This is the life

Australian House & Garden - - Houses -

The McIn­tyres now make the most of ev­ery room. “We of­ten use the open fire­place in the living room – it’s so lovely and cosy in win­ter,” says Kate. “We like to get to­gether as a fam­ily and watch a movie or game of rugby.” The open-plan kitchen/din­ing area is also pop­u­lar. The chil­dren of­ten do their home­work at the din­ing ta­ble or watch TV as Kate pre­pares meals. “The light and colours make it a happy space to be in.”
