“I love ALL OF THOSE pat­terns THAT ARE HAP­PEN­ING WITH THE timber, IT’S BEAU­TI­FUL” ~ EL­IZA

Home Beautiful - - HOMES - CON­TACTS Ar­chi­tect Matt Kennedy, Ar­cke (07) 3180 0287, ar­cke.com.au EL­IZA’S HOME

Who lives here?

El­iza, a ca­reer con­sul­tant; daugh­ter Eva, seven; son Hugo, five; and Peppa the dog. Best in­vest­ment in the ren­o­va­tion?

El­iza: “I def­i­nitely had join­ery creep. We started with more, pulled lots of it out, then as we got closer to the end, lots of it went back in. They said, ‘You say you’ll go back and put it in but you won’t.’ It’s the thing I love the most. It makes it feel more homely but also, in any small house, the more stor­age the bet­ter!” Style lessons?

“It was re­ally im­por­tant to me that we re­tained as much of the in­tegrity of the old cot­tage as pos­si­ble. The ar­chi­tect in­cor­po­rated that with the other part of the brief, which was for a clean, mod­ern style.”
