LAURA & JOE’S HOME
Who lives here? Laura, an accountant; Joe, a chef and restaurant owner; their son, Max, 17; and daughter Talia, 13. What’s one of the top perks of this home? Laura: “I don’t like to admit it, but I don’t have much of a green thumb. I have a tendency to kill things! The landscaping of the garden has been perfectly designed to be low-maintenance, but also beautiful.” How do you see the home changing over time? “The renovation has created a fantastic living space for a family with teenage kids. As our kids get older we’d like to evolve key areas to create spaces for them to study or hang out, and allow us to do our own thing, too.” The most challenging part of the renovation? “Staying true to our much-loved period home while creating something bold and new.”
