An Australian woman has shared the incredible bathroom ensuite makeover her ‘handyman hubby’ completed in 10 weeks – earning praise for its resort-style features.

The lady, who lives in New South Wales, revealed pictures of what her master ensuite looked like before and after the renovation on Facebook; exchanging the retro red tiles for a luxury grey and black matte finish.

This Black-and-White Bathroom Makeover Has Major Parisian Vibes

Posted on

For homeowners Chris Aswad and his husband, Chris Pridemore, their one-bedroom Morningside Heights apartment is their little piece of Paris. The couple, who married in Kauai, Hawaii, in 2018, are avid travelers and self-described Francophiles, and while their careers have kept them in the city, they found a historic property that they could easily transform as an homage to the City of Love.

Hannah Green’s stroke rehabilitation garden at Maidstone Hospital gets a makeover

Posted on

A garden which is used by stroke patients as part of their rehabilitation process has been given a make-over thanks to an army of volunteers and generous donations from the community.

Hannah’s Garden, at Maidstone Hospital, was created seven years ago after former stroke patient Hannah Green raised £5,000 to transform what was then a small grassy area next to the Stroke Unit into a tranquil space so that patients had somewhere to have some of their physiotherapy sessions outside or just to sit quietly and enjoy the sunshine.

Over time, the area had started to look a little tired and it was decided to give it a spruce-up.



The renovated garden has two new benches, multi-surface paths, plants and landscaping work, and a bespoke mural of a natural landscape painted by
