Children of the Sea
>> The brief: Kelly and her retired police officer husband came from New Zealand to build a new home at Bracken Ridge to be closer to their grandchildren. Kelly needed new living room furniture and decided to use a Tailored Artworks painting to inspire her colours and styling. Sharron found that most of Kelly’s existing décor had the feel of a Contemporary Rustic Beach style, and designed artwork to combine Shorncliffe, the sea, their grandchildren, and a reference to New Zealand with Kouri shells for painting in a Private Adult Art workshop. The result is a wonderful Daliesque 2.7m x 1.2m oil painting.
>> Our strategy: At the Planning Session, Kelly chose an artwork from the Tailored Artworks Style Book that Sharron was able to adapt to her story. The artwork suited the proportions of Kelly’s home, and Dali’s curvaceous style picked up the floors’ curves. This décor suited light, warm-cool colours to unite existing accessories, and contrast and cool the flooring. Sharron briefed Interior Designer Sandra Dara from New Leaf Design Studios to complete the home’s décor with rugs, new cushions, and accessories. We’ll show you the results Feb 2018!
>> The results: “The artwork looks amazing, and I often think, ‘Gosh, is this really my house?!’ Sharron is a talented artist who made our art workshop day fun, and we now have a beautiful artwork to treasure.” Kelly, Bald Hills
