Authenticity, charm, and personality take time to grow. This is true for people, and of course, for homes. Each room, walls, and windows evolve gradually over time until it reflects the unique characters of the people who live there. From simple rearranging to complicated redesigning and renovating projects, these are all part of a home’s evolution. Today’s Omysa home tour is all about transformation over the span of only 8 months. From a lifeless space to a chic, warm, and well-loved boho bungalow that’s completely inspired by nature, neutral tones, and rattan & wood pieces.
Audrey Faullummel and her small family moved into this 1,080-square-foot bungalow last June, a few months after the pandemic started. Audrey shares that it was not an easy house hunting journey in Montréal for them because there were not a lot of options in the market. So the couple decided to settle down in this small bungalow, even though there was a lot of renovation that needs to be done. Luckily, Audrey and her husband were not afraid to face the challenge as Audrey had plenty of great ideas and her husband was very handy.
After 9 months, Audrey is finally ready to share some parts of her boho bungalow filled with nature-inspired décor. Personal charm is everywhere in Audrey’s beautiful space. Her home certainly feels clean, cozy, and eccentric with lots of earthy pieces. Audrey and her husband are still in the process of redesigning and renovating other parts of their small bungalow, but Audrey is truly proud of how they are slowly turning this house into their forever little home.
Tell us something about your home
We bought this bungalow last June, so few months after pandemic started. This is not easy to become an owner in Montréal area at this time because there is not much house to sell in the market. So, we find this small bungalow with a lot of renovation to do, but my husband and I were not afraid of it. I had great ideas, and lucky for me, he is very handy. We live in our house for 8 months, but we have already renovated a lot. Sure, there is still a lot to do, but we are now proud to call this house our home.
