Seduced by city and mountain views, a Brisbane family moved into this Queenslander
with one thing in mind – to renovate it and make it their own.
When they moved into the house in 2008, red featured heavily on the walls throughout. What they really wanted was to create an interior with a contemporary feel that reflected the typical Queenslander exterior. Built over three levels the bottom two levels were predominantly updated early on, leaving the top living area to be completed in the final renovation. It’s taken eight years but finally their home is finished.
A well-designed laundry is a big plus in my books – we certainly spend enough time in there! It needs to be practical and functional to meet the demands of family living and beautiful enough to entice us in there.
Here’s my main considerations when it comes to creating a laundry that is both functional and beautiful.
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all bathroom solution, but there are certain elements that can help to deliver the bathroom of your dreams.
A bathroom is a place for reflection and relaxation, to unwind at the end of a busy day and to beautify us for the day ahead. To face the demands of modern living, bathrooms need to be customised to meet individual client needs.
More so now than ever, clients’ want the day spa experience created in their own home, but creating the ideal bathroom isn’t as straightforward as replicating an inspirational luxury hotel bathroom.
So how do you create a bathroom that meets your needs and is big on style?

The owners of this new build home in rural Goulburn purchased the property with a frame, roof and set of plans that didn’t really meet the needs of their family or lifestyle. They needed a design that suited the rigours of day-to-day life with children, with an aesthetic and practicality to cater for their frequent large-scale entertaining. To help them with their project they approached Canberra interior design firm Bella Vie Interiors.
So it’s time for a new kitchen? Whether you are building or renovating, getting the kitchen of your dreams isn’t as simple as looking around a kitchen showroom or flicking through a magazine and picking one. There are a number of considerations required to plan the kitchen of your dreams.
It’s been far too long between blog posts so today I’m catching up on some rather overdue sharing with a kitchen, bathroom and laundry completed earlier this year.
Recently one of my former clients, photographer Rowanne Bowman, spent some time photographing one of my completed projects. Working on this traditional-style kitchen, bathroom and laundry was a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with a client with a definite style in mind, and was a chance to transform three lack-lustre rooms into rooms with style and personality.
