A peek at a before and after project

Today is one of those days where I’m stuck in my office catching up on paperwork, making phone calls and sitting at the computer – not getting out and seeing much to inspire me! So I thought I’d share a couple of photos a client sent me of the progress being made in her home. My clients recently moved into a beautiful modern house, with gorgeous sandstone walls and water views, but wanted to inject a little more colour and punch with the decor. We also wanted to work with their amazing Aboriginal art collection. Here’s a before shot of the ‘adult’ living space, which centred around a painting by Minnie Pwerle:

And here’s a couple of progress shots with the key pieces in place. Apparently the hot pink rug is a big hit!:

In the bedrooms my clients inherited these slightly strange and dated upholstered panels as feature walls, which were recovered with wallpaper to tie in with the other decor choices. Here’s an idea of the bedrooms before:

and after:

My client had the idea of turning what was formerly the dining room into a smart playroom (keeping the large wall aquarium). Here’s what it looked like before:

Again, we wanted to work around a painting, this time by Gloria Petyarre:

and then with the new rug:

The following isn’t the world’s greatest photo but I also wanted to show you a pic of the progress in my clients’ bathroom renovations. I love the wall of black and white Moroccan – inspired tiles in the shower!

Have a great Thursday! xx

Amazing before and afters

I’m sure there isn’t a person alive who doesn’t like seeing a good ‘before’ and ‘after’ room. I know it’s right up there with my favourite things! I came across these fantastic laundry makeovers over at Design Sponge. I just think they are amazing – what new paint or wallpaper can do! In particular I love the first makeover; the green chinoiserie wallpaper (of course), and the framed Chanel print. Reminds me that my own laundry is still waiting for its makeover, almost two years after we moved in!
