Germaine lives with her family in an 1800s-era home in Sydney, Australia. A few years ago she and her husband decided to renovate their plain, awkwardly-shaped kitchen and dining area, and open it up into a light-filled multi-purpose room for cooking, dining, relaxing, and play. We absolutely love the result! It's white, bright, and so inviting. Read on for more from Germaine on the process of renovation, and to see more photos of the kitchen as it is now.
