The Couch's waterfront home
Spaces we transformed: Living and dining room
With three busy kids and a newborn, we'll forgive Scott and Jiji for not having loads of spare time to spruce up their home. In a beautiful location overlooking the Panmure Basin, the outdated 1960's Lockwood interior, coupled with an overgrown back garden made it feel like they were literally living inside a tree. The place has lots of natural light and great big windows so the transformation of this interior space along with their new garden was a winner.
Melissa saw potential in the long living and dining space, and by bringing in all new furniture and re-configuring the area, plus the five generous coats of paint to the walls, ceiling and trimmings, the team were able to really bring the room into the current century and create a useable and elegant space for the whole family to enjoy.
What Jiji had to say: "It's just so much bigger being painted white - it really opens the space up - it's so clean and modern looking. You've done a great job - I had no idea this room could be transformed into something like this."
