with our living room and lounge room rugs (stained, ugly and too small).
I guess the thing is, with kids, you can have all the inspiration in the world to make a room look good but they're always going to have their 'stuff'
