Favourite item in your home? Damon: We love the big piece of art on the kitchen wall. Mak’s father was gifted it by the artist and had no space for it. Sadly we are only ‘art-sitting’ but it is perfect for the space.

Favourite room to decorate and why? Damon: It would have to be the back end of the house because it felt like a new-build.

Where do you find your inspiration?Makenzi: We are both heavily inspired by Instagram – the series of artworks down the hallway is by a Mexican artist living in California whom Damon came across one night while exploring on Instagram. Searching through secondhand stores also inspires us, and we love to go to open homes of older homes to bounce ideas off one another about how we could recreate our house.

Why does this home work so perfectly for you both?Makenzi: We love living by the sea and being able to walk to our local cafes and the beach. The open-plan living and indoor-outdoor flow are great; we love it when the house is full of friends and family gathering around the kitchen island or out on the deck.

What was the most special part of this project?Makenzi: We would like Damon’s parents, Heather and Craig, to know just how much we appreciate all their help and how special the project was because we got to do it all together as a team.

A good color wheel is a must-have tool for decorating. If you’re wondering what colors go together, the answer is on the color wheel. If you know how to “read” a color wheel, then you can figure out the best color combinations.

Now that we have a terrace with a fatso view, we’ve been looking at minimalist planter options and found this image of a cool one at Houzz: a four cabinet file cabinet with drawers removed, turned on its back. It is one of a series of ?file cabinet planters made by Minimis?and has a pricetag of nearly $800. Yikes! So we poked around for other options and found several people had the same idea. Check out this d-i-y before-and-after we found at Pretty Shiny Things:
