Homes for Living
Is your home really for living in?
And do you love to live in your home?
Many clients come to me and say “I spend more time outside the home in places I love to be” or “I just don’t feel at home in my own house”.
In these times many of us do not have the luxury of moving home, extending our living space or renovating and refurbishing our homes. This has created a lot of disgruntled home owners, who have fallen out of love with their homes.
What can you do to change this?
True sustainable design, is to reinvent, repurpose and reuse what you already have
As a professional designer who focuses on this very concept, it is not as hard as you think. It takes a lot more planning to take your existing space, furniture and belongings and reinvent a new design. How easy is it to create a new space from a blank canvas; choosing paint colours, choosing furniture, layout, accessories etc…. most of us can do this with ease.
Now take a house that has maybe become too cramped, too many belongings and odd pieces of furniture, how do you handle this project without tearing your hair out? Brainstorming, planning, lists, charts and good concept design direction.
It is possible to take a family home that you feel you have outgrown, from a cluttered, small and disorganised space into a re-invention of your family life, through simple design ideas, effective storage design, repurposing, recycling, reusing, thinking outside of the box and planning the macro and the micro of the project.
