After 20 years of marriage, Matthew was setting out on his own. After the painful process of dividing the belongings was over, he decided to make an investment purchase of a house for his two teenage kids to call home.
The house had ‘good bones’, located in a great area but the catch was it’s heart was well and truly stuck in 1970’s decor hell. This simply would not do, there was simply no way they could entertain guests, whinged his 15 and 17 year olds. An interior facelift was well and truly needed.
After bemoaning of his woes to several work colleagues, Yelda’s name was brought up. Without hesitation, he contacted her to explain his current predicament, and with a sympathetic ear (Yelda has two teenage children herself) she came on board, guns ablazing. With two excitable teenagers involved in the process, Yelda had plenty to work off on how she could create a contemporary look while still being fun and bold enough to appeal to the ‘cool kids’.
They were all so ecstatic with the end result. Matthew saw his kids wanting to spend more time at home than ever before, somehow even the house parties didn’t entertain like they once did. As for the ‘cool kids’, you couldn’t keep them away, even with Matthew’s daggy dad music.
