Belmont Old Queenslander Interior Design
>> The brief: After a mid-air incident, Caroline almost died 13 times and endured multiple bone breaks. With a new appreciation for life, she and her husband Bruce quit their jobs and bought an old, two-storey Queenslander to slowly and lovingly renovate. Nestled in a Papua New Guinea-inspired tropical landscape, complete with peacocks, the pair envisioned an orange tree ceiling mural for their breakfast verandah, colour on their plaster friezes and ceiling roses, and the painting of their life-size emu and kangaroo fibreglass animals! After several attempts to find the right artist for the job, they booked a date with Sharron.
>> Our strategy: Ceiling murals designed, Caroline showed Sharron her bathroom and explained their plans, only to hear all about Tailored Artworks’ Art into Mosaic offering, which she and Bruce loved. Sharron sent them several options from her library of artworks that would unite with the other projects, colours, and style of their Belmont home. The mosaic Caroline and Bruce chose depicted a lake with melaleucas and water lilies, which they had on their property! After weeks of hard work, the ceiling panels painted in studio were installed, and Sharron painted the friezes in situ. The fibreglass animals went into position, and the custom mosaic tiles were delivered, ready for Bruce and his builder to install. We’ll show more photos as the renovation is completed.
>> The results: “Sharron made us a bathtub mosaic, painted some fibreglass animal statues, a ceiling mural and decorate the friezes in our lounge and dining room. She was so amazing to us and helped us make informed decisions and work creatively so as our art would flow through the house. She gave 110% to the commissions at our home. We are so happy at how our house looks now we are asking her to do some more projects for us.” Bruce and Caroline Southcott, Belmont 2018
