When mov­ing from their old to new home, Sue and Ian en­joyed buy­ing items that would have been out of place in their farm­house. “Re­ally, we were fur­nish­ing and dec­o­rat­ing all of the rooms from scratch, for a new home that was con­tem­po­rary in style,” Sue says. In­spired by flick­ing through mag­a­zines and vis­it­ing fur­ni­ture show­rooms, the cou­ple mixed bud­get buys and eBay finds with pieces from more ex­pen­sive stores. “Some­times an Ikea piece would fit the bill and other times we’d splurge on some­thing more exclusive, like the din­ing set­ting from Space Fur­ni­ture,” she says.
