• Plan for the future. We laid a cement slab on top of the new L-shaped section when we first renovated so we can build up a level. This will save us money and it means that we don’t have to move out of the house during the process. We will also go with lightweight steel so we don’t have to use excess water in the process. • When decorating a particular space, find a piece or two that you love and work around those instead of buying a whole new look for an entire room in one go. • Avoid clutter.
What used to be a bedroom is now part of the openplan dining area and kitchen; Cara introduced colour into this space by spraypainting her mother's antique chest of drawers a zesty blue. Dining table from Coricraft; chairs from Pezula Interiors
