Inside Out (Australia) - - Things We Love -

An up­com­ing build is no ex­cuse for let­ting your style slip. Cre­ate a few beau­ti­fully styled vi­gnettes through­out the house so that it feels co­he­sive and pulled to­gether. “The best thing about ac­cent pieces is that you can re­ally change the feel of a room with them. I don’t ever feel like a space is fin­ished un­til it has lay­ers of smaller pieces, and some green­ery,” says Dar­ren. Play­ing the wait­ing game be­fore you start a big reno can ac­tu­ally im­prove your plans. “I didn’t have a vi­sion for the place when we moved in, but as we’ve lived here it’s be­come much more ob­vi­ous what we need,” says Dar­ren of his plans to open up the home to bring more light into the liv­ing area. He also wants to cre­ate a larger kitchen with an is­land bench – cur­rently, the cook­ing zone in­cludes this lit­tle nook. “At this point, it’s all crys­tal clear in my head,” says Dar­ren. “I walk around the house men­tally tick­ing off the things I want to do – I’ll be able to draw it up ex­actly when the time comes.”
