BEAUTY: Interiors--Australian Renovation

This is an absolutely fantastic example of a complete renovation in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. I love how the homeowners kept the original stone fireplace breast along with the copper hood in the living room. Any other renovators would have gotten rid of those elements, but what looked dreadful and dated before now adds character and style to a modern space. The new copper globe pendant lights pick up the copper hood, making a nice statement; every room needs a bit of shine. And the reading nook off to the side is a wonderful moment.

And the transformation of the exterior is amazing as well.
