The thought of start­ing a new house with a clean slate and only the bound­aries of your imag­i­na­tion to limit you sounds like the stuff of dreams to me. I’m one of those peo­ple who can’t just change a suite of fur­ni­ture or a du­vet set to up­date a room – I have to get rid of it all and start again. I en­joy it but it is ex­haust­ing, so I only rarely do it. Which is why I have to ad­mire Tri­ona and Oisin Lav­ery, who we meet on page 34. They not only built the house of their dreams, they used a ren­o­vated church and over­saw ev­ery­thing from their cur­rent home in Cal­i­for­nia. And the re­sults are in­cred­i­ble. I love the high ceil­ings and the sense of space they give, but I’m also fas­ci­nated with how the cou­ple man­aged to make the in­te­rior look so mod­ern de­spite the fact the build­ing is hun­dreds of years old. I’m trawl­ing the pic­tures for tips. The wed­ding pic­tures they took in the house are also stun­ning – how amaz­ing would it be to be able to have your wed­ding re­cep­tion in your own home? You can see why they both have done so well at Google – they’re clearly gifted de­sign­ers with a wealth of ideas. Un­for­tu­nately, still stuck in a rut of neg­a­tive eq­uity, I’ll have to live vi­car­i­ously through them for now – and browse a few more cat­a­logues... On page 26, we meet some over-60s who, far from avoid­ing tech­nol­ogy, are pos­i­tively em­brac­ing it and put­ting their grand­chil­dren to shame. I al­ready feel like tech­nol­ogy is leav­ing me be­hind and I’ve more than 20 years to go be­fore I catch up on these fab­u­lous ladies! I like to think that by the time I get to their age, I’ll have a lot more time on my hands to keep up with the young ’uns. Al­though I’ll prob­a­bly end up still try­ing to post on a Twit­ter ac­count that’s all but ob­so­lete. En­joy the is­sue!
