“It’s worth shopping around and getting two or three quotes as there can be a lot of variation, especially on higher-cost jobs involving kitchens and bathrooms. Also, keep an eye on the smaller bills as these can add up very quickly.”

Aimee’s indoor plant tips

Aimee is from a family of gardeners – her late grandmother, mother and aunty always had indoor plants and impressive gardens. “I guess it was always going to be an interest of mine,” she laughs. “I love the life that indoor plants inject into the home and I also love taking the time to care for them.”

Aimee’s advice for ailing house plants is to cut them right back and change up the way you care for them before deciding whether or not to throw them out. “I have managed to save a few plants this way and they have come back stronger than before,” she says.

“Know what your house plants like in terms of light, water and humidity, and then stick with what works – even if that means owning a lot of the same species of plant!”

The couple love the industrial-grade vinyl flooring they chose for the kitchen, dining and family room. “It’s been incredibly hard-wearing but is easy on the feet and easy to clean. The kids scootered and biked around inside when they were little, plus the dog is always inside, but you’d never know to look at it!”

Aimee wanted to keep the bathroom as timeless as possible, so she went with a concrete-look floor tile and a classic white subway tile. (They carried these choices into the laundry as well.) Final touches of wooden shelving, a handmade ladder for towels and lot of plants complete the look.

Most of us aren’t interior designers by trade and that’s okay. Whether you think of interior design as an enjoyable hobby or a necessary evil that helps keep your home looking presentable, sometimes it can be tough to understand the industry lingo. After all, how often do you hear about Tertiary Colors, anyway?
