Tenille Holt, 38, from the Gold Coast, said she spent 15 years looking high and low for our home forever, and didn't find it until last year when she and her husband Myles found a home found on the Gold Coast would renovate later.

12 months ahead and the home of Tenille is now the image of Hampton's inspired perfection.

With its sleek white finishes and minimalist aesthetics, it is exactly what the 38-year-old always dreamed of – but it didn't come without months of hard work.

& # 39; We almost gave up, but one night my husband was scrolling through Real Estate online when we saw her, & # 39; she told FEMAIL.

& # 39; This was the place. This had so much potential to renovate and expand to our taste. It also had great views and the privacy that we had always dreamed of. & # 39;

Without wasting even one day, the next day Tenille and Myles went to an open day, where they made an offer and it was accepted.

& # 39; We knew very little that we were about to start the most stressful 12 months of our lives, & # 39; said Tenille.

So how did they do the renovation and turn the tired, dated home into something worthy of a Pinterest sign?

Tenille said she started with a plan.

& # 39; The vision for the renovation was to create a luxurious yet practical resort-style home. I wanted to take everything I love from our favorite resorts and destinations around the world. & # 39;

She said that she and her partner both travel a lot for work and a & # 39; very busy life & # 39; – and thus create a space & # 39; that felt calm and had room to sit and absorb the view & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We've literally stripped the entire interior of the house and we've done a huge expansion in the master suite & she said.

There was literally not one thing in the house that we didn't change dramatically

Tenille said they also & # 39; external extensions with outside decks and entertaining spaces & # 39; and built a gym.

& # 39; In the process, stairs were dismantled, floors were raised, new ceilings were installed, all bathrooms were stripped, all floors were changed throughout the house, new doors were placed everywhere, the kitchen, butlers and washroom were demodled and redone designed … oh and we can't forget all landscaping!

& # 39; My favorite part of the house to do was without a doubt my amazing walk-in closet. I love everything to look neat, clean and tidy. & # 39;

The 38-year-old said she worked with many cabinet makers to bring her vision for this room to life, but she wouldn't change it for the world.

& # 39; The end result is even better than I could have imagined & # 39 ;, she said.

The 38-year-old also said that you can do a lot yourself.

She designed a lot of furniture herself – and became technical with installing what she could do at home.

& # 39; We've had a lot of hiccups along the way and work is still ongoing, but it's a big project and I think you should expect that, & # 39; she said.

Tenille said she expects to have the entire house ready for Christmas – and just in time for her first real party there.
