Project by: Anna Williams
Location: Townsville, Queensland, Australia

We love examples of homes that can mix a stylish look for grown-ups that still have room for kids to be comfortable and happy. The designer Anna Williams provided inspiring before and after photos plus a list of some of the resources used to create this look!

From the designer:

This young family had a small walk-through space between the outdoor and kitchen areas. Thanks to the large number of doors going into this area, they were struggling with how to make the space usable.

I suggested some custom built-in storage might solve the issue of the awkward end wall, and provide some much needed closed storage and open display space. With young kids, they also had plenty of gorgeous kids' artwork and family photos they wanted to display. We used a mix of white frames and canvases to create a gallery wall full of life.

A light timber coffee table can be easily pushed out of the way when it's time to play on the soft rug, while the sophisticated yet casual furniture creates a welcoming vibe, no matter your age!
