Strathpine – Contemporay Meadow Themed Decorating
>> The brief: Tony and Pat sat in on Sharron’s Home Show talk and booked there and then. Like so many, they also wanted to start with art. The brief for their home on the meadow included replacing their African theme with a contemporary style, updating their kitchen and the overall decor.
>> Our strategy: Sometimes clients are scared of colour but love it once they experience its power. Based on Tony and Pat’s choices from her sample album, Sharron used a dribble technique to express ‘the spirit of the meadow’ and confirm a classic contemporary style which gave scope to Carmel, from Touches Interiors, for more design features. Carmel’s new kitchen, rugs, custom upholstery, cushions, professional paint work and accessorising completed the brief beautifully.
>> The results: “Sharron and I took Tony and Pat’s tired space to a new level of colour with their favourite Blues, Greens and a touch of the Orange reminiscent of South Africa. I had their beloved lounge re-upholstered with modern geometric fabrics, added a new transitional rug, and complimentary white, teal and yellow accessories. My team refreshed the interior’s feel with wwhitewashedwalls and a newly fitted modern kitchen which provided better function and storage along with the luxury of a new stove, dishwasher and statement piece glass splash back. New shutters, lighting and refurbished floors and stairs set the stage for Sharron’s Artwork, ‘Life on the Meadow’.

“We are thrilled with everything and could never have achieved anything like it on our own, so a big thank you! It has all come together so well, and we are enjoying it all. Our daughter who returned home from living overseas said that she feels like she is living in a resort with all the changes, as did we!” Pat and Tony, Strathpine, Qld
