As a designer my love of nature is possibly one of my strongest design influences, most of the colours I use come from natural elements like the sea, shells, walks on the beach, collecting, driftwood, the depth of blues in the ocean, the country, flowers, rolling green hills. They say blue and green should never been seen, how wrong they are, I couldn't love a more perfect colour combination.

Our Verandah House coastal room represents the true Queensland relaxed look. With a cream cable-knitted throw draped over our built-in bench seat, layered with a mix of linen, beaded and embroidered cushions and accessorised with beautiful coral pieces and decor books...what's not to love! The bar trolley is a big favourite & a must have for any living/dining area. The wallpaper and custom panel work are added features and allows us to change the look every season.

I must say I am really loving my blog again! I have missed chatting about my weekly happenings and sharing our design world and experiences with you.
Today I thought I would share some more photos of our showroom, we opted for a classic yet edgy look that works in both a traditional and modern interior. We wanted to show Brisbane an entirely different look, our design philosophy is classic timeless looks that are edgy and fashion forward yet liveable and practical.
I love working with colour but I am even more drawn to the classic beauty of neutrals with plenty of texture and interest, more on that over the coming weeks. Currently we are working on some exciting projects: a boutique guest house, a large coastal home, another fabulous beach house property and to top it off two lovely clients whose children have moved on and its now time for the parents to spoil themselves and make the family home more of a grown up place for adults.
We are also working on a new build which is always fun and my favourite type of project as I get to be involved in the entire building and design process, there is nothing more rewarding than that final installation day!
So my blog is going to more about our design process and happenings at Verandah House, we can't wait to share more with you soon.
