Creating Windsor Castle

This traditional cottage was a renovator’s dream. Its size, shape and character made it quick and easy for Three Birds Renovations to tweak the floorplan and provide a modern, contemporary family home. They transformed the interior into a light-filled, multi-purpose, and open-planned space by knocking out walls, adding arches, and using a raw, earthy palette. The exterior used a paint refresh, new tiling and alfresco extension to update its previous dated facade. The cottage is now dubbed the ‘Windsor Castle’, thanks to Three Birds Renovations.

A glimpse into this family-friendly haven 

Take a peek at the family home, that Bonnie, Erin and Lana deemed their favourite renovation to-date. Their vision was to provide a vanity refresh by using warm, neutral colours and simple, practical finishes – like the dining bench that extends to the living room.

Open-plan living

When the team chose this home, they knew it had the potential to be something special. They knocked down walls and created arches to open up the space. Each area welcomes and draws you to the next and can be used for any family need – whether it’s work, play or relaxation.

Dining room

Warm, earthy tones

The subtle brown-pink tones seen in the living area were carried through to the dining space to create another welcoming environment.

A bathroom oasis

This dreamy ensuite uses a subtle pink palette, like Dulux Pancake Mix, to complement an arched mirror and in-set shelf, a floating timber bench, and a walk-in shower.

Master Bedroom

Contemporary class

The master bedroom is an adult retreat, built for maximum relaxation. Its earthy palette is adorned with raw timber, fresh linen and layered drapes – the perfect place to wind down.
