After buying their apartment in the inner-city suburb of Brunswick three years ago, rope vessel artist Gemma Patford and graphic designer Duncan Legge were determined to turn it from drab, rundown, dated disaster to something light, airy, welcoming, and altogether more modern—with a touch of nostalgia. It was an uphill battle—the carpet was horrific, the kitchen unsightly, and the oven was sitting in the middle of the room—but the pair were determined to make something of it.
