This young couple used their love of character homes to turn a prefab house into a unique family home filled with vintage treasures

Angela Fairmaid， 33 (founder of Miss Vintage)， Julian Fairmaid， 34 (civil construction operations manager)burlap throw pillow covers， Georgia， 2， and Cleo the cat.
The solid mahogany vintage sewing cabinet under the television that has been converted into our entertainment unit. The quality of this kind of piece often surpasses a lot of new items available these days.
Our antique valve radio. Georgia and I listen to it while eating breakfast every morning.
The layout of the home. All rooms are easy to get to without a long hallway to trek down.
Our large kitchen. A lot of new-builds have a small kitchen that is not in proportion with the house. Ours is about one-third of the total open-plan living area space. And our kitchen island bench is 3.5 metres long! It’s great.
I would increase the width of the hallway by 200mm and have a fourth bedroom/office. At the time of building， we didn’t think it was necessary，？but now， working from home， it would be nice.
I would upgrade the carpet. It would have cost about $3000 at the time but will cost us much more if we ever want to change it.
I would have a locking handle on the door through to the garage so when the garage door is open I wouldn’t need to worry about Georgia getting outside onto the road.

Lots of love and lashings of flair have made this predesigned house a unique and treasured home.
The pieces decorated with script and bearing a dragonfly motif were embellished by Angela.
Create a space that’s just for you – this could be as simple a reading chair with a nice light and cosy blanket.
The cosy couch is topped with an ever-changing array of cushions.
This vintage velvet-covered glory box is great as seating and toy storage.
The floral rug in Georgia’s room resembles one Angela had as a child.
The bedrooms feature a mix of retro and recent purchases. The beds are new， as Angela says： “It’s important that where you sleep is comfortable.”
