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.
