Hana and I take a step back in time over a cuppa, as she shares stories of growing up in the home with her grandparents, reminiscing on the splashes of colour which remained untouched up until 2019.
“There was green and yellow everywhere – even the carpet was green,” Hana says, alluding to the first changes that needed to be made.
“Secondly, the joinery and surfaces weren’t up to standard functionally – the doors were broken, there were lots of chipped areas, and there wasn’t enough bench space.
“So, over lockdown last year I painted the cabinets white, but as you can expect, a DIY job by someone who isn’t a tradesperson isn’t nearly as good,” Hana laughs.
