Episode Two: Living Room Reveal


This home is about living life to its fullest. In episode two we reveal not one but two living rooms and the Dunne homes best kept secret – the hidden bar! By moving the kitchen into the extension we’ve created an open plan living space which is perfect for family life. 


So when it came to the living spaces for this house, we wanted to create the ultimate living room which meant a space where everyone could be – whether it was just the four of us relaxing together and when we’re entertaining. 

The way we achieved this was really locking down on the furniture selections. We worked with Bryce from Harbro furniture to create this really low soft organic modular sofa that doesn’t have a corner. We were able to create maximum living space without the furniture taking up too much real estate.

Here’s the final family living space. This room still feels really open plan and you can move easily around but it’s got this sense of comfort and coziness for us as a family. My favourite thing in the living room is absolutely the Rufus sofa from Habro furniture. We added to this space the Coonara fireplace just to add that extra sense of warmth and on a cold winter’s night with the fire burning this is the perfect place for our family to hang out. 

And this has to be the living rooms best kept secret, the hidden bar. We knew that we wanted to be able to incorporate a bar somewhere within the home and finding the perfect spot for it was initially a real challenge. So when we created this integrated bank of cabinetry within the living room we knew that we’d be able to tuck it away behind the bifold doors.

And in addition to our family living space we’ve also got this adults retreat. We wanted this space to have a little bit more romance and a sense of luxury so we’ve added the sheer curtains which have got a beautiful movement and the absolute hero in this room has to be the sofa from Harbro. We went with a linen for this sofa to give it that sense of romance and knowing that it didn’t have to be as hardy as our everyday family sofa. I love what we’ve achieved in this room that it’s the perfect place to retreat after a busy day.
