A few years ago my boyfriend and I pulled all our pennies together and bought ourselves a little family adobe. It was a super daggy little place, but when I saw it I fell in love with its ‘potential.’

After some serious saving and living off baked beans for some time; we kicked off our first ever reno. I am beyond in love with our pad.

I called on the help of Jess Bettenay from Resident Avenue to help turn my blank canvas home into something a little extra special. Jess is an Interior designer and decorator as well as being a pretty ace product designer. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could get an interior designer to help me. It sounded like something only the filthy rich do. However, when I was picking Jess’s brain for ideas, she made me realise that with her knowledge and access to great deals, I was actually going to save money using her.

Jess gave me the courage to make bold decisions with colours and items I would never have chosen on my own. She sourced great items I never would have found or even thought of putting in the mix.

We film all our On The Couch chats at my place and I feel really proud inviting people over to show off my home.

Below are before are after pics of my place.

    Love it! The dining table and benches in particular caught my eye, gorgeous! PS how great is it to call in the profs – so many people baulk at spending the money but it is so much better because you can make some very expensive mistakes on your own! I

    OMG! How gorgeous. Am intrigued as to how you changed the colour of your floorboards from orange to blonde? I want to do the same thing at my house but nervous re. Cost! Thanks Monty.
