Take the personalised “The Marshalls” welcome mat out front, the chic, soothing palette throughout, a fabulous black and white photo wall near the entranceway, filled with family memories, and then there’s that gorgeous garden out back that looks like it’s been there for decades.
"I wanted our home to be beautiful but still really liveable," says Zoe, who worked with architect and interior designer Laura Stanton of Stanton Architects to give the home a makeover.
The pair switched out lights for contemporary styles, fitted luxurious drapes to replace blinds and swapped around the dining and lounge rooms to make the most of that beautiful outlook out back.
The couple also have their own bedrooms, as Benji was "sick of being kicked in the ribs to get out for snoring," Zoe says.
The result is a masculine space of Benji’s own, filled with deep navy linen and enough space for Benji and the couple’s two dogs, Lucky and Mila, to have a good night’s rest. In contrast, Zoe’s room next door is all plush prettiness and five-star appeal.
“My bedroom is my sanctuary,” says Zoe. “And the only time we’re not together is when we are asleep.”
