When Emily Loxton isn’t recreating rooms for clients as a colour consultant, she’s busy renovating her own home and managing a household of five. In an unusual move in Autumn 2007, Loxton relocated her family from a large home in Mosman to a smaller home just around the corner. “The big formal rooms were just never being used,” Emily says. With the city and the Northern beaches close by, flanked by friends and family in the east and north sides of Sydney, Mosman was always where the Loxton’s planned to raise a family. “The house had been neglected but we could immediately see the potential and we started to renovate,” says Loxton.
