Recently I was conducting a Space Clearing for a client who reported feelings of “stuckness” and lack of flow in some rooms of her home. In one room, in particular, I found myself quite “stuck” in a corner, like I couldn’t move out of the spot I was in.
By opening adjoining walls, we enabled a dual zone fireplace to link both the casual and formal dining zones – a welcome connection of spaces when entertaining with family and friends. Here we chat to Tina about the renovation.
Sharing some thoughts on this room designed for my two youngest, and how it came together with the Editor of Minty Magazine, Sarah Davies.
Thats the second person today to come in and say, “I’ve had a designer out, but I didn’t like what she was recommending.”
And thats ok, we don’t always hit the nail on the head first time round, or sometimes even the second time. But its the next bit that bothered me: “It just didn’t feel right.”
And that’s the crux. Home is a feeling.
When living with kids, bridging the gap between adult and all-inclusive child living can be achieved, and the results leave a space feeling calm, organised and cohesive.
It feels not that long ago that we renovated our tiny two bedroom miners cottage and created a still small, but comfortable, 3.5 bedroom home. The point-five room was always intended to be used as our master ensuite (when the inevitable time and money permitted). However, instincts of our family of four not ‘being done’ finally won out. Against all logic of having way too much going on in our life, we went ahead anyway and added to our little family.
We believe defining the style of a home needn’t stop at little ones rooms.
