Palm Springs Style

When Sandro and I purchased this 3 bedroom red-brick property in Umina Beach we knew it was ugly & dated but it's structure was solid! The location, well it is 7 mins walk to the beach, plus the size of the block screamed potential! I'm excited to announce after over 12 months of hard work, lots of sweat and tears and hours and hours of editing, our online series James Bought A House is finally ready to go!I Follow our journey and watch this online series as week after week I reveal the products and solutions that I've chosen to transform this ugly old house into a Palm Springs inspired Masterpiece.

Watch from Episode 1 as we walk through this very ordinary Australian red-brick house and see what can be done to turn it into the home we want to live in.

When we decided to film this renovation we knew that there'd be dramas, delays and some disappointment along the way, but don't be disappointed as we kept most of these away. Our intention was to create an online series that showed the options and products available to anyone wishing to renovate a humble three-bedroom home.

No mansion here, or multi-million dollar budgets, but the simple challenges anyone can relate to.
