Mel Armstrong, creator of code 5032, shares photographs of the once tired old Kapiti Coast beach house she has transformed into a beautiful contemporary home

 



The lovely Mel Armstrong has woven her incredible creative magic once again, transforming a dated, semi-detached beach house on the Kapiti Coast into a light, contemporary, spacious and pretty darn beautiful home.

Mel, creator of code 5032, recalls the excitement of being able to see beyond the tired interior of this property and visualise the gem beneath the surface.  

With this place I fell in love with the chapel ceilings - despite the dated hints of green, yellow and pink I could envision it as a light open space. From the first instance I could see this place had the potential to be amazing and that's without mentioning the constant rolling of the sea, birds chirping and the potential of enhancing the sea view.

"I love being able to take a property from the vision I see initially to fruition without blowing the budget by recycling and enhancing the house's natural features. To see a home come alive and showcase its beauty and glory is really exciting."

"This beach house was very tired and dated so I'm 'squeally' excited to see it looking like the cosy, light, bright home it now is, ready for some lucky family to enjoy in the fabulous beach paradise of Raumati South."
