Master bedroom/WIR/home office (garage and spare room conversion)

Master bedroom/WIR/home office (garage and spare room conversion)

this was a fairly large job converting the old 'dungeon' garage and 1 of the downstairs bedrooms into our master retreat including large WIR and home office. statred with profesional abatement of the asbestos cladding, non strructural wall removal and rebuilding. As you can see form the first image the garage was more like a torture chamber and my vision of my dream walk in closet and home office was hard to invision for most people haha

this (first image) is our first mapping out of the space, it also became the new entry foyer and spiral stairs but that is for another post

we converted the garage and the larger 'master' of the dowstairs bedrooms (originaly our house was typical QLD'er style with 3 bed 1 bath upstairs and laundry dowstairs someone then converted it to two apertments with two 3 bed apartments on each floor completely seperated with only external stairs)

so in order to reclaim as one family home we had to bring in internal stairs to connect the floors

our style is insudtrial scandi for most part but wanted somthing richer and cosier wood colour wise for the bedroom so went with the dark choclate tones, leaving the concrete footings and beams esposed only inhanced this style. brick wallpaper from holland and i also made our bed from scratch from reclaimed timber and black metal square pipes

other furntiure from ikea, WIR fitout ikea ns styling kmart

i can tseem to find the 'finish' image of our home office sadly

Be great if you could get that finished shot of the home office @TayaRoberts. It would be great to see it.
