That’s a Wrap: Nick’s Place


Bec and George Douros’ series Nick’s Place has wrapped and needless to say the transformation of George’s childhood home into two three-bedroom townhouses is outstanding. The eight-part series followed the highs and lows of the renovation, while celebrating history and family values along the way.

George’s Dad, Nick, designed and built the brick house in Avondale Heights, Melbourne, in the 1970s, and the professional renovators documented their journey on the web series, Nick’s Place, which features online on Nectaar TV and on Channel 9’s Ready Set Reno. Bec and George worked with architect Sam Haberle of S. Group on the project, retaining the soul of the home while creating two socially responsible townhouses. One townhouse is Nick’s new home, and the other is for George’s brother, Michael.

Bec and George used Dekton by Cosentino® in both kitchens and Silestone in the bathroom, visiting the Cosentino showroom in Sydney to discuss options.

The transformation of Nick’s kitchen was one of the highlights of the series, with a green and textured palette in keeping with the original 1970s vibe. Bec selected Dekton® Vera for the kitchen benchtops, which has a concrete look to complement the green joinery and painted white bricks.

The kitchen in the second townhouse is more monochromatic with black, white and neutral tones. The beautiful veining of Dekton® Portum for the benchtop, splashback and rangehood is a stand-out feature.

Bec selected Silestone® Serena for the bathroom in the second townhouse. She used a large slab on the rear wall above the bath, creating a clean, smooth surface, illuminated by a circular wall light. It is matched with other tiles and fixtures in a soft, neutral palette creating a calm and relaxing space.

If you missed the series, you can still watch it on Nectaar TV. Congratulations to Bec and George on the renovation and we look forward to seeing what the couple take on next.
