“FAC­TOR IN YOUR LEAD TIMES FOR THE GOOD STUFF”

Inside Out (Australia) - - Homes - SARA HIN­GLE, HOME­OWNER

Or­der­ing fit­tings, fix­tures and ma­te­ri­als well in ad­vance isn’t some­thing the cou­ple were aware of be­fore em­bark­ing on the ren­o­va­tion. “It wasn’t a ma­jor is­sue, but it taught us pa­tience,” says Sara. As a re­sult, the pair will con­sider this for their se­cond phase. “We re­alised that we need to have all the bits and bobs or­dered ahead of time to be ready for the trades to get stuck in when their sched­ules free up.”

POOL AREA With bois­ter­ous boys to keep an eye on, glass fenc­ing gives the yard a stylish, safety- con­cious up­date. A ‘Nat­u­ral In­stinct’ um­brella from Sun­day Sup­ply Co pro­vides shade, with tow­els from Kip&Co. LAUN­DRY (op­po­site) An Inax tile splash­back from Arte­do­mus com­ple­ments the black tap­ware from As­tra Walker and un­der-mounted sink from Blanco. OF­FICE (op­po­site) An art­work found in Bali over­looks Sara’s of­fice, with desk and chair from IKEA.
