CON­TEM­PO­RARY HOME ALI­SON

Homes+ (Australia) - - MEET THE STYLISTS -

Five years ago we pur­chased our ‘for­ever’ home with a huge yard in a lovely neigh­bour­hood. It was a lit­tle dated, but with paint and a freshen-up we moved in and en­joyed it. Then, while we were away, the flexi-hose in the en­suite bath­room burst and wa­ter gushed out for 10 days, flood­ing up­stairs which then col­lapsed onto down­stairs. The en­tire house needed to be gut­ted in­ter­nally and re­built, so it was a great op­por­tu­nity to up­date the whole house. It was one steep learn­ing curve but we had ex­cel­lent builders and tradies.

ALI­SON’S PICK “The cop­per and tim­ber in this Kmart lamp adds warmth and an in­dus­trial feel. Kmart has great on-trend pieces that don’t cost the earth.”
