Loz plans for their style to evolve and change so focused on designing spaces that set the right tone, look and feel. “We wanted to build something that would grow with us when we were ready to have kids but was also small enough that it didn't feel too big for us right now” she explains.
So Loz focused on key areas to create a space that felt like ‘them’ and suited their hobbies, personalities and lifestyle – in particular, the kitchen, living and dining space.
“I love to be in the kitchen, I love to entertain, I love to cook, make a mess, drink with friends around our beautiful dining table. So creating a space that was welcoming for entertaining and also relaxing for when it's just Nick and I, was really important to me.”
The layout of their living space was very deliberate to ensure it had a warm, welcoming, family feel. Having an island bench was key, which they placed next to their dining table, in order to blend those spaces together and be able to “talk to people, whether they're sitting on the couch or at the dining table.”
