Swedish summer in Sydney: Naomi and Frag Woodall's apartment reno

When my dear friends Frag and Naomi Woodall purchased a 1940's 2 bedroom apartment in a quiet leafy street of Sydney's east, they told us all they 'had plans to make a few changes'. Within about six months after their purchase of the property, the space was completely transformed from a pokey, tired little pad to a bright, beautiful home with flowing living spaces with charming fixtures and thoroughly thought-through design details. This incredible residential DIY reno was developed around the idea of it being a contemporary rendition of a 'swedish summer cabin'. The identification of the Scandinavian influences isn't all that essential; the way this creative and hardworking team have breathed new life into their home is quite outstanding.

Hey! I did that!

Always a bit of a proud moment when one is thumbing through a magazine at the supermarket, and one spots an advertisement designed by oneself. Especially satisfying when one notices that the paper stock for this page is a smooth uncoated, different to the other shiny thin pages of the publication.
