This is the first research project to simultaneously examine gaps evident between professional design process and amateur creative practice (in modifying home), between idealised and realised concepts of self-place, and consumptive and transformative behaviour. The thesis significantly demonstrates the validity of bricolage and hybridity to both design research and practice, providing new models for co-creation and co-design relevant to all those involved in the modification of home and home life; the space of lifestyle.
