Design Inspiration | Church Turned Private Residence

Never have we ever had such a case of flooring envy as when we first spied this gorgeous church-to-home renovation. From the ceiling beams to the light fixtures to the arched doorways, this home in rural New South Wales is utter perfection. While a few alterations were needed in order to convert the church into a private residence, many of the original features were kept intact such as the church bell, various signage, and the exterior chalkboard that announced mass. The need for a kitchen was executed marvelously and successfully compliments the home's original architectural details. We even love the unexpectedness of the hidden bathtub -- how delightfully unconventional!
