A 1960s Home Filled With Light and Personality

Though Tonita Coppard and her family had always lived in old Queenslander-style homes, over time she noticed that her young family’s needs and tastes were changing. “I longed for more of an open plan and found myself ogling at the ‘modern classics’ in every furniture magazine I could find,” she says. An experienced hairdresser of 30 years, Coppard says she prefers to work with an existing structure to improve — much like hairdressing. “I’d see homes that I’d either walk or drive by and know exactly what was wrong with them and what could be done to make them look better.”

When it came to creating the right home for their family in Australia, Coppard and her partner were sure they didn’t want to expose themselves to the “torture” of building and would rather renovate when the right house came along. Which it did, in 2004: an unspoiled 1960s house with a flat roof.
