Home Beautiful - - HOMES -

Who lives here?

Carly, a bal­let teacher; her hus­band Gary, an ac­coun­tant and busi­ness ad­viser; their chil­dren Jack, 10 and Scar­lett, six; and Gigi, the chi­huahua, Pixie, the fox ter­rier and El­lie, the cat­tle dog.

Best ren­o­vat­ing ad­vice?

Gary: “Don’t live through the ren­o­va­tion; ei­ther move out or don’t move in! It was great to be on site most days but be able to go home to a fully func­tion­ing house.” Did you agree on all the choices? Carly: “Thank­fully we both love blue, so when we were choos­ing ac­cent colours and soft fur­nish­ings with Leanne we were both drawn to the same op­tions.” Favourite spot?

Carly: “Def­i­nitely the deck and the back garden.”
