Our clients gave us total freedom to design a home which made the task very exciting and daunting all at the same time. We wanted to create a classic beach house however it was important that it appealed to the majority. We also had the difficult task of building a large home on a very small block of land that literally has the water lapping up to its backyard.
We wanted the floors to appear like driftwood with a recycled grey-wash finish which we also continued onto the large deck areas. The walls were painted a soft grey with timber panel millwork throughout the home. The home was furnished on a tight budget so we opted to decorate the main areas in classic neutral tones so our potential buyers could add their own design aesthetics and personal touch to the home.
If you live in the Brisbane area you're more than welcome to visit the open houses, our VH team will be there for a chat and you can see in person the beauty of this home. The open house is this Saturday 18th May from 3-4pm. Visit our Verandah House Facebook for more details. We would love to hear your thoughts!

Clearly its no secret my passion for blue....mix it up with green and you have the most striking and stand out colour scheme just the way nature intended, the green mountains against the deep blue sea, birds, flowers, the skyline, architecture, or fill a vintage blue ginger jar with palm leaves! the more I look around this colour combo makes perfect sense to me.

Just because.....it feels very me!
This week at Verandah House we are off to the Sydney gift fair, its always an exciting time as we get to catch up with friends, buy lots of great new products and feel totally renewed and inspired, okay I may be getting carried away here, its not New York, India or Paris which is on our agenda, but all the same I often find some great new finds!
We are also on the look out for our new studio, I was super excited to find the perfect location, just what I was looking for only to find out in the recent floods it was completely covered in water to the roof, okay not such a great location after all...dont you hate when you get super excited about an idea and then bang its over!! I then found a fabulous old church and thought this could be amazing but then again it just felt too weird. I did hit the brakes of my car and had a near car accident when finding the most stunning old white building only to find the rent was in keeping with the exterior, way out of budget, the next attraction a stunning warehouse with old timber floors, timber beams and absolutely no car spaces or parking, do we need to park our cars? cant I take a cab? okay Im not thinknig clearly we do need clients to visit!
I am discovering this exciting mission is not as easy as I hoped the ugly facades of commercial buildings are a mass compared to the unique character I would love to find, clearly I need a reality check or a big fat cheque book, anyway happy hunting we go!
Have a great week x
