A creative mix of old and new decor pieces, this bright and airy maisonette underwent changes to make the space more child-friendly while satisfying the homeowners’ requirements. As the homeowners designed the space themselves, they were able to try their hands at decorating.

rooms, dining, kitchen, walls, hack, change, homes,
To make the home bright and airy, the first-floor bedroom was knocked down to create a semi-open-plan family space. It also enabled ventilation and sunlight from the rear of the kitchen to reach all the way to the front. Glass blocks conceal the laundry while maintaining a look of openness. 

living room, vintage, stylish, homes, chandelier, retro
A classic chandelier was mixed up with a retro wall clock, a crafted bench from Thailand and colourful cushions and Ottoman in her living room.

light wood, tables, stools, vinyl floor
Wood-looking vinyl floors look just as nice as the real wood bench and stool. 

The master bedroom is a quirky mix of second-hand and Habitat furniture as well as DIY ideas. The headboard was done using fabrics from craft stores, and the refinished ottoman was bought from a second-hand store.

Mosaic tiles turn the maisonette into a posh, hotel-inspired en suite.
