Courtney Adamo is a family of seven with her husband and five children. In 2015, Adamos sold their house in London and traveled to different countries for a year, searching for the most suitable location for them.
Adamos came from Byron Bay in northern New South Wales and enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle there. They enjoyed surfing in the morning, making hot coffee, and cooking family dinners under the sunset with Byron syrup in the evening. Therefore, the family of seven decided to leave London behind and stay in Australia permanently.
“I came to see it out of curiosity, with zero expectations,” Adamo recalls. “When I walked into the house, I felt immediately at home. It sounds so cliche, but it’s true. Having lived in London for 12 years, always in old, Victorian homes, I felt right at home in this old house with its creaky floors and old windows, tall ceilings, and rickety old doorknobs. I felt like I was being hugged.”
The house needed some serious renovations. Adamos rearranged the house. Moved the kitchen to the back of the house. Added a second bathroom, laundry room and a bedroom.
“I wanted to create a home that felt unique to our family, with mementos from our travels, favourite art on the walls, favourite books on display, most-loved toys in baskets, plants in pots,” Adamo explains. “It gives me so much pleasure creating a place that feels like home to our family.”
As a result, he created a comfortable family home full of life and love. A place where kids can cook with their dad in the kitchen, grab the surfboard and have fun on the beach. Adamo, on the other hand, has set up a place where he prepares e-courses on motherhood and pregnancy at his small table overlooking the garden.
