We meet the homeowners from this week's episode of Love It Or List It Australia.
This week we chat to Damien and Olivia after they decided to love their Ormiston home, following a whole lot of disagreement over their family abode.
Olivia had a great feeling about their home and wanted to make things work from the start. However, Damien was over trying to make their house a liveable home - until Neale gave them the reno of thier dreams.
Why did you 'Love It?'
"We loved it because it breathed a new life into our home that it had been screaming for. Olivia always knew that this house would have the potential to be amazing. It is in the prefect location, it just needed some love."
What were the top three reasons for your decision?
"We actually still hadn’t decided what we were going to do even up until 20 minutes before our final sit down with Neale and Andrew. We managed to have a little chat about our decision and came to the realisation that:
1. We had everything we wanted right in front of us
2. The location was actually really important and...
3. Sometimes bigger is not always better!"
How has your life changed since the show?
"Our lives have changed in the way our house now functions really well. There is a beautiful harmony between the inside and outside. The kids are so happy as they now have their own space. And we can easily entertain family and friends without having to hide away in an awkward and noisy space."
Most surprising thing that happened during the filming process?
"The most surprising thing that happened for us during the filming process was realising that you need to be open and let go of control in order to truly appreciate the renovation process, which is actually a really hard thing to do!"
