This traditional free-standing weatherboard home was beloved by our clients for it’s layout and functionality, but it was feeling tired and lack-lustre and they longed to inject some colour and personality in to it.

The project brief was to decorate and style most rooms within the home to create a cohesive, layered and finished look while including their many treasured pieces and collections from family life.
Two different living zones were created – one which was designed for adult seclusion and the second downstairs for the children with a connection to the backyard and pool. The Kitchen and connected dining area were updated with some tweaks to the joinery, a chalkboard wall and some clever styling.
