In editor Jo-Ann Marcelo’s 18-year-old home, what started as a bathroom renovation evolved into a full-scale remodel project. Her three-storey townhouse is now a quirky home with personality. Without the help of an architect or an interior designer, Jo-Ann took matters into her own hands and worked closely with the foreman to achieve the eclectic, free-spirited style she wanted.

 Jo-Ann had some practical requirements such as a child-friendly home for her grandchild who stays with them for most of the week and a more accommodating ground floor space for guests. These goals were accomplished without wavering from the editor’s aesthetic. Mismatched furniture, artwork collections and upcycled finds all coexist a happy abode with lived-in flair.
