House Envy: Darren & Deanne Jolly's Suburban Paradise!

Do you watch The Block? In our home, we are huge fans of the Aussie home renovation show. Couple of seasons ago Darren & Dee Jolly were my hot favourites on the show. Their design acumen, tenacity and eye for detail is truly commendable. Dee's impeccable styling and design skills are so on en pointe with what is trending in the world of design at the moment- a soft modern Scandinavian style with a lived-in yet luxe and stylish feel!After the Block, the renovating couple, undertook a mammoth task of renovating an old worker's cottage into a contemporary Australiana style family home in Melbourne's suburb of Kew East. The renovation was completed in just under a year and cost almost a million dollars! But the result is a stunning visual feast! The home features multiple living spaces and a beautiful outdoor area and pool. Each room is a stylist's dream and you can literally see Dee's signature eye for detail in every vignette. The use of a soft and subtle paint palette, calacatta marble, seagrass wallpaper, floating vanities and crinkled linen are all Deanne Jolly's trademark! So take a leisurely walk through this charming family home and see if the green eyed monster bites you too! Carefully thought out furniture placement, gorgeous play of light and natural textures, high spec finishings and fabulous use of every space makes this tastefully renovated Californian bungalow just perfection! I'm definitely smitten and bitten by the green eyed monster. You?

Share with us in the comments below which is your favourite room in this beautiful home.

P.S. Darren and Dee's four bedroom Californian bungalow sold for more than a cool $2.9 million and set a new benchmark for Kew East!

Till next time... don't forget to watch The Block starting Sunday July 30th on Channel 9!
