Luke and Lou are just about to get married and want to turn their 1960's beach-style bach into their "forever home". The couple are keen DIYers but they've had a patchy approach to renovating and have done half of lots of projects within their home. The view from their living spaces is outstanding so to bring the inside of their home in line with the breathtaking views of the water Melissa chose a fresh beachy style revamp of the living area. 

The project was huge and included stripping the existing flooring and laying new carpet. The walls were treated to a board and batten look with both paint and wallpaper. New curtains and lighting was installed throughout and the space was decked out with new furniture and accessories. The star of the space and hands down Luke's favourite feature was the Samsung QLED TV.

Lou: "I really love the two-tone walls, the warmth from the curtains - the textures, the colours." Luke: "you guys have done such an awesome job...I'm just blown away - it's stunning."
