Inside Out (Australia) - - Homes Inside -

Who lives here: Dana, a stay-at-home mum; her hus­band, Michael, a CEO; their sons Kai, 15; Indi, 13; Taj, 11; and daugh­ter Kennedy, 13; plus Rebel the spoo­dle.

Style of home: A grand 1920s two-storey Cal­i­for­nian bun­ga­low with seven bed­rooms and three bath­rooms. Af­ter four months of plan­ning, the ren­o­va­tion took 18 months, with a pool added 11 months later. The cost of the ren­o­va­tion $$$$ – in­clud­ing a new roof and roof deck, the in­stal­la­tion of the pool and land­scap­ing – came to $1 mil­lion.

EX­TE­RIOR (op­po­site) Orig­i­nally a faded green, owner Dana de­cided to give the house a more mod­ern look by paint­ing the weath­er­boards in Du­lux Color­bond Mon­u­ment and the front door in Du­lux Ba­nana Boat. BREAK­FAST NOOK This eat-in cor­ner nook in the kitchen fea­tures a cus­tom bench seat crafted by builder Mark Mul­heron, as well as a ta­ble and ‘Eg­gcup’ stools from Mark Tuckey. A pair of Fine Lit­tle Day art­works re­flects the home’s wel­com­ing at­mos­phere.
